The Opel Calibra hasn’t been in showrooms for almost a decade, but with the unveiling of the Opel GTC concept car there’s hope that the Euro coupe may make a return. Though it’s yet to be confirmed for production, a spokesman from Opel revealed that management is keeping its options open and that there is a gap in the market left by the demise of the Monaro coupe.

Engine choices would remain the same as the four-door Vectra replacement, which means there’ll be three petrol variants ranging from 1.6L to a 2.8L V6 flagship. According to AutoExpress, there’ll be several diesel options including a high-performance turbo version and new ecoFLEX biofuel models should the car be given the green-light.

The four-door production version of the GTC is due to hit showrooms by the middle of next year, and is expected to be followed by the arrival of an estate variant in 2009. Beyond that, the path is open for the new Calibra sports coupe to roll in.
