Good point, I suppose you have to ask who will be buying these cars?, GTS owners?. As Ford doesn't have anything around the same price, we won't be losing any current customers.HSE2 said:Sure the coupe is going to enjoy a Honeymoon period but do you think the sales will be sustainable?
Two Holden Monaro models are CV6 (S/C V6) and CV8 (225kw LS1).el2xr8 said:Ok let's have a look at the facts - it's gonna have either the asthmatic S/C V6 (silly silly option), the 255kW HSV V8 (the majority option), and the 300kW GTS donk (the rare option). Chances are it's gonna be heavier than the sedan for obvious reasons, so that won't bode well for the hard-core enthusiasts.
I am optimistic about the whole thing, it doesn't bother me that much. It could well turn out to be an overpriced, overweight, overrated piece of equipment!
Exactly right mate! Doesn't make a lot of sense, and unless they have suddenly decided to use fibreglass panels, I can't see it happening..Brendan said:

The two HSV models are Coupe GTO (255kw LS1) and Coupe GTS (300kw C4B).
Have heard that engineers inside Holden have quoted 250kg lighter than sedan but can't see how that much can be saved - especially as all models have lots of fruit.
I tend to agree with Pete, I think Holden will get a lot of mileage from the Coupe, even though the sales figures might not be too high. It's an image thing, front page news, Holden does it again!, what's Ford doing???. Hopefully they will get their advertising act together and really sell the TE stroker when the Coupe arrives.Aussie Pete said:I think Holden deserve credit for producing what is a damn fine looking car. I think it will do very well indeed. Well done Holden!
Having said that, wouldn't it be nice if Ford............
