There’s been talks about the next Opel Calibra debuting for quite some time now. The vehicle has been dead since 1997 and the chances for it’s revival were as well until a few years ago. Now, the mid-size coupe will be making a little of a comeback when the Calibra gets put back on the market in 2013.
The new Opel Calibra will take its design inspiration from the GTC Concept. In fact, the New Calibra will be nothing more than a two-door Insignia, but Opel needs it if they want to create a bigger name for themselves. Unfortunately, they will have to build about 30,000 unit a year before the program is even profitable.
A GM Europe HQ source told CAR: "We would feel a lot more confident about some of these projects if Buick, Chevrolet in North and South America and Saab were sharing volumes and risk."
The new Calibra will compete with cars like the Volkswagen Scirocco and Renault Laguna Coupe. Under the hood of the new model Opel we will most likely see a wide range of engines, both gasoline and diesel from 130 hp to 250 hp.
