Cobalt SS gets 260hp/260tq Turbo DI 2.0

As expected, GM has officially confirmed that the next rendition of the Cobalt SS (on sale 2nd Quater 2008) will indeed get the 260hp/260tq Turbo DI 2.0L.

http://media.gm.com/us/gm/en/news/ev...20Overview.htm

This new Cobalt SS has set a new record lap at Nurburgring for the front-drive sport-compact class, rounding the circuit in 8:22.85, over 13 seconds faster than the previous record.

Should be a quick, fun car!

Looks good, Im glad they did the turbo over the s/c like in the older models. It even looks like (from the pics) that they ditched the big spoiler.

I think the big spoiler will now be optional equipment.
A good move IMO.

Nice, I wouldn't get one. I'm cheap and prefer the 87 octane gas.
Which would limit me to the basic 2.2L 4 cylinder .
They should come up with a 87 octane replacement for the SS(sport), imho.

Not bad if that is stock I wonder if GM will offer a "stage II" like they did with the SC models. The new GM "skittle" SRT-4's watch out.
