GS Birotor[edit]

  • Please explain to me why any reference to the GS Birotor and a lot of other stuff have been removed ? I think some discussion would be welcome before performing such major deletions. Hektor 01:22, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
The birotor stuff was removed by accident, I've replaced it now. Thanks for noticing. The only other stuff that's removed is something about the cars being left on a dock in Southhampton for a while, which struck me as very Anglocentric to include, which was unsourced, and which seemed difficult to work in effectively anyway ("and also, by the way, here's a story about some GS models in Southhampton"). I also removed the giant POV review of "driving the GS", because it was original research totally inappropriate for a Wikipedia article. --Jamieli 08:40, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. After careful reading and comparison, I think your changes make sense. I like to have something about the Wankel history of Citroën. I have written bits and pieces about it (M35, Comotor, the helicopter).Hektor 16:39, 31 October 2005 (UTC)


GS 'in the media'[edit]

I think that Jasper's car (Michael Caine's character) in the recent film 'Children of Men' is a GS estate with some extra body panels to disguise it - anyone else agree? If so, it is nice to see one on the road still in 2027! Ndaisley 15:44, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

I think that was a bigger citroen.

Yes. It's a GS allright. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Southwestsoul (talkcontribs) 18:45, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Actually, it's a Series 2 CX Break, not a GS. 95.180.18.182 (talk) 10:09, 8 February 2011 (UTC)Stefan

Prius??[edit]

How can one compare the GS with a Toyota Prius? That's a curse. Apart from that, the GS does NOT look like the Prius.

Same size and shape - which is useful information for those who have never seen an actual GS. Basically all cars now look like the smooth GS (if the GS had a slight kick up at the tail), so the "GS looks like..." description doesn't seem very helpful.66.77.124.61 03:30, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Too utilitarian[edit]

"...a hatchback layout was considered too utilitarian by CEO Pierre Bercot."

Hahahaha! That is awesome! Source, anybody?

It is strange to think considering the dominance of the hatchback and variants of the form today that in the 70s the car industry was very nervous about it. The Austin Princess being a good example of a hatchback design that was made booted. Useful historical point - be worth verifying. Spenny 09:02, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

"GS production abroad: The GS and GSA were built .... in Vigo, Spain. [18] Besides Portugal and the UK..."[edit]

Does anyone have a source for them building the Citroen GS in the UK, please? Vigo (north-west Spain) was (and still is for PSA) important, and Citroen certainly had a plant in Portugal where they might have assembled a few. But in the UK? They certainly were assembling Citroens in Slough in the 1950s and maybe early 60s until EFTA and the EEC got it together and more generally the Kennedy round tariff cuts made foreign assembly plants less of a necessity for non-British automakers importing to the UK. (Bad news for BMC...) But I really didin't think they were still making Citroens in the UK in the 1970s.[1] BUT, please tell me I'm wrong (with a source, if you don't mind). I accept enthusiastically that Wikipedia is meant to be a learning experience. Regards Charles01 (talk) 08:06, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
