I came up with a few search returns ON the NEW 2007 BUICK GNX to be made in australia starting in september 2006

IT claims a direct injected twin turbo and intercooled 3.6 L alloytech global engine that boasts 450 hp and 465 lb ft torque with either a 6 speed manual or 6 speed auto gearbox for $ 38,500


I WANT one !!

Yeah me too, I have found my next car also

Does anyone know if they will be just sold in Austrailia or can we expect them here in the States in September. I have seen either on this site or the other TB site they were going to just go with the Zeta platform, because the turbo Engineering would cost too much.

Why not? I've driven lots of my buddies turbo 4-cyl dodges with 5-speeds and it's no problem. He's got a few cars in the low 11's now.

I'm sure we'll never see one in Canada, still can't get a GTO here.

I like the soltice and the saturn deal whatever its called and i sorta like the sleeper gto look, may be cause i'm getting older but would agree most of the line up is in the toilet and IMO this is better than anything else buick has put out since 87.

Somebody online re-did a GTO photo and called it the GNX. You could tell it was a GTO but it looked really cool. That thing looks like an overgrown Saturn Ion Redline.

Gotta chuckle every time this type of thread pops up, and it will without fail every couple of months or so.

As for Popular Hot Rodding's speculation that Buick is dead. I really rather doubt it. It's one of the highest selling vehicles in China now. Ya, Ya, I know, China. But hey, numbers are numbers. The're literally selling hundreds of thousands of Buicks annually over there.

The "zeta" GNX is a dream, put together by Popular Hot Rodding- without GM involvement. Last time GM did a GNX show car, it was a supercharged Regal 4 door, with special trim, and that was years ago. I couldn't find any mention of anything newer, doing a web search.

If that car makes it to the states it ain't going to look like that. From what I understand 2006 is the last year for that platform. Its the reason there aint going to be a 07 GTO. And that photo thats been floating around forever is somebodies photoshop dream, not from GM. No doubt that the direct injection 3.6 is the next step in the evolution of that motor as in its current form is being used by Buick and Cadillac exclusively right now. Seeing as we wont be seeing the new Camaro for at least another 3 possibly 4 years I wouldn't throw out the possibilty that Buick could get something in the form of that car. You'll just have to wait a very long time.

Production was stopped on the Holden Monaro Months ago. I think GTO production was done or almost done when I looked into it about 2 months ago. Bought an M3 instead. :D :D
