The ST and SVT will smoke a normally aspirated Cobalt SS. I even think my ZTS with the automatic will do it. None of the above stand a chance against the forced air versions, tho, those things fly.

you can't really compare apples to oranges. compare maybe a 2.3 stroker svt vs a n/a cobalt or a SC svt vs SS cobalt ect. but I would hope to heck a SC cobaklt could beat a n/a focus

here are some specs for the Cobalt

SS N/A Version 0-60=7.1 sec, 1/4 mile=15.6 sec

SS Supercharged 0-60=5.9 sec, 1/4 mile=14.4 sec

SS Turbo 0-60-5.5 sec, 1/4 mile=13.9 sec

These arent bad for a car coming straight from the factory.

Depends on which Supercharged Cobalt you are dealing with...

I have had cobalt SS' keep up with my 06 Mustang GT once they're on the power band...but they get beat pretty bad on the 60', with torque steer and limited power off full boost...
