What will happen to Opel’s GTC concept, after the Geneva motor show is done? Opel sources hint to TheCarConnection that a 2009 model-year production date in Europe is likely, with sales beginning in late 2008. That's for Europe, where the Opel brand is a mainstay.

As for other brands, might the GTC also become a Vauxhall - or even a Saturn? Since the GTC is based on the Opel Vectra – as is Saturn’s Aura – it seems likely that the GTC might be considered for the Saturn lineup too. GM officials tell TheCarConnection that the GTC might indeed have a spot in the Saturn lineup, although they stress that the concept hasn't even been confirmed for production yet. But if the concept's reception at the Geneva Motor Show is any indication, GM executives are studying their options very closely.

As for Vauxhall? What, do we sound British? Those guys at Autocar might know.
