Dont quote Edmunds for anything remotely car related. Kinda like Consumer Reports, they just need to stick to refrigerators and washing machines. Manual Regal's can knock down 0-60 times under 7 seconds and 1/4 in the mid to lower 15's.

At the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, GM showed a concept GS version of the Regal based on the Opel Insignia OPC. The concept featured a 2.0L, 255 hp (190 kW), 295 lbft (400 Nm) high-output DOHC I4 turbocharged Ecotec engine, a six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive.

The production GS leaves most of the concept specifications intact, but will be front-wheel drive.[24] The GS features Buick's Interactive Drive Control System with GS mode, a choice of an FGP Germany F40-6 six-speed manual or Aisin AF-40 (G2) six-speed automatic transmission, high performance brakes with Brembo front calipers and high performance strut (HiPerStrut) front suspension. 19 inch wheels will be standard and 20 inch forged aluminum wheels will be available. The GS is expected to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in under seven seconds.[25] The production version will be equipped with GS-only high-output version of the Ecotec 2.0L turbo engine with 270 hp and 295 lbft (400 Nm) of torque. The GS will go on sale in fall 2011 as a 2012 model.

270hp and thats still on a 4cyl. thats on par with GM's "ADVERTISED" power rating as the 87 grand national @ 276hp and 360 ft/lbs....t

Im unsure if the buick 2.8 is the same as the Saab 2.8 but if they use the saab aero x engine 2.8 twin turbo(on pure ethanol) makes 400hp and 0-60 is estimated in 4.9 seconds. that might possibly make it into a new Grand national if one is built.
