When designers originally penned Reatta as a two-seat sports car for Buick, by the time GM’s Bean Counters and Marketing-By-Committee executives had their say, the production car launched as a front-wheel-drive personal luxury coupe targeted towards older affluent buyers interested in owning a fun third car.  Hardly a sports car, Reattas featured Buick’s ubiquitous 3.8 Liter V6 power plant connected to an automatic transmission in a softly sprung front-wheel-drive platform.

In addition to being hand built by teams of five assemblers at GM’s Lansing Craft Center, one of the early Reatta’s most striking features is its touch-screen system, called the Electronic Control Center (ECC), which was considered to be one of the most advanced interfaces of its day. Remarkably full-featured, ECC provided access to audio, climate control, and trip computer functions, and it even included vehicle diagnostics functions. In typical GM fashion, however, by 1990, Reattas received less trouble-prone and cheaper-to-build vacuum-fluorescent gauges just as Buick began offering an ASC-designed convertible version with a manually-folding cloth soft top and glass rear window.
