The GO-concept debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show last month, FAW announced it will be made, production will start in 2012. Unlike other media reports the GO Concept does not preview the upcoming small Besturn B30. This GO is a completely different car that will compete with sporty machines for cool young people such as the Chery-Riich Z5 coupe The GO will not be based on an old Jetta platform but on something newer, likely from Mazda.

The FAW GO Concept previews a new small sporty sedan that could turn out to be the FAW-Besturn B30. Earlier spy shots showed a very different B30, rumors say FAW’s board asked for a complete redesign. However, the GO Concept does not carry the Besturn name, just the FAW name. First Auto Works, FAW, has three brands of their own: Hongqi (Red Flag), Besturn and simply FAW. It seems more likely that the GO is meant for a revival of the FAW-brand.
