Unlike the Monaro concept car of 1998, which relied on public suport to go into production, Holden says there are absolutely no plans to build the Efijy.

"It's all about fun," says spokesman Jason Laird. "We want people to be stunned by the car."

"There is no need to look into it for any sort of possibility of production. There is absolutely zero production intent.

"We did it because we could. We just wanted to do a fun show car. It's important designers have a creative outlet."

The body is made of fibreglass and underneath there's the chassis of the previous model (C5) Chevrolet Corvette.

"We had one (Corvette) lying around," says Laird. "So we decided to use it for the Efijy."

great custom hot rod, not so great in production :)

GM probably dumped 2mil or more into building that car (factoring time, press, G&A, etc) when they are struggling in other areas(production cars etc), and while this car is beautiful, it will do little if anything to get buyers into GM showrooms, which should be their chief worry right now.

Yeah, exactly, cuz who cares about returning the company to any kind of profitability? Never mind that the stock price is tumbling...never mind that they are a bellweather for the economy of this country...never mind that the rebates and the "employee pricing" screwed their customers. When I say that, think about if you bought a Tahoe or Yookon before that. Say you bought a model priced at $38-40K. All of the sudden, the "employee price" comes out at $30K. Even if you put down $10K when you bought it, even with 0% financing, you're going to be way, WAY upside down in that truck. Go to trade it in, and they'll give you less than $23K for it in 3 years. Great plan!! If I were a GM customer, which I'm not, I'd not be happy. And it's not just GM who screwed their customers with this, but they started it, and this post was about them, so I'm not singling them out.

Yes the employee discount price was higher than they would have sold all the vehicles trying to clear them like they normally do. They didn't make any money on it, but were better off doing what they did.

I always heard the people that made off the best were the ones that got 0% financing and a few rebates...
