Do you remember theChevrolet Code 130R Concept that was unveiled last year at the Detroit Auto Show? If you liked it, you’ll be happy to know that General Motors is considering a rear-wheel-drive sports car inspired by it.

The potential new model would target the new Toyota GT-86 sports car and its derivatives. Though it hasn’t been confirmed for production just yet, "it is on the wish list of the former Holden boss."

General Motors North America boss Mark Reuss confirmed in a recent interview that the car is on GM’s list and that indeed it will be "a great entry" for the company.

A production version of the 130R would be based on a shrunken version of Cadillac’s freshly-developed Alpha rear-wheel drive platform. Reuss did not provide any other details on this possible car, but did confirm they will try to keep it as cheap as possible.

A final decision on such a car will be made in the upcoming months, so stay to see if such a car will really happen!
