Not uncommon, I remember the C5 Corvette chassis driving around Metro Detroit under 4th Gen Camaro bodies

Yeah...that's a great way to do it. Personally, I wouldn't be able to keep my excitement under wraps. I'd be looked at as being nuts after screaming to passers by that "it's a 5th Gen!!!" I'd still like to see a picture of the test mule....just out of curiosity.

Odds are it is out there but guised as another car (probably a G8/Commodore), so no one really knows....

That's what the article said....that it was wearing a different body. I don't remember which one, but there's more than one 5th Gen in disguise runnin round down unda!

I'm sure there's some drivetrain test mules running around, with another body on it.

That was done at the Homestead track in FL. I talked with Chris which was the handler for that test. Talking with him he was very impressed with how the car preformed for the day. No major issues for those days considerng the car ran all day long.
