News: Opel will show a concept called GT at the Geneva Auto Show

Opel has published a brief teaser video that previews a new concept car called GT.

As is often the case, the video simply confirms the concept’s existence and it reveals absolutely nothing about it. However, an earlier report published by German magazine Auto Bild suggests the GT will be billed as a heir to the coupe that was introduced in 1968 (pictured below), not as a successor to the 21st century GT that was also sold as a Saturn Sky in the United States. The GT concept will allegedly borrow a handful of styling cues from the Monza concept shown in Frankfurt in 2013, and it will usher in the design language that will influence all of the car maker’s models in the coming years.

We’re taking this with a grain of salt, but Auto Bild believes the GT concept has already been given the proverbial green light for production. The magazine’s sources claim the coupe will land in 2018 to commemorate the original GT’s 50th anniversary.

We’ll have a better idea of what to expect when Opel publishes additional information about the GT on January 21st. The coupe will be fully unveiled online in the weeks leading up to its official debut at the Geneva Auto Show. Stay tuned, we’ll bring you full details about the the company’s next concept and live photos of it straight from the show floor starting on March 1st.
