AnEmmoFan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
With the recent announcement that GM is going to sell its European business (Opel and Vauxhall) to the PSA group which includes Peugeot and Citroen, has anyone ideas on what that may mean in the medium term for a Holden badged supercar. Remember that the Insignia/Commodore comes from Germany.

In the medium term (this year and next) possibly nothing, in the long term, probably the end of their involvement, why would they continue when the series has no relevance to their stable of models.

Was announced here in Oz that the Opel deal would stand till at least 2022 with discussions beyond that to be had. So in the medium term no change from the current plans I would think. Beyond that, nothing definite at this stage BUT that timeframe IS 5 years away and a lot can happen in that time, both in the road car and the race car world.

GM still has the Cruze, Malibu and Impala in the US based on separate (although related) platforms, I would have to imagine they would use the next generation for future Holdens rather than outsource to PSA/Opel.

More likely to be related to the Buick Regal (also a rebadged Opel Insignia) or the Lacrosse, a model which comes with V6 engines up to 3.8 litres and made in the US, China & Korea.

The Insignia front end looks quite short (East West ONLY?)...will be interesting to see what sort of safety badge it gets to wear...

If you are referring to ANCAP, as from 2018 we will be aligned with NCAP, to share datta on vehicles.

What I meant is that there are already 'evolutions' of the pure-Opel designed cars that GM could use, as opposed to the pure re-badging of the Insignia and Astra. Not that the Commodore would become a Lacrosse clone in future.
