The 2010 Regal is already a reality and selling in China, where Buick has a large interest and competing there with sporty likes of Audi'* A4/* and Opel/Vauxhall'* Insignia VXR.



I would get real exited if this GNX came to the US in '11. Looks ultra sexy and packing a 500HP+ engine GM seems happy to be doing lately with high end sport models would be awesome.

That'* not a bad looking car. If its packing the 500+ ponies on top of, it makes it that much more appealing.

It would be atleast a 12 or 13 model. They would have to sit on their thumbs for awhile to see how well the regal did

Just looked at your post link BP. It'* a bit different styling than the Chinese version. The 2.0 Turbo makes me want to cry. LOL

Comparing the two, the front fascia is different. I'm sure the rear fascia is different as well. Same mirrors, lights, etc...

I don't get why GM America is so hesitant to take design chances. The front end differences on the two are day and night. The Chinese version drips with testosterone. Caddy is taking the plunge. Time for Buick to "Pony Up"
