Seriously though. Zora Duntov come up with that moniker. One time after a race a reporter told him "that's some sports car you got there" he replied "it's a Super Sports car"...and SS was born!!
Zora was driving the 1957 Corvette S/S Race car --
....and you're correct on the quote -- other than his retort was -- "No -- it's a SUPER Sport Car!...."
...........that stuck in the minds of a few people at Chevrolet -- and the first "Super Sport" production car was offered on the 1961 Impala. Tidbit: you could even order the SS package on a 4-door hardtop!
