Holden as Lotus, interesting...

Its a interesting idea I think, I wonder if those in Holden are pursuing it?

Basically I hinting that Lotus may badge the Holden Coupe with some modifications and sell it as there global GT car to compliment there gokarts. V12 holden coupe named Lotus? Lotus can restablish a global foothold, holden/lotus sells more cars, holden gets credibility and breaks into the US market.

Ford could combat it, ProDrive versions of Falcons for the UK would be a start. If ford made a Two door they could perhaps sell it as a cheaper Lotus/Holden fighter, perhaps branded as a Aston Martin.

I don't know if it will ever happen, however seems like a good idea.. I wonder if ford is heading up the same path?

ford wont do nothing.

Since when do they combat holdens moves.
They just let themselves slide further and further back. while holder climb that ladder all the way to the top.

Ford has the global resources to do things. They just never use them.

You dont know how many enquiries I get from people wanting to import the Falcon XR8 Ute to the states.... Imagine how well Ford would do if they could sell that beast over there......

Anyway enough of my Ranting...
