Cruze starts production at Lordstown next year. The 2010 Cobalt will be short-lived, and good riddance.

Good riddance to a car that should have had better design.

Personally, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an LNF based cruze SS.

P.S. - you talk like the SS was the only cobalt made, when in fact it only made a VERY small portion of cobalt sales.

Congratulations on the most incoherent post ever on this website.

In response to your horrific run-on sentence, I would absolutely love to know how you're so sure there isn't a performanced-based Cruze in the works.

Good riddance to compact cars with boring exteriors and cheap, unimaginative interiors. Cruze is light years ahead of the Cobalt in terms of both.

Really? The Cruze looks pretty boring itself.

Ummmm, wow.

As far as a performance Cruze goes- Chevrolet closed GMPD recently, they stated only the CTS-V, Corvette, and Camaro were on the performance radar for the forseeable future, and they have specifically said they aren't looking at a performance Cruze at this time. Although that is always subject to change without notice. They have links to posts about this over on CobaltSS.net. He's not making that up.

Without some specific person or group of people with some passion for a Cruze project, I'd worry about the end result. They should wait until they get the right people together otherwise they'll just slap in a more powerful engine and stiffer springs and call it a day.

I've never actually driven a Cobalt other than my SS and some other SS's so I wouldn't know how the regular ones are. As far as the SS's go, I think some of us have grown attached to our little Cobalts. It may be a red headed step child- but it's MY red headed step child. So be kind .

What are you, serious? The Corvette's interior is pretty bad too. The C7 needs to fix that. Nevertheless, you cannot deny that the Cobalt's interior was absolutely horrible.

Yes, GM is going to get rid of their two most iconic vehicles in their quest to become toyota, and yes, I want GM to become toyota, even though I've denounced toyota for years.

I wonder if people ever actually put any thought into what they post here.

Read what you posted that I've put in bold. There is no reason GM can't do a performance-based Cruze, and there is plenty of evidence that says there was (and still might be) one in the works. If any of you watched the reveal at Lordstown, there was one Cruze that looked quite interesting.

Don't get me wrong, I'd like them to do a performance Cruze as long as they fully engineer it. They've got a nice little Cruze racing platform going on too- so some tie in opportunities.

I'm just of the opinion that right now they consider performance models of anything but those 3 cars (vette, camaro, cts-v) a distraction. Maybe in late 2011 or 2012 they'll feel more adventurous. Its a well worn tradition to put out a performance model of vehicles that are starting to age.

In the meantime, I hope this thread can get back on track. No need to insult anyone's current ride or accuse them of being closet Toyota lovers.

everybody i've talked to says it's not bad you know what's ridiculous you expecting everything out of a car for cheap lets just say you have $20,000 and your going to buy a NEW car you can either get luxury and buy a toyota or you can get performance from a cobalt ss and the reason you people never give the vette hell is cause it's so fast and it's "not just a cobalt". You expect too much from a $20,000 performance car.

Yes they'll get rid of it just like toyota got rid of the supra anything is possible... and you say that a luxury car are far superior to performance is the toyota way of thinking

Please tell me what luxury car I can buy from toyota for $20k. Oh right, I can't.

Okay, you keep telling yourself that. It's obvious you really don't know anything about GM's future plans if that's what you're expecting.

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, has said that the Corvette, Camaro, and CTS-V are the last performance cars from GM. That's total BS that you just made up to prove your own point. If GM was giving up on performance completely, there wouldn't be a Regal GS in the works right now.

And in case you didn't know, Cruze was in development long before GM went into bankruptcy, when GMHPVO was still active. It's the same reason there will be a CTS-V Coupe and why the CTS-V Sportwagon is under consideration. Hell, Lutz himself said they're considering a performance-oriented Volt.

It's not as ridiculous as you might think. Electric vehicles don't need a transmission, which results in instant torque. Look to the Tesla Roadster as an example. Electric-only range would be sacrificed, but a performance-tuned Voltec vehicle could work out quite well.

Actually, I would like to..."horrible" is an exaggeration, imo. It is not best-in-class, nor...best-in-anything ()...but having lived in one for almost 2 years now, my only complaint is the use of materials.

To-be-announced (and likely, since it's already being sold in Europe...). As for the hp, does the Cobalt?

(in all seriousness...the Cobalt doesn't have nice cupholders...whoever decided to put them up against the HVAC controls like that never put a cup in there to test it, I'm sure of it....)
