Pontiac's got a Kappa.
Saab's already working on a Kappa... maybe as the 9-X.
There's talk about Opel using a Kappa.
Cadillac can use the Kappa to compete with SLK/Z4.
I don't know if Saturn can use a Kappa in their lineup, but it would be a refreshing change from their current lineup.
Buick can use Kappa to revive the Riviera. But that's sketchy.
Chevy could use a Kappa... maybe in Sport-wagon format?
And I'm sure Holden could use one too.
I guess the only platfor that can't use the Kappa is GMC. :huh:

GM can take the Kappa pretty far. :laughbounce:

Hummer may be using Kappa as well, and the Curve is confirmed for production.

Cadillac wont use it, they are going upmarket, not down. Chevy wont get a kappa. Also the Kappa can only fit the ecotec engine.
LOL... a Hummer Kappa. :lol:

Cadillac could use it. it would have to be a modified Kappa. I don't know the dimensions of Kappa when comared to SLK or the Z4, even the TT. But say.. a Cadillac Kappa at $29K could steal market from SLK and Z4 and TT. Not to mention Caddy Kappa-V.
I'm sure the engine bay is tiny... but who would have thought an LS1 would fit in a CTS bay??

Just saying Cadillac doesn't compete with those mini-roadsers from Merc and BMW and even Audi. They're not exactly "down market" not like a 1-series or A-class.
