    GM is feeling bad about the CSV's, so to make up for it, for every CSV derivative (there are 4 so far) they're offering, the brand gets a kappa! pontiac has solstice, saturn has curve, chevy has nomad, and buick has... the GT!

    i drew this without any particular brand in mind, and while it's really not very buick, it certainly wouldn't fit anywhere else in GM (i say that like it really matters&#33. i figure buick could handle a 2-seater kappa coupe and a 4-seater velite in its product mix.

    the ventiports suggest a V6, which i think could be wedged in. 3.6L VVT perhaps? this'd be a notch above solstice... more of a bargain crossfire than anything. i think something akin to the G6 sliding roof would suit it nicely. leather for the seats and dash... basically the velite interior for 2. dark exterior colours would work best i think... like with the ferrari 456GT. tried a spoiler but it spoiled the look, so no dice. light-handed chrome trim around everything. that's my vision anyways!

    yeah, 911 in the way the rear and windshield look. Front end looks like it is anti-aerodynamic.

    what saab? you might be right... but i can't picture any saab like that. or BMW. guess it's an unimaginative car AND name! as for aerodynamics... try a solara! was just having fun here. i figure a buick should have some presence. the production version will be a 2-door lacrosse!

    I'm not being critical. As a saab owner, I go for the upright windshield and the aero rearend. how about this:
