Vauxhall and Opel still have a love affair for its well-received GT concept, shown at this year’s 2016 Geneva Motor Show. According to Auto Express, the brand is “still looking at” a possible production run for the sports car.
“We’re still looking at it, but for production we have a very busy next few years and making a small coupé a priority will be difficult,” said Vauxhall managing director Rory Harvey at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
However, if you dig the looks of the concept, Vauxhall-Opel chief designer stated the look will start to be infused into future vehicles. Specifically, the flowing body and front grille are likely to “inform other production models,” said Adams.
Rumors surfaced on Vauxhall engineers’ attempts to build a production GT around the rear-differential of the all-wheel drive Mokka crossover, but a compact, rear-wheel drive gearbox is still necessary to complete the driveline.
It’s better to know this car is stuck in limbo, rather than completely written off as vaporware. Now, we urge Opel-Vauxhall to find the heart to build it. Please.
