Chevy Looking At “Four-Door Corvette” For U.S.

Bob Lutz: Chevy Looking At "Four-Door Corvette" For U.S.

 
 

"[T]he thrill of high performance driving is unmatched by anything that doesn’t have rear-wheel drive, bags of torque and a nice transmission." That’s why "Maximum" Bob Lutz thinks the Holden Commodore could bring the U.S. a "four-door Corvette."

In addition to Reuss’s comments yesterday on a new El Camino, Lutz went on to tell The Age "[T]here’s a possibility of a premium Chevrolet sedan that would be sold in limited numbers. Think of it as a kind of four-door Corvette"

For reference, the upcoming Chevy Caprice PPV is based on a longer Zeta platform than the Commodore and Lutz is talking about a version based on a newer and slightly shorter platform — think Pontiac G8 GXP for Chevy.

As long as it isn’t actually a four-door Corvette but a Chevy by another name (we think just Chevy SS) with an awesome LS powerplant we’re extremely interested, too.
