We should all know by now that both the NG9-3 and OG9-5 had quite a bit of Opel DNA. The NG9-5 may have been nearly 100% Opel as a cost cutting move by GM and SAAB in an attempt to keep SAAB afloat. Likewise, a couple of the current Buick Models are 100% Opel, the Cascada and Regal, even being built in Russelsheim! (The Cascada may come from another Opel plant but it doesn't change the intent of this message).
Effectively the Buick Regal TourX is the NG9-5 SC which was never built!
True, I have sat in some Regals and prefer the interior of our SAABs, (I do not like the Regal cloth interior, IMHO) but under the skin the TourX could easily be considered the NG9-5 SC which never was.
