Bringing back retro

With American industry trend to make remakes from golden age of American car industry, do you think that Europe industry will follow? We have seen Opelís GT 2006 already, do you think that other manufacturers will follow American trend?
Beside those speculations, I would want you to post your visions pictured if you have done anyÖ

This may come as a surprise to you, but the first major manufacturer to build a high volume vehicle that catered to the retro crowd was Volkswagen with the New Beetle. Last time I checked they were still a European company.

Other than the the more exotic companies(Porsche, Ferrari, etc.), I see them making designs that are more futuristic, and honestly, I think that the styling in European cars peaked 3-5 years ago.

As far as the cars we see from Europe in the states, I say it's only getting bigger, heavier, and more powerful from here on out. With the exception of Lotus . I think that is pretty much everyone's trend.
