    Not going to happen,

    For one, the price will be very expensive compared to the current Insignia range - does say it will compete with BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C 63 S.

    Be impressed and surprised in the current PSA situation if this rolls out.

    Talk of PSA buying Proton as well, which would include Lotus - Vauxhall and Lotus back together under one umbrella, dreaming of a Lotus Insignia with 500bhp...nice!

    Did GM not plan to close the Holden operation in Aus? Can't see PSA doing anything differently. They don't have a positive outlook for halo cars. They binned the RCZ, the only decent 'performance' model in their inventory, before they could realise its potential.

    with the PSA taking over Vx/Opel, I think we should be happy if we just get an Insignia GS VXR to replace the old one!

    Holden manufacturing stops - but the brands are still sold in Aus as branded GM products (Assuming they will now be all Opel/VX).

    if the lotus insignia has to be like the lotus omega it has to have at least 700 bhp. because in its time it was te most powerful in its class.

    I do think the VXR brand has had its day now unfortunately, but its not the end of fast performance Vauxhalls. Peugeot is back on form with the 208 GTi and the 308 GTi's 'By Peugeot Sport' and Citroen has the DS Performance brand, so its not all doom and gloom.
