    It's fun to laugh at the past. Though much like then, we've got no damned clue what the VF will look like. Guess we're waiting till what... 2014ish?

    I'm told that the VF will appear at the end of this year (around november), however common opinion suggests a 2013 release.

    The November wheels magazine cover has what is considered to be the closest looking thing to the production car, out of all the images going around.

    If what I am told about it is true, I might be moving to an auto V8 when it comes out :)

    Countless threads about rumors of this happening, a solid source believes a turbo 6 is on the cards but displacement will be of the smaller kind; to ultimately help fuel economy I think. I also believe if the Falcon really does continue its plans to turn it into a turbo 4 cylinder, Holden will have to match it somewhat in the battle for fleet buyers.

    GM can indeed produce a FI 6, they proved that with the custom twin turbo sidi camaro they made for Jay Lenno. I just think the cost of it is what's keeping it on the drawing board and out of the factories.

    a turbo 6 could also refer to a VM Motori turbo diesel... :D You never know.

    I doubt i will buy one, it will still be built like ****. Sadly no Govt. handout will ever be able to fix the problem.

    The VF turbo 6 was already a guarantee like a year ago wasn't it?, I"ve read in plenty of places that it's going to be a 3 litre turbo.

    Holden could probably lose sales on v8's if they brought out a turbo 6. Ford made that mistake..

    they won't bother turboing it just for HSV....HSV take the already made engine and tweak it...not get a full engine just for themselves.
