Holdens Could Be Built In US And Shipped Down Under, World Upside-Down

With GM wrapping up auto manufacturing in Australia by 2017, those newer GM RWD cars like the Chevy SS and Caprice cop car need to be built somewhere, and that somewhere could be America. That means after years of getting secret Holdens in the US, we'll be doing the opposite, sending US-built GMs as Holdens. » 12/20/13 4:20pm 12/20/13 4:20pm

2017 Holden Commodore Could Be Chinese-Made, 4 Cylinder, FWD, Boring

What could make the news of GM phasing out Australian production worse for Holden fans? Maybe it'll be when the beloved Commodore line is turned into a, gasp, front-wheel driven four-cylinder sedan. From China, no less. Bad news for hoonage fans. » 12/16/13 10:51am 12/16/13 10:51am

The Vauxhall VXR8 Is A Corvette-Engined Wagon For The British

Since Cadillac is reportedly killing off its short-lived CTS-V Sport Wagon, if you want a really badass car with this body style in the US, you have to go for the awesome yet rather expensive Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon.
