It seems there is an intriguing vehicle sitting within the walls of the General Motors design studio in Warren, Michigan. According to Motor Trend, and insider has tipped that a four-door coupe version of the striking Buick Avista exists, and it’s currently being considered for production.
The Avista concept was produced on a mix of Alpha and Omega architecture bones, but this four-door coupe would likely use the Alpha platform wholly. The business case really opens up by stretching the platform and adding an extra set of doors, too.
Buick would receive an exclusive, halo vehicle to likely replace the Cascada in the future, and the market segment opens up considerably when branding the Avista as a four-door coupe, rater than a two-door sports coupe. And four-door coupes are all the rage, despite being the bane of oxymoronic.
Buick chief, Duncan Aldred, has already gone on the record to state he has been surprised at the reaction the Avista has received through the auto show circuit, and that the brand would take a closer look into a production variant. Although it wouldn’t remain entirely true to the concept, the possibilities are promising for an engaging, utterly enthusiast driven Buick knowing how well the Alpha platform performs, and what powertrains could plug into such a car.
Not only that, but it would be quite easy to turn this Buick show stopper into an Opel, Vauxhall and Holden. And global sales are the second key for a vehicle like this to succeed.
