    I can't help but admire how many top level executives in Germany are either PhDs or engineers.

    Some rumours say that it could be a new Opels poor man's Corvette, the GT.

    The sheer numbers of announcements of a new Opel GT is only comparable to doomsday predictions, so nobody should be too excited about it.

    Always had a soft spot for the Opel GT. Thought about picking one up as a project car a few years ago by got a MG Midget instead.

    Congratulations! Opel is getting its version of GM's heavy duty pickups.

    Some of the rumors I've seen say it would be based on the Astra. I'd never expect a FWD GT.

    I love this guy. Seems like he really enjoys what he does and is really invested in Opel.

    Nice FR-S chop. One has to wonder if this is somehow related to the development of the secret RWD V8 Holden sportscar?

    Opel would own the Gangsta Rap market in Europe with pimped HD pickups.

    I had a few French friends at a time, had me listen to and watch some French rap videos. All I could think about was how hard 50, G-Unit, and Brick Squad would ride on those fugazis.

    Yeah, it's from AutoBild and you know what I think about their photoshop skills. Love the idea about a V8 RWD car, but I doubt we will ever see that kind of car from Opel again.
