    Cool concept.

    It's about time Buick styling turned around.

    The platform the car is built on will be production in 2007, it's mostly engineered by GM's Australian boys, and will be the basis of every large Holden, the redesigned GTO, the next Camaro, the redesigned Saab 9-5, and a host of other cars.

    RWD is back. :coold:

    SC430-ish.

    I think it's gorgeous. But DefBringer and mucky are right. It'll either never make it to production or it'll be shittified.

    it looks more feasible for production in its current form than this car did, too

    BUT, I don't think it would be a wise decision to make it with a "face" that is so easily confused with another GM brand :o
