    Seeing Opel With Fresh Eyes: The Opel GT Concept is Coming

    Breathtaking sportscar concept to celebrate world premiere at Geneva Motor Show





    Rüsselsheim. It is only visible for a few moments in the first video but they are enough to create an appetite for more: Opel Group CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann announces the next major step for Opel – the GT Concept. With this, the company will launch the next step of the sculptural Opel design philosophy. “You will see Opel with a fresh pair of eyes,” promises Dr. Neumann. The concept car carries on the great tradition of the carmaker that is already made clear by the name: the Opel GT Concept is coming.

    In the film, a characteristic red detail is mirrored in the eye of the beholder – a first preview of a trendsetting concept that will celebrate its premiere at the Geneva Motor Show (March 3 to 13). The breathtaking and puristic sportscar expresses the continuous innovative strength and the new lifestyle of Opel. Dr. Neumann will reveal more on the newcomer in a second clip on January 21.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    If alpha based, we know the Avista coupe is making production.

    I think there will be strong similarities to the Avista coupe.

    Build them all.

    Wouldn't that be something if LGR were kept busy making Camaro and Camaro variants, (Avista, Holden, Opel GT), round the clock?

    I'm seeing one vs the other as Code vs Camaro.

    I hope after the reveal, we don't feel like this:

    Oh they would, no doubt about it but I think we are safe. I think the GT concept will be Astra sized like the Speedster was.

    Yikes. They should have thought longer and harder about using Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann in that video, with that concept. He comes over as very creepy - he looks like the type of German man you meet in a gay bar in Berlin who offers to take you home and wee on you.

    C-R-E-E-P-Y!

    Re: Seeing Opel With Fresh Eyes: The Opel GT Concept is Coming

    As much as I would love to see the Avista make production, I really think the coming GT Concept will be more in line with what Opel GTs have always been; small 2 seater sports cars and not the larger luxury 2+2 touring car like Avista Concept. An Opel version of Avista would be great but would definatly fit more in line with the old Opel Calibra.
