2009 Vectra as the Newest Opel Flagship

Got the newest spy shots from the soon to be flagship of Opel? If not, take a break because those folks over at World Car Fans have captured the latest picture of what they're claiming to be the next Opel flagship – the 2009 Vectra.

Based on the May 2007 article from World Car Fans, General Motors’ European arm will be reducing the production of the Signum hatchback and the Opel Tigra Twin Top by the middle of next year due to unsuccessful and boring sales which is was quite far from their projected profit.

Those are the factors that lead the way for the production of the next generation Vectra sedan. Actually before, there were just hearsays but now, given the latest photos, no one can question that soon the vehicle will be released. The German plant already announced that customers will be expecting the said vehicle soon in dealerships. It would be entering production by the second half of next year.

According to the folks at the site that's for the fan of cars from across the world, the new Vectra shares wider and taller body to provide more space inside for the passengers and with a complete styling all along, plus the power that will be coming from a wider selection of new engines including a 200 HP 2.7 liter V 6 Turbodiesel and a newly developed 2.8 liter V 8 fuel engines. The said larger body is just a way for the model to cling to sales on the market and to have a better status on its competitor brands like Volkswagen’s Passat and the Alfa Romeo 159.

Other high-flying features that have been carried over from the concept car are the large grille, angular headlights and a pronounced boot line. Before the cars formally establish its sales towards the end of the year as a 2009 model, it should come off at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show. It was considered that the car will also substitute the present Saturn Aura sedan in the US towards the end of the decade. But prior to that, another concept car is thought to have been exposed at this year’s Frankfurt Show this autumn which is closer to the production version.

Seems to be a busy year for General Motors. Anyway, let’s all wish these guys good luck. After all, we hope to see more endearing car models coupled with promising features and attractive profit sales in dealerships.
