    Question is, will it be the Riviera or a Regal coupe.

    Product for products sake is a poor reason for flooding the pipeline. Is there a purpose behind Buick, or is it just a dumping ground for "whatever" now?

    A bigger more comfortable coupe with AWD, that's what I want from Buick.

    With the demise of Pontiac, Buick is free to move into a sporty premium category and has shown to moving in that direction (i.e. Regal). Offering different body styles seems like a pretty basic choice.

    Frankly, when you consider how many models GM has been building there is clearly a lack of midsized FWD coupes. I have a friend looking to replace her 2dr. Grand Prix and there is nothing GM is offering similar to it.

    Re: Coupe Considered for Buick

    I dunno, a 255-hp Regal GS coupe, replete with AWD and a tastefully-executed interior, seems like a no-brainer, particularly at, say, $35,000.

    Re: Coupe Considered for Buick

    about time - there is no sporty lux coupe except for CTS coupe - and that is far too high in price point.

    GM needs something in the middle ground.
