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

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.

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.

Shame it bares NO resemblance to the original :-\

Would be interesting seeing the first new calibra owner sign up, can't see the tech threads all being about ICV's and CTS's.

the car looks clunky and over weight.

you would think they would have kept a few of the lines of the car, it just looks nothing like it. i really dont think this is going to be the new calibra! with astras you can see the changes take place through the models.

it just has no curves to it, and the lights are fitted to high and to deep into the wings.

also on the first and second photo it looks like someone has photoshoped those wheels on, and the top photo looks like a pug.

I HATE IT!

The first two pictures are of the New Astra Coupe, which is meant to be released towards the end of next year. The Insignia Coupe is also due for release, and its this car which is supposedly going to be badged as the Calibra. At least thats what the bods at Luton said a fortnight ago, I reckon I could get a decent discount on one  8)

There was an article in Auto Express around this time last year stating the rumour of a new Calibra, at that time it was rumoured that the new Astra Coupe was going to carry the Calibra name and keep it as an affordable car, the pics back then beared more of a resemblance to the original model.
Keep er lit!

I don't like it either. If they were going to make a new Calibra then it would look like this tasty concept
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.

Now were talking. I never seen this pic before but that is one stunning looking car. And you can see that it's a calibra. If this was the new calibra I'd have one in the drive in the morning
Theres no replacement for displacement.
