The Opel GT Concept is not dead

the-opel-gt-concept-is-not-deadPresented at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, the Opel GT suggested that Opel was going to return to sports, especially with a small propulsion coupe. A rumor quickly denied because Opel did not have a platform to accommodate the construction of this car. Pity.

The first idea would be to create a platform for a propulsion from a coin bank. “It’s a matter of cost. You can start from parts but if you do a lot of engineering this will not be financially viable,” Neumann said. The second possibility would be to partner with a partner to design a whole new platform. An alliance with the Chinese manufacturer SAIC, partner of General Motors, the parent company of Opel, would hold the rope in this case.

At Opel, we estimate internally that we still have two years before making a decision and that, after this period of time, the design will have lost its appeal. The whole question is to find a propulsion platform that could suit this craft. And as Karl-Thomas Neumann said “the question of the platform is a complication” even though several sources say that GM could conceive it. To be continued.
