With the death of Pontiac and now Saturn, GM’s rear-wheel-drive based Kappa-platform has been left to die – until now. According to our friends at Jalopnik, DeLorean Motor Company is planning on using the Kappa-platform for its upcoming car.
“JZD always said that the best memories of his automotive career were at Pontiac, and that connection between JZD and Pontiac is probably one of the better known associations among car enthusiasts,” said James Espey, Vice President of the DeLorean Motor Company.
The company has released drawings of a new model based on the Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe. The move could put several hundred people back to work at the Wilmington plant.
