1989 Buick Reatta -- One of only 7,009 produced

1989 Buick Reatta - View # 1
Here is a near perfect example of the Buick two-seater Reatta personal sports/luxury car. This 1989 Reatta, (one of only 7,009 made) has only 52,000 original miles. When new, this coupe sold for $26,700... which was a problem when you consider that a Riviera sold for only $ 22,540. But, it was a bargain when compared to the 1989 Cadillac Allante two seater that went for $57,183. The Reatta is a limited production car and was positioned as a luxury two-place car with a combination of sporty and aerodynamic styling, nimble handling and a comfortable and quiet "Buick ride". The 3800 V-6 with the four-speed automatic transmission was the only powertrain offered. I challenge you to find a flaw anywhere in it. The touch-screen command center is unique and the sound system is superb.

The Reatta was the only two-seat passenger car that Buick ever produced. The $30,000 price tag was designed to attract drivers who wanted a sporty car such as the Corvette, but who preferred more luxury, room and comfort. It was not a sports car, but a luxury coupe built in limited volume on a 98.5" wheelbase.

All Reattas were built in a special assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan called the "Reatta Craft Center" from 1988 - 1991. They were marketed as a "Hand Crafted Car." Instead of the usual moving assembly line, GM organized its work force into small teams. Workers performed dozens of tasks on the cars at various locations known as "Craft Stations," within the plant. The cars were carried between locations by computer-guided carts.

The Reatta was the most expensive Buick made at the time. (Around $30,000) The car did not sell well because of the expensive price tag. Buick ceased production at the end of the 1991 model year. Because of the unique capabilities of the Reatta Craft Center, the plant has been renamed and is now called the Lansing Craft Center. It is being utilized for the manufacture of an electric car based on the high-performance impact show car.

For power the Reatta has a 3.8 Litre V6-165 horsepower sequential fuel injection engine and a four speed automatic transmission with front wheel drive. Every power and luxury option Buick had to offer was standard equipment.
