How About a Quicky – Return of the Buick Regal GS?

Buick Regal GS

There are some cars at auto shows that just stand out as the preverbal “Nice Car”. They have a blend of styling, presence and overall appeal that targets the masses, not just one segment of the buying populous. Buick, has tried time and time again to do this with cars like the Regal, Lacrosse and Lesabre.

Here we see what looks like an entirely plausible Buick GS concept clad in a pearl white paint. The car itself is actually quite nice looking, that is however if they make it JUST LIKE THIS! You see what generally happens is that a manufacturer will introduce a car at a show… it’ll look great, as they will have chosen the best wheel and tire combo, paint, body treatments, etc. Then they’ll give us notice that it’s going to be put into production and we’ll all sit like lemmings waiting for it to materialize.

Then of course when it does come out, BLAMMO!! It looks nothing like the concept that everyone fell in love with. Well, here’s hoping that the penny pinching weenies over at Buick actually decide to build this car as you see it. It’s good looking, has a broad appeal and makes me thing back to the good ole’ days when Buick built performance cars. Hey Buick… how’s about building another Grand National or GNX? Whatcha think?

    This car is not a concept. It’s an opel insignia opc or a vauxhall insignia vxr. In europe you can buy one for 50000 dollars. If buick deside to build it (change the badge) it will be exactly the same!! V6 325hp. There are also other versions of this car 1,6 or 2,0 liter turbo engines starting from 20000dollars

    Why is it that every single auto journalist out there seems to beg for a new “GNX” — do you guys not remember what the GNX was? It was a special ASC/McLaren built upfit package to the Grand National (GN) — it was never a GM-built model. Only 547 GNXes were built.

    To suggest that they bring that nameplate out of retirement only to defile it by making a mass-production vehicle is completely incompetent and uncivilized. Now, if you want to beg for a GSX, that’s one thing…. but guys, please. LEAVE GNX ALONE!!
