Tesla Astra?

Opel/Vauxhall Calibra

6, Mar 2014

14 months ago I rendered the new Calibra based on the Cascada. Opel/Vauxhall has since then Monza concept, from which I’ve updated the original Calibra rendering with the Monza’s sleek shark-nose front, while making it a little less “cab-forward”. I wonder could this be closer to how the eventual 2015 Calibra will look.

Ever since they Opel launched the Insignia Country Tourer, I’ve been wanting to do the same for the Astra Sports Tourer. However, my renderings quality fails me this time. This could have been better executed.

There are many comparison between the Cascada and Audi A5 Cabriolet. So why not an OPC variant to fight S5 Cabriolet? Rendering the OPC out of the standard Cascada, the car gains new front grill and fascia, bigger wheels, side skirting and de-chromed stripe for the DLO.

Opel/Vauxhall Calais

Almost a year ago, Autocar reported that Opel-Vauxhall will need more flagship model positioned above Insignia to achieve an improved brand image. Here’s my suggestion, use the newly revamped long wheelbase version of Holden Commodore, otherwise also known as Holden Statesman or Holden Caprice. Badge engineering is what GM does best anyway.

Can’t remember where I read it but there could be a coupe variant of the new Cascada. I am not sure if they would, or should revive the Calibra name though.
