Looking at the new VE i realised where i'd last seen a simular car..... the proto Torana holden showed a few years back looks very close, may have been a tester for public opinion? that Torana was unreal...

Lights may differ, but look at spoiler, mirrors, door handles, rear shape and curves....

That was the whole point of the Torana concept, to show the public concepts being used in the VE Commodore

They would've got it VE away from the falcon lookalike comments...but i think its like most new cars... you have to see them in person to appreciate/hate them. 500Kw+ HSV Senator/R8/Grange? surely they will bring on new names with this one! Maybe a new post to toss a few names around..

But looking at it now...you might be right. It depends how you interpret it!

While the E-Series line-up will include ClubSport, Senator, Senator Signature and the long-wheelbase Grange sedan variants (alongside the VZ-based Maloo, the ClubSport R8, SV6000, Coupe4 sedan and GTO Coupe variants will be discontinued), HSV’s trademark GTS nameplate is not expected to return to showrooms for at least 12 months.
