Was stationed in Europe in the 90s and wondered why didn’t GM bring the Calibra to USA to directly compete with the Ford Probe, Mazda MX-6, Nissan 240SX, Honda Prelude, and the Mitsubishi Eclipse along with its Chrysler/Dodge clones? Turns out they wanted to, but through Saab. To me, this would have been a bad idea. To me, a car like the Calibra would have been a Pontiac or Chevy. At Pontiac it would have competed against the Grand Am. At Chevy they had the Beretta. They could have built it in a North America factory and changed some trim to match the brand. Such a shame it never happened. Now all the sports coupes are gone.
