One day after reporting that General Motors has further solidified a product plan that relegates rear-wheel drive platforms to lower-volume specialty models, Inside Line is now reporting that the General has reconsidered. Sparked by the popularity of the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum as well as the positive feedback generated by the Solstice, this change of heart could lead to GM utilizing a "lite" version of its rwd Zeta platform. The Zeta's cost has prohibited its use in North America thus far, but a "lite" version could see production in an upscale Buick sedan, a revival of the Chevy Caprice and even the next generation GTO. If approved, these vehicles wouldn't appear on the market until at least 2010.
