It was confirmed exclusively to the Detroit News by Toms Stephens, General Motors vice chairman of global design, that the Regal GS concept has been green lighted for production. It will most likely come with a 2.0 liter turbo charged 4 cylinder putting out 255 hp and 295 lb-ft to all four wheels through the torque vectoring all wheel drive system by Haldex. Thankfully we will probably get to manage that power with a proper six speed manual. Sadly there is the possibility that the concept’s awesome Recaro seats will not make it to production. Timing and volume were not given, though I would be bet we will see the GS sometime mid to late next year.
“Buick kind of lost its way. We built big, floaty, quiet cars — what our customers wanted at the time. The GS would be the next step, more performance-based,” Buick spokeswoman Dayna Hart said.
