The nameplate that adorned one of General Motors' European Opel division's most admired models returns after 30 years. Opel will sell a European version of the Saturn Sky, badged the GT, though this new car, unlike the coupe original, is an open-top roadster.
The GT will be sold in left-hand-drive only. There are no significant changes to the exterior styling to differentiate the GT from the Sky. Opel has replaced the Sky's 170-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder with a more powerful 265-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.
Opel claims the GT will hit 60 mph in around six seconds and run to a top speed of 143 mph. The GT will be built alongside its Saturn equivalent and the Pontiac Solstice at GM's Wilmington plant in Delaware, with the first deliveries due this time next year.
