Bob Lutz is at it again, telling Drive.com.au that he would love to see a Commodore-based sedan back in America as a Chevrolet. Or, to use the quote-machine's own words:
As if you needed any reminder, GM is introducing the Chevrolet Caprice PPV as a law enforcement-only model this year, and naturally there's rumblings of a civilian version or a re-reborn Commodore version being offered sometime in 2012 carrying the Chevy SS moniker. Despite our love of all things G8 (dead or not), we'll believe it when we see it. Yet again."If we can pull that off and we have the next generation Commodore in as a police vehicle then we want to take a look at reintroducing a civil version as a high-end Chevrolet. Because when you get down to it the thrill of high performance driving is unmatched by anything that doesn't have rear-wheel drive, bags of torque and a nice transmission. So there'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."
