Rumor Mill: Saab's New Sportster to Share Platform with Opel OPC

Reports of Saab's upcoming new sports car (coupe? roadster?) have so far been wide off the mark. While an executive of the GM division recently denied rumors Saab would get a version of the Solstice / Sky roadster franchise — once a scoop on which much of the past month's smart money had been bet — the Saab experts of Trolhatten Saab now cite an Edmunds report indicating the Swedes will look to German sibling Opel for inspiration and hardware. The new Saab, which will reportedly debut at next year's Geneva showm, will ride on the front-wheel-drive platform of the new Astra OPC coupe unveiled revealed in Geneva earlier this year. Got that? No Solstice. OPC. Learn it, live it.
