Buick Regal Debuts November 12th

PONTIAC06, isn't it funny a lot of us want a coupe, but there IS no Insignia coupe, except as a hot concept car. Just like the Coupe60, GM dangles cool stuff and then snatches it away.

Drives me crazy. I wish they would build something they show even if only to appease us enthusiasts. I know that if they produced that coupe as a Buick I wouldn't even think twice about signing on the dotted line...I wouldn't care if it had a 4 speed auto and seats made out of concrete...

They tried that once already:

Sure, and I liked it too, but it was an expensive vehicle with a very limited market...A Buick Regal Coupe could be sold in all markets that sell Buick or Opel/Vauxhall. That's a significantly larger market, plus a midsize coupe appeals to WAY more people than say a two seat convertible pickup...

Also, I'm sure alot of people wouldn't consider a midsize FWD Buick an enthusiasts car, but it is a compromise I would make where-as the sedan is a much harder sell...

So much hype for a car I've already seen.

Have you seen it in person? 99% of the target market haven't. It's a new model announcement.
