I dig your optimism, but as soon as those idiots at CAFE, EPA and all those places hear "V8" they'll just go "no".

The SS and Z28 are already done. There just won't be any future high performance vehicles until GM is financially healthy.

I would be interested in knowing if this decision was based on profitabilty for such vehicles or if was just deemed politically incorrect. For example, has GM analyzed the cost to design and produce these high-performance vehicles vs their ROI?

I say bring back the COPO cars, let specialzed dealers order them and then build specialty versions and even have them titled under a non-gm or chevy name. Similar to what Saleen did for the Mustang. That might allow them to get under the CAFE standards since I don't think those rules apply to limited production vehicles are mfg's that produce small numbers.

Holy overreaction, Batman!

The Camaro SS is already done, of course they'll keep building them, hell, people on this site have been driving them. The CTS-V will continue production, Cobalt SS will continue production, blah blah blah.

All it means is that future engineering/development of high-performance models has been suspended until further notice. Nothing more.

^GM would rather kill off all other performance models before they kill the Corvette. But I'm suspecting the C7 is a long ways a way.

Hold on guys.....the SS Camaro is a "regular" production car. The "SS" models and other "hi-po" cars included in that area are the ones requiring "extra" work to build, such as the "V" Cadi's, Cobalt SS and HHR SS, which are built off of a "regular" production model. The SS Camaro was always meant to be produced right from the start of the model, not an afterthought as the others. Say goodbye to a kick-ass Silverado SS and a next generation of STS-V's to go with the CTS-V.

Can't say I didn't see something like this happening. Just glad it happened after the Camaro was a go. This is certainly a wake-up call to GM's current financial crisis, as well as that of the US. Best of luck to everyone.

On a positive note....may the value of our current hi-po factory cars will be going up sooner then expected. 15 years instead of 30

Exactly, until the cash situation improves anyway. So the HPVO stimulus package is this, get you and all your family and friends to go buy a nice new GM car or truck. And even people that are more like acquaintances, and then round up just of few more of those, "I remember her from that thing after work a few weeks ago but can't remember her name" people and just go buy a very nice GM product.

Sorry had to plug.

I drive my dads from time to time, but that's only because my Saabs A/C is on the fritz at the moment and it's kinda dangerous to drive during wintertime then. And holy hell what a boring car. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather drive it then a Ford Focus, but the Prius is just so... Let me put it this way, my dad borrowed my Saab for a bit wheile his Prius was getting serviced and he put it like this "You really drive the Saab, with the Prius you're just sorta along for the ride".

I have the distinct feeling my dad might find excuses to borrow my SS once I have it, lol.

... except for the silverado thing

silverado SS would be stupid, and at that, was stupid.

Im sure GM will come through and start developing V and SS models again. They have to.

Yes, this is true. Hold on to your new 2010 camaro guys and girls. This car will be remembered as a car produced during a troubled GM and troubled economy.

I will never get rid of mine unless someone is willing to pay more that what I payed for it.
