GM's Midsize Rear-Drivers Due in 2010

Hey kids, it's time to start those drifting lessons. A report from the Line that is anything but external says new rear-drive midsize cars from GM are on the way. General Motors will launch a range of such cars based on its new Alfa platform in late 2010, including the next Pontiac G6, Cadillac BLS and a Saturn to be named later. Alpha uses parts from the Kappa platform that hosts the Pontiac Solstice et al., with a dash of the larger Zeta platform (Pontiac G8) thrown in. Inside Line also reports the new, rear-drive Cadillac BLS may be sold in the US, with a base price in the "high $20,000s." (2003 G6 concept pictured.)
