    Holden have tricked you all : )
    I now believe the one posted on page 7 by Juzza, will be spot on the money low and mean like 1980's XJ Jag : ) with a very wide and long wheelbase. Probably it will weigh 3 tons and drink fuel like it's going out of fashion but thats how Holden like it :)

    hahaha don't you guys think you are jumping the gun a bit here. What we are looking at are butt ugly test mules that will look totally different to the shiny examples you will see in the show rooms.

    Ever seen the movie stars before they have their makeup on first thing in the morning??? Not a pretty sight!

    I honestly think the new VE wont look like this. Its a big leap from VT-VZ and it doesnt resemble anything Commodore or Australian.

    I remember reading a wheels mag that said the next commodore after VY was the VE, and that it was going to look like the current VZ model. I'm expecting the VE to look like a cross between the VT/X and the VZ (with the front similar to VZ and the rear similar, not the same, to VT/X)

    Sorry I have to ask, are you going to profit from this? If not, you can't be sued for copyright infringment, because your an "artist"

    just lookin at the new barina seda

    its interesting in its design

    frightfully similar to Ve stuff, only smaller e.g arch flares and big windows

    is it possible that it reflects what the VE will look like

    i doubt it, since the barina is korean if i'm not mistaken..

    The VE will only have very subtle hints at the VY-VZ range (headlight styling being the most prominant) i believe.. Holden copped a fair amount if criticism for the VY as the car was essentially the same as a VT.. albeit slightly pointier either end the middle of the car was IDENTICAL vt-vz. the VE will deviate completely from this body shape i believe.. why build a completely new car only to have it look the same as the one its replacing.

    It's happened before, don't forget the Camira.. Mini FWD Non-Australian Commodores they are, there's one that reminds me of a VL exec and one that reminds me of a VH (at the back)

    JD looks like a VL (kinda)
    I'm not sure about the other one there but it's got frontal styling like the VH (grill/headlight/bumper)

    It's just a bit of plastic and metal to get them looking however they want them to

    I reckon it's alright, I love all commodores new or old, It'll grow on all of u, just wait, the pics on page 13 seem most accurate, although i wish holden would actually listen to the opinions of those who bought they're products atleast in Australia where it grew it's aussie muscle view...*sigh* i'm only starting on holdens as my first car n was thinking to stick with it, but if this is the future, although i think it's alright, the future seems grim for holden, sorry to say

    Yeh agreed, i love holdens!! thats for sure! i just would apreciated it a little more if they came up with a few of their own designs and ideas. And that just doesnt go for holden, it goes for many of the car maunfactures.
    But having said that, i didnt become to love holdens for what they havnt done. ;)

    the clay model is the TT36, i made a thread about that commerical on the LS1 forums, the car in blue camo is just vZ if you pause the frames
     
  20. Sweet.. well seeing its "artistic expression" and the original photos are from motor magazine from memory.. Heres a wallpaper I made with photoshop months ago.. The big car image on the left is an old pic and the most work was the HRT version of the car.. Dont mind the screw ups like mirror writing and other things..
