Well, as long as its got a Calibra name and looks like either of those and has the same impact as the original had at launch (looking so ahead of its time) I'll be buying one, gona start saving for the deposit now, the misses has given the go ahead and with vauxhalls lifetime warrenty, I would consider buying a brand new car, which was out of the question before. :-\

The Insignia Coupe is being launched, I've heard it will be badged as the Calibra.

When GM make an official announcement then i will believe it, but until then its all hearsay.

So it will be an Insignia with a Calibra badge!, if they are going to release a new Calibra it needs to be designed as such from inception to showroom, that is the only way it will ever do the original real justice, if they are just going to stick a badge on any of the new VX range they may as well stick it on the Movano

True, but wasn't the original Calibra basically a Mk3 Cavalier coupe?

No it just shared it's wheel base to save on production costs, there is no visual resemblance between the two apart from the dash board that is

What I'm trying to say is that the new car will probably be as close to the Insignia as the old one was to the Cavalier
