An image with a new Opel model, named the Enigma, which has recently hit the web, has started a rumor which is saying that this might be the successor of the Opel Calibra.
First of all we must thank the guys at autobild.de for the image posted above this article, and the info provided by our source is saying that the Opel Enigma might “replace” the iconic Opel Calibra, which was one of the most tuned cars ever. This almost sounds too good to be true and it actually is too good to be true, because the image has been drawn by a designer named David Cardoso, who says that the front end is coming from the Opel Astra GTC and the rear end is based on the Opel Insignia. Whether or not GM will make a concept car based on the Enigma is unknown for the moment, but we want it, we want a new car with the Calibra badge on it!
As a small reminder, the Opel Calibra, the Vauxhall Calibra as it was known in the UK, or the Holden Calibra in Australia and New Zealand, was a sports car engineered and produced by Opel between 1989 and 1997, and it was being assembled in Russelsheim, Germany and in Uusikaupunki, Finland, replacing the Opel Mantra. The Calibra’s actual successor is the Astra and the model came in a two-door coupe body style and a choice of three engines and three transmissions, with either front or all-wheel drive.
