According to motoring.com.au the Ford Falcon and the Territory may be dead.
In the end, it really shouldn’t be a surprise simply because the sales figures say that we aren’t buying them. We already know that the new VF Commodore from Holden will most likely be the last Commodore ever as customers move to smaller more fuel-efficient cars.
Production is rumored to stop on October 2016 for all local production.
An announcement will be held later this morning apparently and when that does go live, we will keep you updated!
Meanwhile, are you sad to see the Ford Falcon stop production?
Update: It’s official, Ford, following over $600million of losses over the past 5-Years. All local production will stop by October 2016 with Ford commenting that imported cars are profitable.
So there you go. Of course we’ll be following this up and taking a look at what this means for local industry and our market!
Update 2: We reached out to Ford Australia about the future of their involvement with V8 Supercars and here’s the response we got below:
@ashmansays Motorsport is important to FOA, we’ll work with our partners to evaluate the impact. Stay tuned!
