Shouldn't it be origin Germany, made for USA?

I think you may be thinking of the Catera. The Cimarron was entirely America's fault.

I had read that the Cimarron was an "ingeniously relived Opel Ascona."

There were various other US models on the same platform, including the Chevrolet Cavalier and the Buick Skyhawk.

Well, that was strangely formulated...and it was in AUTO BILD KLASSIK, a top-notch German classic car magazine...

The J-cars were designed by both North America and Europe. The lead designer was from the North America division. Many of the mechanical bits were borrowed from the X-cars (Chevy Citation, etc.). Perhaps we should be asking if the Ascona should have US origin.

The US versions were released first, with the Chevy Cavalier, Pontiac J2000 and Cimarron starting in April 1981. The European versions were released in August.

From Auto News:

"The car sat on the new J-car platform, which also underpinned the Pontiac Sunbird and Cadillac Cimarron. Engineers from Chevrolet and Opel worked to develop a platform that would work in both Europe and the United States. Roger Masch, lead engineer on the J-car platform, said: "It was really more competitive in the compact car segment than the Chevette or the Nova or anything else" Chevrolet had."
