Question New Turbo Laser??

Don't know if you all know, but there's the 21st anniversary coming up for the Laser.

So who thinks there will be a Turbo Laser on the roads..?? :s6: :s3

Just the sort of thing to get the laser going along nicely, and would do pretty well I reckon, if it was priced reasonably.

it ould be rather nice to see a turbo laser, but my concerns is that it will be unreasonably over priced. The current SR2 if you ask me is over priced as well, i would welcome to new model but not buy it if u ask me

Maybe when I trade my AUII XR6 for a Turbo AV XR6, the wife might let me trade the old Laser for a new TX3? !!!!!!!

A turbo laser would be nice but I know for sure it will be around $30k-$35k. I actually don think much of the Laser to begin with. To be honest Holden have the upper hand in this part with Astra and Vectra. I think for the long term, Ford should dump the Laser and bring in Focus....and an T/C RS version of course!

What? a non believer, stone him!!!!

The Laser has always been a very good car IMO. There isn't a great deal that goes wrong with them mechanically and they seem to last forever. I think Fords mistake was not having the hot versions for so long. That and they were so easy to break into!

The Laser is actually selling quite well. It's been a while since it has.

A turbo will be a great addition to the range. I think a resonable and acheivable price would be around $33k.
