Tiburon??? Never drove one, but I assume it was a wet noodle in terms of structural rigidity. Even Porsche ain't gonna be able to do much w/ that....

Edit: a web search actually indicates that the Tiburon had greater structural rigidity than then-M3. So maybe Porsche just didn't want them to reverse engineer anything worthwhile....

Nicely done bodykit, but too bad we don't get the V6 in Europe (so far)

No surprise; the Regal gets touched by the Avenir wand.

I wonder if the only real upgrade will be the seats, since that's the only interior bit pictured. A shame, since all of the interior materials could use an upgrade....

I wonder how long GM is stuck buying Opels because the Regal is a terrible seller. They really don't need a sedan smaller than the LaCrappe. It really is unfortunate that they did not build the lovely Avenir and the handsome Avista.

US sales of the Regal don't really matter. It's China that's the main market for this car. GM simply offers it in the US so they have something to plug the gap at the bottom of their sedan range.

Buick isn't a brand that people naturally think of first when car buying.

The Regal TourX is a a nice design but.....

Buick's adverts are "not my fathers Oldsmobile" style and content.

They wont bring in buyers. Honestly I can't even think of where the nearest buick dealer is. Invisible.

I know exactly where my local Buick dealer is, but it's obvious they are more intent on selling GMCs.
