2013 Opel Calibra in the Works
Details are still in the early rumor stage at this point, but Car Magazine Online reported that such a model has high chances to make it to production in the upcoming years. The car could be based on the GTC concept car revealed in 2007 but it might be developed using Insignia's platform.
The final product could be easily considered the coupe flavor of Insignia and might be also sold with a right-hand drive configuration developed by Vauxhall.
One thing worth mentioning is that the future Opel Calibra may become a global product, as some other GM brands, including Chevrolet and Buick could borrow the project and launch their very own rebadged versions in various parts of the world.
"We would feel a lot more confident about some of these projects if Buick, Chevrolet in North and South America and Saab were sharing volumes and risk," a GM Europe insider told the aforementioned source.
Still, nothing's sure at this time, as Opel is now experiencing one of the most difficult transition periods in its history. The company recently finalized its 5-year product plan which, according to Nick Reilly, Opel and Vauxhall boss, is supposed to bring the German manufacturer back in business.
