    Yeah, that looks like a Skoda, but they look completely different to me.

    ...But hey, may as well add it to the list of other cars the VF allegedly looks like. :)

    Yep its a Skoda, I was getting all excited at the lights thinking I'd get the chance to really see what it looked like in the flesh, so you can imagine how disappointed I was when it rounded the corner.

    If you stop and think about how many new car designs there have been to date and how many new designs are released each year, of course cars are going to start resembling each other in some ways. There's only so many ways you can design a metal box before you've seen it before.

    At least we don't have Holdens sporting fake Rolls Royce grilles, as was so popular with many car makers in the 70's.

    i have mixed feelings about the VF, it doesn't really look like any sort of commodore, kinda reminds me of the new chrysler 300 or an oversized epica. Not really liking the new cars being produced, they look very similiar these days and although they are getting more powerful and more technologically advanced they are also getting fatter and heavier. i love all the older commodores especially the vx and vz ss.

    Bwah ha ha ha!! That's gold!

    But seriously, I feel like compiling all the cars in these threads that people reckon the VF looks like. I can't be bothered, but there's at least 20 - 30 of them.

    GET OVER IT!!

    IIRC when the VN / EA were first released, a lot of people thought they looked like each other. Not so much these days.

    I asked Captain Porksword the same question and he said it looks like a VF Commodore.

    I still reckon Holden peaked with the VY series Commodore. It was all down hill with wank factor and cheap plasticy interior from then on.
    I'll never sell my VY, you hear me Holden! From my cold dead hands!

    Nahh.. polishing cars is too much like hard work. You can get much more satisfaction polishing your knob for a lot less effort. (or so I've been told):spot on:

    LMFAO, you funny mother####er!

    To all you who have said what you think the VF looks like, you've currently said:
    - C Class Merc
    - VW Passat
    - Camry
    - Jaguar
    - Ford G6E
    - Malibu
    - Mazda 6

    You're all barking mad.

    Can't you see the obvious resemblance here:

    Its the kinda car that is gonna make people appreciate the awesome shape of the VY/VZ and the VE in its flared wheel arch glory.

    Its already showing in the 2nd hand car markets.(I've been watching VE and HSV prices in the past 6months.)

    The sales reps and company car lovers will all still eat em up cos they are the latest model, same old same old there.
    But the private buyers will be stand offish.

    Anyone got any figures on pre-orders or anything for the VF?
