This period held the fastest Buick since the days of the Grand National, the Buick Regal GS. This car was now supercharged instead of turbocharged and produced a very respectable 240 hp (180 kW) and 280 lb·ft (380 N·m) of torque. It has gained a reputation amongst those who know automobiles as a 'sleeper', or a car that performs better than one would expect from its looks. When introduced in 1997, Buick advertised the Regal as the "car for the supercharged family". Buick also released two other model types, the LSE and the GSE. The LSE stayed with the 200 hp (150 kW) engine with upgrades and the GSE stayed with the 240 hp (180 kW) supercharged engine with upgrades. Also, in 2000 Buick came out with a concept GNX that had an intercooled 3.8 L, but was supercharged rather than turbocharged. It had 300 hp (220 kW) unlike the original that had 276 hp (206 kW).

 Regal LS and GS performance
The 3800 Series II L67 Supercharged engine in a 1998 GS.The Regal LS from the factory had a 1/4 mile (~400 m) elapsed time (ET) of 15.8 seconds and could do 0-60 mph in under 8 seconds. The supercharged Regal GS had a 1/4 mile ET of 14.7 seconds, and acceleration to 60 mph (100 km/h) from a dead stop took only 6.6 seconds. The Regal GS, equipped with the supercharged 3.8 liter V6 engine (L67 produced 240 hp (180 kW) & 280 ft·lbf (380 N·m) of torque. The Regal GS's PCM has programming that activates torque management to reduce wheel spin at launch.
and isn't the weight around 3,400 lbs??? which would be around the same as a LS1.... so the if both cars weigh around the same amount and well the LS1 makes more power... mmmmm lets think about this...
