    Not!


    http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/16/this-is-your-2014-chevrolet-ss/

    It turned out to be a rehash of the 2009 GXP sans the manual tranny, which we are bitching loud and long about since it's offered in the SS-v. The interior sure is nice though. I think they will rethink and correct the decision about the manual given that the GXP had a manual tranny take rate of 46%, which has got to be the highest of any sedan let alone a large sedan. New nose isn't aggressive enough either given that the sales of this car will be about 98% male. However, for the tiny niche player that this will be, we're lucky to get anything. I think the HP rating will be nudged up to the LS3 in the Camaro SS if not what's in the C6 as the base engine since the C7 is going to the new Gen 5 LT-1.

    And this will likely be that last of the relatively affordable rear wheel drive, large V8, true LSD, performance sedans. The next cheapest V8 with true LSD is the M5 ... makes going sideways that much easier.

    The only real competition is the LX SRT8. How effectively will this compete? I know it needs more power with the LXs at 470 hp, but the Zeta VF is 400 pounds lighter.

    I was expecting a story about a new mini-cooper.

    or a Miata or 3 series. It was a trap !!!!!

    And If it was a dyke forum, then the latest and greatest from Subaru (it's a Legacy what those 'chicks' do in the Outback)

    Uhhh, the 3 is a great car...

    And the new incarnation of the coupe as the 4-series is way sicker than the fuckin Chevy you posted. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Saw the press release last week. It's just called the "SS"? I originally thought it was a Malibu SS or something.

    It's not a bad looking car. A little on the bland side. Lacks any sort of aggressive lines for a sports sedan. But it does look much better than the other Chevy sedans on the market right now. Kinda disappointed there's no manual transmission option. Considering the price, this is definitely an enthusiast car.

    Wish GM would just starting selling Holden cars here directly.

    I respectfully disagree.


    IMO, it's over-priced, over-rated and butt-ugly.

    BMW are overpriced just because of a name and that Chevy is pretty lame looking despite whatever numbers it can put out.

    Lol whenever someone says a German car is over-priced all I hear is:

    "I can't afford it."

    Drive one.

    As I said, that's our complaint. I'm not happy, but I understand why they're doing this. No manual is a fatal flaw though .... IF that truly comes to pass.

    And Chevys are for boring old men.

    Does it come with a prune juice holder?

    How about a mirror deflector so you don't have to accidentally catch a glimpse of your wasted, hideous, bitter ol' face.

    I kid, I kid. With love.

    If being a fag means looking like me and driving the BMW over the Chevy, then I'll take it.

    This is as direct as you'll get. Take the Holden Lion off and replace it with the bowtie and there you go.

    Way on the bland side. Interior is a big improvement.

    Your fucking hot.

    Fag is a compliment. It is always said out of passion- usually somebody who wants to fuck you but knows hey could never get you.

    "I can't afford it."

    Drive one.




    pay for it over 5 or 6 years' time (the average length of today's auto loan period).

    keep it for 9 or 10 years.

    maintain it.

    insure it.


    You will then also agree that a Break My Window is wayyyyyyy overpriced.

    Nope. I still want a V8, rear wheel drive and a true LSD. Cheap too!
