Despite the constant demand, the production was stopped in 1987 and 30 years later in the present time, General Motors is bringing back this entry as 2016 Buick Grand National and plans to launch it as a coupe with two doors. Since this car shares its base platform with Cadillac ATS, we can expect it to have a sporty body shape along with superior quality wheels and an overall aggressive visual.
