I think its just a photoshop but its a cool idea. I wonder if 450hp is actually attainable with GM'* new 3.6L VVT.

looking good , if its true...

may be the proto will be at 450hp, i doubt theyll release it at 450hp, unless they are 100% sure about reliability.

if people are able to boost their street driven eagle talon , eclipse, laser to 400hp or more,
why not a V6.

Hmm I have seen it and posted it on C&D forums... I like it but ummmmm coming from Buick, kinda doubt it! Still sweet none the less, and they actually could build this beast!

i dunno i think gm might ruin the GN name. for it to work correctly with the history of the gn they would have to take a w-body and use that as a platform but they need to make it rwd which they could do.. but it seems to me the current car trend is to use old name but mix old with new styling. so they would need to make a turbo v6 which gm could and probly will do if they try to make a GN again but i think they will save money and skimp on doing it right and will make a cool car but probly hurt the gn name and real gn owners probly wont all be happy.
but if gm can do it right , then more power to them.

gm has turned buick into a boring old people ultra quiet cars brand. They're not gonna rebadge a gto and call it a buick..

besides the new gto'* are due for 2007

Technically, according to that logic, that would mean Bonneville'* heritage has been ruined since 1987, when things went FWD.

It is a GTO under all that photoshop...... and yes Buick is an "old persons" car right now..... that said.... I don't believe that GM is going to bring the GNX back.
If they do... I'm sure they'll butcher it.... do we really want that? no
