Opel Manta

Opel Manta successor is under consideration

July 3, 2015

The Opel Manta was a classic sports coupe that was released in 1970. It had a life of two generations, after which, it was replaced by the the Opel Calibra in 1989.

Almost three decades after its production ceased in 1988, Opel is considering a successor for it, as per a report from Autovisie.

When asked by the Dutch publication if such a successor is being considered, Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann, first didn’t say yes, but then later did reveal that the company is looking at such a model seriously.

This is no confirmation to a modern-day Manta or Calibra, but it’s at least, an indication that the company is mulling a two-door sports car seriously.

  1. Opel could not do a better car than a new Manta. I have been the owner of two or them (1972 and 1974 Manta Luxus. Both were supurb automobiles. I would love to have a third.
