    New Opel GT in the Works

    From CarScoops:

    A report from Autobild claims that a third-generation model is currently being developed, with the company's chief executive Karl-Thomas Neumann leading the charge.

    The new model could be based around the Opel Astra but, despite that, won't look anything like it - it will use the hatchback solely for its underpinnings. Additionally, it is stated that the new GT will take design inspiration from the sleek Monza Concept introduced back in late 2013.

    Sounds terrible. Leave the FWD sporty coupe to Chevy and make a Cruze coupe. Only 2 door Buicks I want to see are a new Riviera and a new Grand National, and ONLY in RWD...

    Or call it what it is, an Astra GTC. Calling it a GT is silly, when the GT was a RWD 2-seater.

    I assume if they are calling it a GT then it will be a roadster like the last model, they did not say it will have a back seat but that they are using the hatch for it's underpinnings. Will not be enough sales to sell this just as a GT so maybe we will get a version of it. maybe the 190 rises from the dead after all.

    there was a statement saying it will have some resemblance to the Monza concept, there also was a Buick concept the looked like the Monza concept.
