production of the Opel GT Concept undecided

production-of-the-opel-gt-concept-undecidedAs our British colleagues from Autocar explain, Opel does not lack the envy. But there is the problem of the platform. “It’s a car we love and the public loves, so we really want to produce it. The question is to find the right approach, so we are working in different directions. But the platform is a problem, “admits Karl-Thomas Neumann, CEO of the German manufacturer.

If the propulsion architecture of the concept was preserved, two possibilities exist for the constructor: the first is to create a platform from a bank of coins. “It’s all about costs; You can of course start from parts, but if there is much engineering and adaptation to anticipate, it is no longer viable financially, “admits Neumann.

So, the German manufacturer is looking for a partner who would have this platform and could provide or share it, while building his own version of the coupe. Research that could lead Opel on the side of MG and specifically its Chinese owner SAIC. It would be a boon if we want to see the Opel GT in a concession in 2018.
