The T-Type cars were built as performance-oriented models, the most famous of which was the Buick GNX . During the time that the T-Type cars were in production, turbochargers were becoming very popular and they were adopted for use on production vehicles, the most notable of which was the Regal. The T-Type logo consisted of a large red letter "T", and the word "Type" in small black or white letters.

The T-Type series reached its peak in 1987. By that time, even the full-size LeSabre and Electra were available as T-Type models, but without the turbocharger. The T-Type line, however, met its demise in 1990, as an option on the Buick Electra, and the following year, a new, upsized Park Avenue Ultra was introduced with a supercharged engine.
