My First New Car

It is not an F-Body but it sure is fun to drive and it is my everyday driver and will not replace my F-Bodies. It is a 2010 Cobalt SS (Turbo) with 260 hP. and 260 Ft. pounds of Torque. A fun car. I picked it up a week ago Tuesday!
at the dealer,

at home,

They move for what they are. With some easy mods, you'll be keeping up with 5th gens -- it helps being 1000lbs lighter!

Nice color, too.

I thought the 07 model had 260 with the supercharger and the 08 and up had more like 280 with the turbo or I am thinking to high?

I am not sure of the supercharged version but I know it had less Hp. The 09 Turbos had 260 hp. and I did read somewhere the 2010's were going to have more than the 09's, but it has not been confirmed. I am going to check it out. Just did a google and the 07 SC had 205 Hp. and 200 Pd. Ft. of torque. So, the turbo get qite a bit more horsepower and torque.

It's a substantial difference between the 05-07 SS/SC and the 08-10 SS/TC. There are "Stage" kits available from GM for the SC versions that will put them near the TC levels, though.
