    All-new, EPII-based Opel Omega

    With all the talk about GM unloading brands, I got to thinking: what would happen if Saturn died and Opel was brought over to take its place? I mean, all of their products are basically shared (minus the Outlook, but come on, it's an Acadia).

    But, in my case, I gave Saturn two more vehicles to work with - a large sedan called Vista and a large 3-row wagon called Scope. Where would those fall into place? They would become Opel products, but exclusive to the United States.

    Presenting the new Opel Omega - the flagship of the Opel US lineup.

    And minus the Aura, which is a G6 - and could have been this very Omega.

    I believe the Aura is (or was) a shared, reskinned product between Opel and Saturn - the Opel Vectra.

    Any comments on the actual drawing?

    The Aura has nothing to do with the Vectra. It is a reskinned product shared between the Saturn and Pontiac, and called a G6. Vectra is a very different car, although GM would want you to think differently.

    As concerns the drawing, it is nice, like most of your drawings. I would, however, love to see you start doing other perspectives too!

    I thought Aura shared more with the Malibu than the G6

    Most. Heh.

    I'm considering taking an art class (I still have one more year of HS left) to really nail the front/rear three-quarter perspective. Until then, I'm sticking with sides and instrrument panels.

    Interior is shared with the 'bu, but the roofline is borrowed from cousin G6. Vectra was just an innocent by-stander.
