    well, not quite. the free lance designer Kris Horton. the guy who did the ever famous 5th gen camaro (<Click) rendering thats floating around the net made this in hopes that GM will get an idea and possable save Buick from the chopin block.

    its based off the zeta/monaro chassis, you can kinda see it the rear windows. at first glance i was all.. :ugh: , but after thinkn about the 87 GNX i noticed the bump in the hood from the grill and the scoop, the shape of the head lights and grill, taillights have the bar though the middle and the reverse lights on the inside, and of course the fender scoops.. while its not a direct copy it defintly feels like a GNX. over all im still kinda on the fence on this thing but i think it would be cool. although they were talking about having a LS2 in it but i think it should be a Turbo V6, like the old ones? but thats just me..

    i saw it in my new Popular Hod Rodding thought you guys would like to see.

    *edit* kinda looks like a RX8

    Wow...that is hot. :eek:

    I would drive that. :)

    EDIT: It does look a lot like an RX-8 though, only less ricey and a lot more classy. :bowdown:

    Don't tease me. I love Buick. It would be great if they'd do this. It might save the company, but I don't think they have the balls or the money to do it.

    Sad but true, my grandma always drives a Buick.

    Although I think her latest one would make a sweet neo-sled.

    Nice but call it a GSX if you are not going to put a Turbo V6 in it. GN = Turbo V6, GNX = Turbo V6, GSX = V8
