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/e...ltss/07_SEMA_Chevrolet Cobalt SS Overview.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! :thumbsup:

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 could live with that car as a replacement for my mustang as a DD.

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.

The Caliber is by far VERY ugly...its a joke really. From what I understand its quite heavy so I bet a turbo cobalt (be nice with a 6spd) could take one.

So thats a record for class for:
Cobalt SS
HHR SS

I think we might be seeing new records for class for:
Camaro SS
Corvette (ZR1)
CTS-V

What do you think?
