    Yeah, Bob Lulz talking about a Volt SS was :ugh2:. A Zeta-based Impala with an LS3-powered SS variant? Much better. :bigthumb:

    I don't know if there's really anything else they could/should apply the SS badge to, though. I guess those two would be enough. Don't want to dilute the name again. :dunno:

    GM has said this 5 or 6 times over the past 10 years. Won't happen.

    Cruze SS would be nice. It's already getting a turbo 1.4L as standard. Just use a bigger engine with more boost. :hs:

    Edit: There's already a ~200hp 1.6L turbo Ecotec in Europe.

    i miss the days when someone asked you what you drove, you could simply answer SS and there would be no question as to what it was.
