    What do you consider "fast"?


    SC or TC version of the SS?

    Big wing and silly exhaust.

    Faster than an M Coupe merging on the highway.

    The new ones are actually really quick, they ran a time of x.xx on the ring(can't remember the number) but it was supposedly a very respectable time, especially for a fwd econobox

    260 HP for the '08 Cobalt SS
    14 flat at around 102 mph stock, Car and Driver said it was the best handling FWD car they've tested (or was it Motor Trend), anyway, all the car mags say it fucking rocks.
