My chop for a 2011 Chevrolet Caprice passenger car. This automobile actually exists in very similar form, but is only sold in Australia and the Middle East. So far.
C H O P — This Chevrolet Caprice is soon to be introduced in the United States. For realz! BUT, and there is usually a 'but' in everything, it will only be available for use as a police car. It seems odd to go to the trouble of certifying a car for sale in the States and not sell it to the public, but that's the case for this car. I can only assume that the final price might be too high for Chevrolet's 'usual' market, as it would probably have to be sold for $42-50K. IF you enlarge the image above, you can see that at least in the Middle East, this Chevy comes with a rear seat DVD video system with monitors in the rear headrests, a pretty nice touch. I can only assume that this car will be subsidized heavily for the police fleet market to make it affordable for American communities. A slightly shorter version of this car/platform was recently sold in the US as the Pontiac GTO, and was withdrawn after a few years due to low sales and ultimately Pontiac's demise as a marque.
When I heard rumors of this police car coming to the States, I created this luxury version for well-heeled Bow Tie buyers, adding more trim along the rocker panels with darker rocker panels to make the car seem lower and longer, and I added full-width taillights with some extra chrome too. Full width taillights are not necessarily a Chevy styling cue, although some smaller Chevys have used it before, but I felt that the entire car was not very Chevy-like, so I went with what I thought would look good regardless.
The actual upcoming United States domestic market Caprice in police-car trim. I think this might be the first time that a police-car will be sold in the United States without a related passenger car on sale as well. You can read a bit more about it in today's Autoblog here.
U P D A T E — An anonymous comment below corrected this post. The last version of this platform sold as a Pontiac, a short wheelbase version of this Caprice, was the G8, not the GTO. The GTO was an earlier coupe version of the Australian Monaro coupe. Thanks, Anonymous!
