http://www.autoblog.com - The car we know in the US as the Buick Regal is sold as a Vauxhall/Opel Insignia in Europe, where it's offered in four-door sedan, five-door liftback, and wagon body styles. Call it a case of wanting what we can't have, but we like the last two body styles a lot. Based on a report from a Buick/GMC dealer meeting in Austin, one of them could be coming to the US soon. In addition to the Regal wagon, GM also showed the 2018 Enclave and GMC Terrain to its Buick and GMC dealers.

http://www.motorauthority.com - A prototype for what’s believed to be a new Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is back testing hard at the Nürburgring. It’s the first time the prototype has been spotted at the German racetrack since the May 12 crash where it ran off the track and smacked a barrier, likely due to a mechanical issue. While the car may not end up being called a Z/28, it’s clearly a track-focused version of the sixth-generation Camaro. Telltale signs are the aerodynamic mods, lowered suspension, and seriously wide rubber.

http://www.roadandtrack.com - The 2017 Z/28 isn't the only high-performance Camaro that's been spied testing at the Nürburgring: The 640-horse 2017 Camaro ZL1 was just spotted blasting around the Nordschleife, and it sounds angry as hell. And unlike the Z/28, we can see this Camaro in all its un-camouflaged glory. Even though the ZL1 isn't as track-focused as we assume the Z/28 will be, Chevy still wants this car to have some serious road course chops.

The Insignia Holden is currently selling in Australia – 117 sales for the first four months of this year – is available in just one variant, the VXR. That’s a rebadged version of the car known overseas as the Opel Insignia OPC. In Australia, the Insignia VXR is overlooked in the showroom as prospective buyers rush past it in the stampede for the remaining V8-engined Commodores.
http://news.pickuptrucks.com - Chevrolet's Colorado ZR2 Concept shown at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show continues to ramp up testing. GM engineers were recently caught putting a lightly camouflaged extended cab through its paces. This continued development testing with an extended-cab version of the Prerunner-style Colorado prototype, along with continued testing of the crew-cab ZR2 we reported on earlier this year, is a strong indication that a midsize off-road competitor to Toyota's Tacoma TRD Sport and TRD Pro might soon be added to the existing Colorado lineup.
