Before anyone says anything about Photoshop, while these are indeed computer renderings of a VF Commodore coupe or VF Monaro...some input and work was done by Holden designers.

Production is unlikely.

That is a big b-pillarless coupe. Concept, or do the Aussies have more relaxed side impact standards?

*edit*
never mind

The rear end sits up too high in the trunk area. That puts it off for me.

I think it's just a VF Commodore somewhere back there. I don't believe SS comes in blue.

In production? When did they ever announce that they were taking orders? Or is this maybe a SA bound Chevrolet?

Nope, that's bound for US dealers. Not sure when ordering started up but it's in production for us now.

It was at one point I believe, then it was canned in favor of the LF3.

Makes me wonder if they will put the LF3 in the ATS V-sport, and if so, will they also do a "V". If so....then its got to have the LT1 baby.....ORRR maybe some new forced induction V8 that we haven't seen yet?

I think it's been virtually confirmed that the ATS-V will have the LF3 (no doubt Fenwick can let us know for sure). On top of that, I think the output is too close between the LF3 and LT1, and besides, I doubt GM would have the same powerplant in an ATS Vsport and the CTS Vsport.

If there is an ATS Vsport in the works, I see four possibilities: a) a high output LTG variant, b) a nerfed LF3, c) a new FI V6 we haven't seen yet, or d) a bigger FI four cylinder.

As far as I know ATS-V will get the LF3. LT1 was in the cards too but that seems to have faded away.

And not every model will get a Vsport variant.

That being said, remember that Cadillac has said Vsport could be nothing more than an appearance package depending on model. So...
