Description: Buick has been doing quite well lately. Considering that just a few years ago their lineup consisted of cars that appealed mainly to the over 65 crowd, the brand has managed to turn their image and ca...

If Buick was serious about changing their image, they should have rebadged the Opel OPC. I still can't believe they didn't. What a missed opportunity...
Ethan Amo May 13, 2012
This will be interesting..
Gianni Vega May 14, 2012
@David, they aren't looking to make a 20,000 RWD drift car for high schoolers. When they say a younger buyer they are saying someone who isn't 65, maybe mid 40's or so.
Phillip Holbrook May 14, 2012
However I'm not stupid enough to think they will get this right, it will most likely be on Epsilon II with XTS, Impala, Lacrosse, Malibu, Regal, Equinox, Terrain, SRX.
Phillip Holbrook May 14, 2012
Alex the Tru 130 is on the Alpha platform that wasn't even thought of in 2007 when this came out. Though it would be a suitable platform now, I'm pretty sure this was on the Camaro/Holden Zeta platform, so yeah RWD.
Cham Khiev May 14, 2012
If they make this they will change my mind and outlook on buick, i like where there going..(nvr thought i ld say that.. Ever lol)
Alex Smith May 14, 2012
And the is a rebadged version of the Chevrolet Tru 130 concept.
Alex Smith May 14, 2012
Bring back the Firebird and T/A as a Buick. That'll turn the brands image around in a second, as well as give the Camaro's badass brother another shot.
Phillip Greene May 13, 2012
Yeah it was a blown 3.6 though I say make it look as close to the 71 as posible maybe use the cts 2dr so it will be rwd and have room for a v8 option bam buick owes some me money now
David Griego May 13, 2012
it'll most likely be a rebadged impala, new fenders buick grill, FWD, biggest engine will probably be a 3.x V6 due to the governments fuel regulation goal of 53mpg. And it'll cost more than $30,000. Not appealing to younger buyers, sorry.

Kris C. Lopez May 13, 2012
I actually quite like this conept
Lou Guerrero May 13, 2012
Waterfall grill.
Bijan Jahanpanah May 13, 2012
They could make a rebadged camaro
Paul Lissona May 13, 2012
They made rivieras till 98 I think, they were 3.8 v6 then.
Phillip Greene May 13, 2012
Um what the hell chevy is this bro? And yeah it was a muscle car it was big two door with a big motor-muscle car, this is to forein looking shaepen up the lines tone down the front a little and done
Christian De Prisco May 13, 2012
Yeah under 24k that looks just like this and you can sell it.....pure utopia
David Griego May 13, 2012
Make it under 24k, THEN it will appeal to younger buyers. If not, then it'll just be an over priced rebadged chevy, for old people.
Ryan Spencer May 13, 2012
Oh, and there is NEVER such thing as too many muscle cars...
Ryan Spencer May 13, 2012
Aside from the grille sitting slightly too high to be comfortable, this design is striking. I'd love to see this go to production.
Abraham Mendoza May 13, 2012
The Rivera was never really a muscle car, it was a very heavy very smooth cruiser, almost like a Continental. I really like this car, and I hope its rear wheel drive.
Jackson Michael May 13, 2012
There are already too many muscle cars right now to make this as well.
Kevin Irish May 13, 2012
I think the sides are extremely boring compared to the front. Good attempt for 2007, though.
Logan LeMonnier May 13, 2012
Oh yeah that'll make it into production...
Wallyed Alekozai May 13, 2012
I would make the new Riviera a muscle car. like how its suppost to be. this does look nice, but I would prefer a more "muscle car" design
Cody Andree May 13, 2012
If it was a Lexus everyone would drool. Fact
Jackson Michael May 13, 2012
It's not that bad
Nick Sti May 13, 2012
The grill needs to be moved down a bit
Jessica Rivera May 13, 2012
I'll will not even remember this, not a chance they will make this
Description: According to a report coming from GM Inside News, Buick has recently filed to trademark the Riviera name to be used on a future model. If anyone can recall the gorgeous 2007 Riviera concept (which cle...

I'll say this much. Buick is coming up. Their cars are becoming more attractive and worth the buy. Yes, Buicks were alright cars back then but that's the past.
Phillip Greene May 15, 2012
I mean you dont see me comparing late model american cars to 90s forein cars becuase thats a rigged comparison it makes no sence so why talk unless you actualy know what your talking about
Phillip Greene May 15, 2012
I dont know I think its just the people unwilling to actualy look at the cars who say shit like that because iv sat in a quatroporte drove it and then imeidiatly after drove an sts and then a gs vet all within 15mins and honestly I think the only people still trashing american cars are the ones who dont understand what vehicle segments are
Gianni Vega May 14, 2012
Back in the day Cadillacs were really the ultimate luxury cars, besides Mercedes, BMW and AUDi were no where to be seen. Cadillac could get back on there level if they would stop cutting corners. Most Everything feels cheaper in a Cadillac.
Zach Hill May 13, 2012
Rear drive would get the people back to the marque. Front drive is total bs.. And yes, America could damn well be a competitor if we as a country got our collective heads out of our collective asses. You're welcome...
Clint Edwards May 13, 2012
The car could be on par, hell it could even be better, but the average joe is gonna go with the more recognized name. My grandmother drove a Buick for 10 years, it's that rep they're gonna have to shake
Logan LeMonnier May 13, 2012
I think Buick is catching up but I would never choose one over an Audi or BMW. Maybe a Cadillac though
Chris Gaines May 13, 2012
however, cadillac definitely has the right idea and the cts-v is right up there with the m3/rs4
Chris Gaines May 13, 2012
and expecting them to make it back not blown to pieces.
Chris Gaines May 13, 2012
part of the reason that's true is because american automakers consider bringing a front wheel drive buick coupe to compete with the likes of Germany. that's like sending a Humvee into battle with the driver blindfolded and only a reverse gear,
Inderjot Sidhu May 13, 2012
Buick will NEVER reach the likes of Audi or Lexus. It will simply be just another bland American brand. It has no real distinguishing features and I'm actually pretty surprised they are profitable now. Who buys these?
Inderjot Sidhu May 13, 2012
@Phillip Agreed. The only American car I can even think of that comes close is Cadillac and even that is way below the respect of brands like MBZ or BMW. German cars are dominating the luxury market simply because they make the best cars in the world
Phillip Greene May 13, 2012
An american car can never be a compeditor to audi and bmw not because of any real reason its just the people who can aford those makes dont even consider them there idea of shoping for a car is seeing which german car they can get the best deal on
Michael Page May 13, 2012
Alpha! ALPHA!!!!
Zach Hill May 13, 2012
Give it a slight hood scoop and a nailhead v8 and you're there!
Andrew Hossann May 13, 2012
The back window shouldn't be that rounded
Kris C. Lopez May 13, 2012
Still looks nice but could be a helluva lot better
Kris C. Lopez May 13, 2012
...until I saw the back
Dan Bousquet May 13, 2012
cls 63 amg anyone???
Trent Griffin May 13, 2012
Grand National motor in it please...!
Michael Gallagher May 13, 2012
So this is suppose to be aimed at a younger crowed? But if I am correct, bricks are pretty expensive because it's an American luxury manufacturer. Don't think this will fly. Just saying
Jerry Cole May 14, 2012
BRING BACK THE SKYLARK!!!! (lol) no, srsly tho, this looks good, just taper the back a little, and you've got a winner
Alex Smith May 14, 2012
Do I spot T-tops?
Clint Edwards May 13, 2012
Needs something else going on, little too much blank space
Abraham Mendoza May 13, 2012
Yeah Toyota concepts are starting to look like birds rather than cars.
Logan LeMonnier May 13, 2012
Better looking then a Toyota!
Cody Andree May 13, 2012
Don't mind Matt. Hes only interested in ricers anyway
Brandon Lidy May 13, 2012
at least they're making progress. They haven't sent out an interesting vehicle in a long time. Maybe this will help them kick it into gear
Matt Piccolo May 13, 2012
Oh god thats ugly
Russ Sugar May 14, 2012
Make it AWD and I will buy it. 300hp please
Roy Brown May 13, 2012
I would buy it now
Logan LeMonnier May 13, 2012
Even if this made production it would never have the gull wings. It would look good with regular doors too though
Corey Alan Kelley May 13, 2012
I didn't see that coming I just don't like the rear
Tracy Keiser Dron May 13, 2012
Reminds me of Bentley
Braydon Pack May 13, 2012
This is so blank not much going on at all too simple.
Jason Levy May 13, 2012
Get rid of the buick sign and it will be golden
Gianni Vega May 14, 2012
Not bad, make that black instead of blue and I like it.
Zach Hill May 14, 2012
In what way? It harkens back to 40's and 50's interiors. You know, when cars had actual style.
Zac Czuhai May 13, 2012
Are you kidding me?! That's hideous!
Zach Hill May 13, 2012
That is gorgeous.
Roy Brown May 13, 2012
Wow. Nice like I said before I would buy it if jt stayed the way it is now!
Abraham Mendoza May 13, 2012
Yeah as good as this is, none of it would actually find its way in a real car.
Bob Turefannt May 13, 2012
Too bad buick's actual interior is not this good.
Devin Babyn May 13, 2012
Damn that would be the best interior in any American car by far
Hank Austin May 13, 2012
That looks pretty royal
Tj Blankenship May 13, 2012
Pretty damn cool
