G6 Coupe to be the 2011 Chevy Corsica?

A former co=worker of mine told me that they GM is considering bringing back the G6 Coupe as the 2011 Chevy Corsica. I looked online and I can't seem to find anything in regards to it.
I used to work with him for an auto supplier, that makes parts for the GMX380/381 program which is the Malibu and the G6 so he might have a bit more insight to that than I would as a former employee.

Maybe one day. They finally started to make some good looking cars again and GM had to axe them.

that's funny, just last night i was sitting at a stop light and i thought to myself.....this car sounds very simular to my beretta. i don't know about bring the 2 door back as the corsica, but i could see the beretta.

Dav3- i went from a CTS to my G6, my 07 GTP has the 3.6 that was used in the CTS's and i have to agree, make it rear wheel drive. Before my CTS was totalled i wouldn't back down from anyone, my G6....it's just not the same performance, plus i think i'm still gettting used to FWD again

Had a 07 GTP coupe, traded in for my GTI....

Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,

i agree with you, but it has a slightly simular exhaust note, granted very slightly. But no matter what, GM better not bring out a 2 door G6 and call it a corsica

Yeah Corsica's were always the butt of ridicule, and for good reason... if they come out with a sporty 2 door on the G6 platform, it better be a Beretta. At least those had some potential...

my beretta was the quad 4, it was a fun car, but man.......lots of issues. if GM decides to name it Lumina, i think i would puke even if they put the Z34 on it

I would hope they could do better than that with the front fascia on that Camaro, a little more of a sleek design.
