eek FWD Commodore

I was talking to a mate, who said a mate of a mate, was doing some work for Holden, and he said he saw a current model commodore with the bonnet open with east west V6 in it. He said it had DOHC stamped on top of the engine. Has anyone else heard of this? I really hope they do go FWD, Ford will have to built another assembly line to cope with the demand

Probably got confused with a Vectra or some other Holden product.

Mabey he saw that electric-hybrid one which has a four-cylinder engine and batteries mixed together and i think it was front wheel drive.

He said it was a full size V6, and he said he could see the drive shafts to the front wheels, until some Holden heavies told him to leave.
I don't know if it is fact or weather this bloke is pulling his pud, but maybe Holden is that arrogant, they think people will still buy a FWD commodore in the same numbers as they do now?
