GM Considering 'Something Really Fun' for Buick

The assertion that GM is contemplating "something really fun" for its Buick Division gains credence now that the dramatic Riviera concept coupe has been introduced at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show.

China was no accidental setting for the concept coupe's debut. The Chinese just love Buick. In fact, in 2012, sales topped 700,000 there. Compare that to the 180,000 sold in America during the same period. The overall demographic is younger in the Asian market than in North America, so the creation of "something fun" with the Buick nameplate on it would undoubtedly continue the exploding demand for the brand in the world's most populous country.

Youth appeal is succeeding in the U.S. as well. Of the 38 automotive brands sold in the United States, only Buick has actually reduced the average age of its buyer. Three years ago the average was 62 years of age; today it is 59...

Judging by the recent successes enjoyed by GM's Buick division, its designers have had no problem finding the creative inspiration needed to generate enthusiasm across expanding demographics. But, that has not stopped the creative team from looking in new directions as well. Now, Buick has demonstrated how to turn Pinterest boards into new concepts for the two-row crossover, the Buick Encore.

This popular new social media network has supplied tangible and useful ideas for both interior and exterior Encore designs.

Buick ran a "Pinterest to Dashboard" contest, and the results were just announced at the New York Auto Show. Nine successful and influential fashion, food, and design bloggers were approached to develop Pinterest boards evocative of their respective passions and personal styles.

The winner of the competition was Michael Wurm Jr., a bed-and-breakfast owner from Pennsylvania. Mr. Wurm has almost four million Pinterest devotees following him. His board featured beach scenes and sea foam-inspired tones. In turn, Buick designers used these pins as inspiration for brand-new textures, color palettes, and even designs for the Encore...
