|Buick Riviera 1990|
The Buick Riviera is a luxury car manufactured from 1963 to 1999. GM's first entry into that prestige niche, the Riviera was highly praised by automotive journalists upon its high-profile debut. While early models stayed close to the original form, subsequent generations varied substantially over the Riviera's thirty-year lifespan. The coupés were converted to unibody construction and further downsized for 1986, to a 108 inch wheelbase shared with the Buick Regal. This generation was noted for advanced electronic instrumentation. Four-wheel disc brakes were standard. With a choice of three suspension packages available, up to the performance oriented FE3 setting, handling was notably improved. Fuel economy was notably improved for the 1986 Riviera. The last 1993 Riviera rolled off the Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant line on December 10, 1992.
