GMI Goes Inside: GM Prototyping Stages
GMI goes through the phases of GM development.
September 29, 2010
By: Nick Saporito

Recent spy shots of upcoming General Motors products have spurred a lot of debate here on GMI. From the recent shots of the “Cadillac ATS mule” to last week’s Camaro Convertible shots, confusion and debate sets in every time a spy shot is posted. Debate about what the vehicle is and how close to production said vehicle may be are the most prevalent conversations. GMI has put its sources together to generate a detailed account of each vehicle prototyping stage GM products go through before they can arrive at dealership lots.

After initial engineering work the first stage an upcoming GM vehicle goes through is the “mule” stage. During this stage they typically take a donor car and strip it of most of its components and then refit the car with components for the new car. In some cases they have to modify the body of the vehicle to fit the components of the new vehicle. Mules are always hand-built units intended for early pre-development and occur nearly a year in advance of more... [Read More]

Zeta Update: Chevrolet Sedan, Premium Zeta In Development

Zeta Update: Chevrolet Sedan, Premium Zeta In Development
New GM management highly in favor of more Zeta products.
September 27, 2010
By: Nick Saporito

In June GMI published that General Motors was looking into providing the Cadillac brand with a true luxury flagship sedan, but the program was not yet approved. Since June GM has solidified plans for more rear-wheel drive Zeta products, including a Chevrolet sedan coming in 2012 and an all-new Zeta platform called “Premium Zeta.”

Earlier this month GM Holden revealed the revised Zeta-based Commodore lineup. The refreshed Commodore is going to serve as the basis of an all-new Chevrolet product for the 2012 model-year. The sedan has been dubbed “SS Sedan” internally, though it does not have a name at this time.

The car will be imported from Australia in limited runs and will serve has a high performance sedan only. GM does not intend for the car to sell in high volumes. Sources state that the car... [Read More]

The Legend of Eldorado: 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe
After All This Time, Has Cadillac Found the Way Back to the Gold Standard?
September 21, 2010
Words: Alexander Villani
Shots: Adam Bean

The story goes, that tucked away deep in the heart of Central America is a city of gold, and for years explorers poured in from Europe to search for this lost city, only to never find it. In 1952, Cadillac brought the mythical name into the automotive world to celebrate its "Gold" anniversary, and from that point forward, the Eldorado name became one of the highest models available at Cadillac. The Eldorado became an instant classic, and a styling icon for most of its life from its beautifully sculpted chrome bumpers, through the elegant tail fins, through the 70's massive hooded land boats, the Eldorado coupe was one of the most beautiful cars on the road. The car was Americana molded into sheet metal, chrome, and glass. But just with everything else automotive related, by the time the 80's arrived, the road to this gold standard was lost, and the Eldorado became another vehicle that blended into the car-scape. Several attempts were made to rediscover... [Read More]

GMI drives the 2010 Saab 9-5 Aero

Could this be the white knight that reawakens Saab?
September 16th, 2010
By: Carl Malek

During GM's massive collapse in 2008 Saab looked like it would join Pontiac and Saturn in the graveyard of axed automotive brands. Sales were slumping, GM was ready to pull the plug on its investment, and for a small group of automotive fans, it looked like the death bells were tolling for a Swedish brand that was once known for it's quirky spirit and trademark turbo engines.

Amidst all this chaos was the first generation Saab 9-5. A luxurious 13 year old relic that stood no chance against competitors from BMW Mercedes and Audi. A slight refresh in the mid 2000's did little to hide the cars age from consumers and competitors. With Spykers purchase of the Saab brand comes a brand new 9-5, but can one of the last cars designed during the GM years help Saab resurrect itself as a legitimate contender? Lets hop in and find out.


The first thing a prospective buyer will notice is the... [Read More]
