Buick Reatta Gran Sport

You know... you should apply for the job of designing the next Batmobile for the next Batman movie... I mean, those super-unrealistically-low greenhouses attached to extremely-high-beltlined bodies look very... Cartoonish, like Batmobiles. :D

Neat design but the Reatta name is about valuable as "Chevette". Call it Skylark or something else less tainted.

Oh, pul-eeze. :rolleyes: Most people don't remember the Reatta name and those that do remember a unique little Buick roadster. The only 'taint' to that name was the massive pricetag.

Agree wholeheartedly. The Skylark is far more "damaged" than a low production halo car could ever be. Especially one as nice as the Reatta. All it needed was more power and a lower pricetag. Well, RWD might have been nice too, but you must factor in the era of GM this car represents.

Eh.... I'd ratehr have a decent FWD '93 Skylark with a 3.1 than a 2-passanger car with FWD that would force me to pay "Corvette-money" insurance just because my carrier thinks 2-pass = sports car. <_<

I'm not saying a Kappa based Reatta would not sell, it would just not be my top choice for a name. Wildcat would be my #1 choice! And you know the idea of a Buick Kappa is a great one IMO.
