New Vauxhall Calibra 2010/2011
« on: November 25, 2010, 16:34:08 PM »
The New Vauxhall/Opel Calibra is on its way...or so it would seem!

ClubCalibra are excited to announce that a new Calibra model is on its way to restore the Vauxhall/Opel's sporty heritage! We have no specific details at this stage but here are the latest articles reporting the Calibra's return!

Please note: These articles were published only days ago!:

From AutoExpress...

Some have said that this is old news, prior reports were rumours but we believe that is has been confirmed that the new Calibra will be in production from 2011.

Photos may well not represent the new Calibra but they were supplied along with the AutoExpress article.

Me and it could still happen ;)

Makes me laugh to see people desperately clinging on to a hope  ;D

Whatever the photos were it is a nice looking car.

Don't think it will ever happen but I did say a few weeks ago that the insignia as a 3 door could be a replacement for the Calibra and people laughed at me....... Well?

I hope this doesn't go into production man. It'll be like when the Sex Pistols reformed, or when they re-made Clash Of The Titans. Just ruins the legacy.
Women are like parking spaces. All the best ones are taken, and sometimes if no ones looking you have to stick it in a disabled one.

Well the new Scirocco hasn't harmed the legacy, its a really popular car by all accounts.

Come on guys, lets be a little more positive - at least it sustains the name 'Calibra' and will bring us some new members!

Vauxhall have to try and sell as many cars as possible. Simple as. If the legacy of the Calibra (same as ford with the Capri) helps them make money in a dying new car market then why not.

There is not much difference with the corsa being remade, astra in a new shape and the same with the vectra.

People will try and defend the legacy of a certain model of car but let's face it if they decide to build it I would probably get one.

i love it to dude.  Its just the only similarities i can find with old and new is the shape to the side windows.  I know the picutres might not be accurtate to the model released.  But it is a sweet looking car but i wouldnt have named it calibra

rip the shell off the new one and stick the original calibra shell on instead, then you might have a car that keeps people on this site happy without breaking down ;D
