How quickly things change. In August 2013, Barack Obama was President of the United States, Kevin Rudd was Prime Minister of Australia (again), and the 430kW Gen-F HSV GTS launched as the most powerful HSV you could buy.
Three years and seven months on, and Donald Trump is America's Commander in Chief, Malcom Turnbull has the prime ministership (barely), and the GTS has been twice toppled by the 435kW GTSR and 474kW GTSR W1. So, has the now-humble GTS lost some of its significance? Hardly.
