Cool but...not as cool as the current SS. Just looks like a basic Cobalt with bigger wheels. MEH I say. Thanks for the info though, cool to know!

Chevrolet better make up it's mind now. In the first ss they added a super charger, next ss its normally aspirated, now it's turbocharged.... if they keep changing this more often more people aren't going to buy there cars..... not that I would care.

They always had their minds made up. The S/C came out, and then they added a NA version with a 2.4L engine that was making around 170hp....this was along side the s/c version, so their was both a NA SS and a F/I SS. There were always talks about replacing the s/c with the turbo...it just makes sense, its a better engine combo, and its already being used in like 4 different cars. See, GM actually does know what they are doing.....who doesnt?

FORD....talk about who can't make up their minds lol

both the solstice gxp and the sky redline are awesome cars. I love them both, but prefer the sky cause it looks alot better. They are quick too, and great platforms. I sat in them many times and they fit like a glove. I wonder what the time differences will be between the gxp/redline compared to the cobalt ss, since the SS is front wheel drive, but they're all around the same weight. A big difference they'll have though is price... the SS will probably be stickered in the low 20s where as the GXP is closer to 30 and the redline is alittle above. Props to GM for continuing to put out exciting cars.

I think Chevy has been doing awesome things lately. I actually like most of their cars. I was surprised a few weeks ago when I didn't see the Monte in the lineup on their website. Chevy's styling and interior designs have come A LONG way since the 90's.

Oh come ON Ford! Give us something cool like this! All of the competition really tempts me these days. I've owned nothing but Fords and they now have no performance option for the sport compact arena whatsoever! I'm losing it here!
