Rumor: Buick Regal Coupe under ‘very strong consideration’

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Buick is doing what it can to break away from its image over real handling ad performance. LaCrosse is believed to have started well. The new Regal is proceeding nicely while it's believed that the GS is lagging behind.

But in a webchat earlier this week, Roger McCormack, Buick's product marketing director, told consumers that the Regal Coupe is under "very strong consideration."

Last May, there were reports about a coupe but it was divulged that the car would only be made until 2013 or 2014 at the earliest.

However, a coupe version of the Regal is expected to be a niche vehicle, assembled to raise profile and offer a status option within the brand. This formula is expected to be the ideal entry-level version to more performance as well.

From the early details of the Regal GS, which is slated to debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, it's anticipated that the Regal will have essentially an Opel Insignia in a Buick dress.

Opel is reportedly working on a coupe based on the Gran Turismo Coupe concept from 2007.

In a preview, it is believed that the Regal Coupe will offer just the right proportions, as it is powered by the all-wheel-drive 255-horsepower drivetrain from the Regal GS. A convertible model is possible. If this model is approved, it's likely to be based on the Opel underpinnings.
