Grand National line of Buick Regal was originally launched back in 1982, and its production lasted until 1987.

    Very nice car. Hope they build it (with all three motor options) and keep the Buick tradition of having a stylish AND quick car. I see it being like an ATS-V, but perhaps a little less expensive. But in Buick tradition, still very well equipped and a lot for your buck!

    Looks like that POS GTO that was released. How long did it last, two years because sales sucked. GM needs to get over it’s vet. The 80’s Grand National smoked the vet and so should this one. Make this beast look like cars of old like the camero, mustang, charger, and challenger. All if those have sold well because of the look and they are as good as the old cars. Got an 86 T Type with the 3.8 pushing 600 HP. Still can smoke most vets for an old fella. Buick is making a mistake with this poor version of a classic.
