GM working on second-generation Zeta sports cars

According to an Australian publication, General Motors has begun engineering work to keep its Zeta family of rear-wheel-drive sports cars competitive by keeping the architecture’s planned lifecycle to 2020. Both, the new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro and the Pontiac G8 use the Zeta architecture.

Both vehicles were engineered in Australia, which is GM’s global development center for volume-brand rear-wheel-drive cars. The Pontiac G8 is built alongside the Holden Commodore Zeta while the Camaro comes from Oshawa, Ontario.

GoAuto┬ásays that the second generation of vehicles from the Zeta family will debut in 2013. The publication said that the new Commodore will arrive with a new fuel-efficient engine lineup and reduced weight. We’re guessing the same will go for other Zeta based cars.
