Opel has confirmed the coming of a new coupe this week, just hours after reports of a new concept first surfaced online. The car will bow at September's Frankfurt Motor Show.

Dubbed 'Monza', the concept is named for Opel's small affordable coupe of the late 1970s and early 80s. This new one, however, introduces a powerful new style for the brand.

A production future for the Monza has not been confirmed, but Opel says the concept's styling will preview part of the company's new 'DRIVE!2022' strategy that will introduce a new look, and advanced new technologies.

Comments this week from GM executives Alan Batey and Steve Girsky also point to a more premium position for the Opel brand in the future.

As for the Monza, it remains to be seen what the concept will bring to Frankfurt, although Opel promises the coupe's design will preview new styling cues for the company's future models.

Shown here in a pair of shadowy but revealing teaser images, the Monza wears an evolution of Opel's current five-point grille design, flanked by slender new headlights above tall intakes.

We'll likely see more than a few of the Monza's elements feature in Opel's next-generation passenger range, but expect all of it to be toned down before production.

Reports suggest the Monza will be underpinned by the rear-wheel-drive Alpha platform that sits beneath the Cadillac ATS, boosting the concept's sports-car credentials.

And if that's true, we might also see GM's 237kW 3.6 litre V6 providing power for the Monza concept.

For now, we wait for Frankfurt.

In the meantime, Australian buyers can look forward to the local debut of Opel's Mokka crossover, Zafira people-mover and Cascada convertible.
