The news comes from Motoring, after GM Holden Design Director Richard Ferlazzo, stated the studio will not move to a more fashionable location.

Ferlazzo made the comments at a function last week to reveal the latest vehicles the studio has been working on, where he said more information will be available next month on said vehicles.
