Opel Insignia Grand Sport Could Get A Coupe Version

Back in the 1990s, Opel sold a mid-size coupe named Calibra. It was based on the Vectra A' platform, and it still has a loyal group of fans. Its return is often discussed, but a new ray of hope shines with the introduction of the 2017 Insignia Grand Sport.

Opel fans and other petrolheads know that the Insignia is the successor of the Vectra, which has been given a new name to underline the fact that the company’s mid-size model has changed so much from one generation to another.

With the second generation of the Insignia just revealed, the German company still has not announced any plans regarding another coupe based on its mid-size platform, but the possibility is still on the table. While the world is experiencing an SUV craze, which is demonstrated through the large sales of this body style in all shapes and sizes, some people still dream of a mid-sized coupe.

Volume automakers such as Opel could not afford the risk of developing a coupe model on their D-segment platforms while sales were plummeting because of the financial crisis started in 2008, but premium brands have always had a proposition in this segment.

This year is coming to a close, and Opel’s financial outlook is better than it has been in years, so fans of the brand have a shot of seeing a new Calibra in showrooms in the future.

Just like the first generation of the sleek coupe from Opel and Vauxhall, the platform from the sedan would be used as a base for the new body style. Opel has previously revealed concept vehicles that were mid-sized coupes, which only put gas on the fire in the hearts of Calibra fans.

Fortunately for them, the new generation of the Insignia is lighter than its predecessor, and there’s a chance that the German company will approve the development process of a coupe built on the E2XX platform from General Motors.
