Is it a bad sign that that Auto Action link is dead now, or was an embargo broken?

**Caveat - if the story is true** I reckon the car itself is stage one, different engine will be stage 2. 2020?

Holden/GM will virtually be forced to bring the Camaro into the series in my mind if the Muzzie comes to fruition. By doing so it might just save the Holden fan from being disappointed at the lack of a hero car, and drive their sales. Pity it won't be an Aussie car, but we can't have everything. The bogans have been putting Chev badges on their Holdens for years anyway.

Why would they want a TT V6? Road car is a 4 or a V8 and everyone really wants the V8. So why run a V6 with all the costs involved.

FoMoCo already have an Ecoboost V6 ready to go, currently used in the GT GTE car. Using that would give a headstart on development that might get the car over the line for the start of next year's season.

Maybe but the V8 falls into the ready to go category too. Would save massively on development costs plus is market relevant and reduces parity issues.

I'm sure they'll have learned from the reaction to the GM V6TT, that it would not be a good idea.

I think the catagory will most likely head off on a different trajectory to what the new car trends are doing. With or without the help of manufacturers.

So will Ludo stay on Scotty's car, or be taken to develop the Mustang, if all this is true?

Wouldn't be beautiful if we could just transition from Falcon/Commodore to Mustang/Camaro and leave everything else alone.
