It's about time, enough of labeling 4 door fwd's and Silverado's with the sacred SS moniker.

It's funny that this was brought back from the dead now, 4 days before Nascar and Chevy introduce the new "SS" to the public on November 30th which will resemble the car that is set to come overseas from Holden next fall.

My cobalt ss turbo with 1500 in mods runs mid 12's and trap speeds at 115. Bought it with 11,000 On the OD and paid 16.5 for it. I can run pure Iowa sweet corn in it and the turbo models 2008 thru 2011 are very rare. I believe this car deserves the SS title.

My new 2013 camaro ss/rs ls3 Special Edition with nav,sunroof,dual mode exhaust. 42,800 Plus 6400 for blower so I can go faster than my 18,000 Cobalt.

You could have ordered a SS Chevy II wagon with a straight 6! You'd be hard pressed to find one, but they did exist.
True the SS was an appearance package - A mean buzzing half dozen Deuce would be worth a mint about now.

OK...there Shouldn't have been an SS Malibu and maxx....there shouldn't have been an all motor SS cobalt automatic 4 door sedan....I will, however, step in and say leave the Turbo HHR SS and Turbo Cobalt SS alone. Those were damn fast cars. For $600 you can buy and program a stage 1 kit from GMPP and bump your car 30HP and 60TQ with a factory tune....those cars are no slouch. Imagine 300HPand 320TQ in a 2975lb Cobalt...I had one

and holy dead thread batman!

Instead of worrying about a badge, how about producing parts that don't break on SS models? It's disgusting that you can't use the features on the car from the factory in fear of destroying the car, i.e., launch control.

2 more cents...

Reading this thread got me thinking ...

Does that mean that the "base" V8 model won't be the SS anymore? (Camaro now, not talking lawnmowers, etc).
