Chevrolet will get rear-drive BMW-fighter, not Pontiac
Previous rumors said that the GM’s small rear-drive Alpha platform will be used by Pontiac to build a BMW fighter, but according to Motor Trend, the ones who will benefit from the rear-drive BMW-fighter will be Chevrolet.
The Alpha platform is used for models like sub-CTS-size Cadillac, crucial to the brand’s European offensive, but GM needs to build a volume car off the platform to make it pay off, and the car will be a Chevy sedan.
Also, starting 2013, the Solstice and the Saturn Sky will be moved from Kappa to Alpha. Motor Trend also says that GM might shorten the Alpha platform to serve a two-seat sports car.
It should look quite similar to the Vauxhaul VXR8:
