01. The Brand
Opel Automobile GmbH is a German automobile manufacturer, a subsidiary of French automaker Groupe PSA since August 2017. From 1929 until 2017, Opel was owned by American automaker General Motors. It is one of the oldest carmakers in Europe, with the company originally being founded in 1862.
The first production of performance sports cars from Opel in the late 1960s was largely successful and created a solid following. Then a hiatus of 34 years ensued.
