The Buick Regal has become a very successful model for the brand and General Motors as a whole. So much so that demand for the Regal in the United States was outstripping inventory when it first launched last year. Currently, the 2011 Buick Regal is available only as a sedan, but what else does GM have up its sleeve?

During a press briefing last year, Buick Product Marketing Director Roger McCormack said that Buick was ‘strongly considering’ a coupe model for the Buick lineup. Well, that’s all fine and dandy, we’d like to have some fun in the sun.

When asked about the convertible, McCormack said: “We are always looking for ways to excite our customers…I think a convertible would do just that. Nothing to announce today but know we will look hard at a convertible option.”

That was almost a year ago. According to our sources, designers have already sketched up a Buick Regal convertible and are looking to get the model approved by the higher-ups. If approved, the model will get the same engine lineup as the sedan with a 182-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder and a 220-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged. Also, insiders suggest Buick will most likely opt for a soft-top over a hard-top convertible Regal.
