The LH platform was an in-betweener-sized platform, meaning it was bigger and more upscale than the Ford D-series and GM W-body "midsize" platforms, but not as durable and luxurious as the Panther and GMX690 platforms. (The GMX690 indirectly replaced the aging B-body.)

I'm surprised that this thing was even slower than the Ford Taurus SHO, let alone the Buick Regal GS and Pontiac Grand Prix GTP twins.
