All New Daewoo Cimarron?

Even though GM Daewoo Auto & Technology (GMDAT) builds a variety of cars to sell around the world under a number of nameplates, they only sell four models on the home market. Rivals Hyundai and Kia offer five times that many models, including luxury cars. Fearing a further drop in overseas sales, the union wants GMDAT to broaden their line to boost domestic sales. Yahoo! Singapore says the union has a solution: revamp the design of "discontinued Cadillac models" and sell them in South Korea to produce "explosive sales." The union bosses didn't suggest what models they want to drive build there. But just think– this could mean the rebirth of the Cimarron or the Catera. OK, they're talking about the DTS and STS, but I mean, c'mon, really.

    Korea and some parts of East Asia do like soft-lux big cars... so this makes sense.

    A Daewoo Pacer would be awesome.

    Funny post, carlos.negros. But it's the Brits that sent us American Idol.

    actually, this strategy is quite common in korea among all the manufacturers. you still get older model japanese and even mercedes cars brand new and manufactured by hyndai, etc. some of them are pretty cool. they sell a version of the older boxy mistu montero with a diesel engine called the galloper. the older ones sport a prancing horse. you see lots of old nissan maxima and acura legend clones, too. i doubt gm would be stupid enough to rebadge the escalade, etc. in korea because gas is about three times as expensive as in the good ol' usa.
