I do not think any of these would replace the SS. SS is a four door car, the Corvette not only has 2 doors, but 2 seats only. I think a modern tank has a better visibility than a Camaro, plus the Camaro's back seats are not even suitable for bulimic cheerleaders.

I think Holden will rebadge an Opel or two...

Why can't Holden bring over some of the rear drive Cadillacs and rebadge them and change the looks a little? The Caddies are expensive here, but so are Holdens there.
