GM restarting RWD platform development
The architecture-formerly-known-as-Zeta is being considered for the new Camaro, a redesigned Chevrolet Impala, a Buick sedan, a Buick convertible based on the Velite concept (shown at right), a new Pontiac GTO, and the Pontiac Grand Prix.
As originally planned for the Zeta platform, the new architecture will be engineered by GM's Holden subsidiary. The first production version of the new architecture will debut in Australia later this year.
The most controversial issue facing GM execs will be choosing the first U.S.-market car to be built on the new platform. According to Automotive News, the choice will be made by mid-2006, for production in 2008 or 2009.
