RUSSELSHEIM, Germany — The Opel Monza Concept, which is said to represent a "vision of the company's future," is being teased ahead of a world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show.

The teaser photos show a low-slung car with a sculpted hood, a coupelike roofline and narrow headlights.

No details were provided about a revival of the Monza nameplate in production form. The teaser images show the car with Karl-Thomas Neumann, Opel CEO. A YouTube video — in German with no English subtitles — also previews the concept.

"The Monza Concept pays homage to the seminal Opel Monza Coupe, built between 1978 and 1986," said Opel in a statement. "The original Monza was the first car on the market to feature a digital dashboard display and the Monza Concept continues this innovative theme. It introduces groundbreaking technologies for future infotainment and connectivity possibilities, showing how next-generation Opel cars will address the needs of a closely connected and sharing society."

Opel says the concept shares similarities with the Monza fastback sold in the 1970s and '80s, with its large glazed surfaces and a low beltline.

Powertrain specifications on the concept were not revealed at this point.

Edmunds says: While Opel is not promising a return of the Monza nameplate, the concept underscores the brand's desire to move upmarket.

    Just when I thought there'd be no new CTS coupe... look at that front end and picture it with an egg crate grille. Hmmm. looks a lot like the 2014 CTS sedan, doesn't it??? There are 3/4 shots on the web that really show the similarity.
