Opel GT Concept @ 2016 Geneva Auto Show

More fuel for the return of a new Opel GT rumor mill.


Carscoops; Opel broke the ice in the teasing game with the new GT concept less than two months before its official debut.

The study is referred to as "the next major step for Opel" and will introduce the brand's new sculptural design philosophy.

The company's CEO, Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann, stars in the first teaser, even though "You will see Opel with a fresh pair of eyes" is all he says.

A second teaser is said to be released on January 21 and full data on of the concept will be released on March 3, at the opening of the Geneva Auto Show.

The "GT" moniker was used by Opel on two several occasions: from 1968 to 1973, on a two-seater sports car inspired by a styling exercise shown three years earlier, and in 2006, on a roadster that was also sold as the Saturn Sky in North America and as the GM Daewoo G2X in South Korea.

MT article; Opel GT Concept for Geneva is an Ultra-Lightweight Sports Car

"And Opelís bosses seem to want to take the GT further. Unfortunately, as Karl-Thomas Neumann, Opelís CEO, admitted to Motor Trend, there is no suitable RWD platform in GM. This is a tiny car."

2200lbs and 145 hp would make it a Miata class car. I think the Miata is 2400? 2600? somewhere in that range. Still...1 liter 3 cylinder?
