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

I know but you said they are launching the insignia coupe?

A new Calibra will never happen, Its just an idea on paper nothing more.

We'll quote that in 2011 :P

Translation of the above article:

Quote
Opel and GM Europe CEO CEO Nick Reilly, the arrival of a new
large Opel coupe confirmed.

As a major source inspritatie as the spiritual successor to the Opel
Calibration must be, in 2007, the GTC concept shown in Geneva.
The concept car had a strong 320pk 2.8-liter V6 turbo engine in the
to bottom, the same block recently made its way to the 9-5 and 9-4X
models has been found. The new coupe will however be more modest
engine fitted, using the series to direct

injected turbocharged engines in the Opel engine range has, which
new car about 15 percent less power than it should be
theoretical consumption of the Gran Turismo Concept model, says Reilly.

Opel Calibra deleted in 1997 from its model range. Of the model are
will total about 250,000 copies sold.

From all the info people have posted that is the general consensus.

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

:)

I agree JT, that has a much bigger resemblance to the current calibra than this new fat arsed version.

At least it will have some bloody reliabilty I guess.

How they could justify badging it as a Calibra is beyond me. There is no sign of any evolution from the old Calibra and Vauxhall are just climbing on the sales bandwagon to
punt a few more sales through the showroom. If they wanted to do it properly then they should look to the Mini and Fiat 500 to see how its done.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And I am not sure about the former.

if they re-modelled the monaro with a slightly lower powered engine 3L with turbo that would be sweet, but not the insignia that is a horrible looking car.

Agreed, to be honest I think GM missed a trick with the Monaro, this would have been a perfect opportunity to realease it as the new calibra, all it needed was some smaller engine variants and leave the v8 engines to go in the VXR8's.
