CAFE can put it where the Sun Don't Shine.

My 2KZ28 is about to grenade the rear-axle from too many throttle-shifted torque blasts. I think I ~might~ buy a Volt for a daily driver, keep my 2K, and say "It still runs."

And then there were Three.

In the meantime, my Trusty 2K10 Camaro SS will be anxiously waiting to be unleashed........

Well I obviously chose the Camaro SS. I work at a pharmacy up the street from home (not even a mile away). When I'm an intern, CU Denver is only a few miles away from home. My mom bought me a new Aveo back in May (I seriously get 30+ mpg CITY with that car). So I guess I don't care about gas prices, it doesn't affect my decision on a Camaro SS

ok, for you that are complaining that the volt isnt worth the price, and you would rather buy a prius, watch this vid first. its a must see.
The prius part starts at 2:15


actually, everyone should just watch it anyways. Jeff Dunham is hilarious.
oh, and i picked the SS. I cant have an electric "thing" next to my V8 78. i need something that compliments my older car.

Um....I'll take the Camaro/Volt in

ONE!

That's right. Driving around the Camaro w/ Voltish underpinnings. That means regular driving costs me NO gas but when I step on it, BAM!!! 450 horses screaming out of the tailpipes!

Here you go:

Had to vote Camaro. With extended range Volt would be an option. My commute to work is 22 miles, can't make the round trip. Just not practical for big ol Texas.

Now if it had the range of the Tesla!

Well I'm a Democrat, but not a treehugger, and I do think looking at the big picture CAFE is a good idea, albeit a bit agressive, but a good idea nonetheless. I welcome the Volt and hope it's a hit because the car that gets like a gazillion MPG will help GM meet CAFE regs so that we can get more high powered vehicles on the otherside of the spectrum, which is why if it works I'll be more than happy to buy one (for my wife!). Ultimately our dependance on oil whether foriegn or domestic needs to be curbed because it is contributing the decay of our ecosystem, (don't think global warming is real... look at the Gulf region this summer!) and one day WE WILL RUN OUT! Hopefully before we have 110 degree heat in January and have pumped our last barrel of crude we'll have an infrastrucure that will allow us to continue our society uninterrupted. BUT, untill then I want my big loud ass V8!!

35k for an SS? No thanks. Thats nearly 50k in Canadian pricing. I'd take a Volt instead, gas is more expensive here too, ~$5/gal now. I'd never buy a Prius, regardless of pricing.

Also, when did GM announce pricing on the Volt? People seem to be upset by the notion that it will cost GM ~40k to produce but ignore the fact that the shareholders have agreed that they will sell the Volt at a loss. Its more important for GM to sell the thing than to make money on it. And that was in the midst of large quarterly losses too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Volt#Price

Quote:
As of August 2008, General Motors Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Rick Wagoner was quoted saying that the price of the Volt would likely be in "the mid to high 30's", suggesting a price of more than US$5,000 more than originally targeted.

What happened?

That is unfortunately a total brick aerodynamically. They did extensive wind tunnel testing and rounded the design quite a bit.

Neither...

If I'm dropping 35k for a car, I will be saving another 5-6k and just buy a new vette.

My limit on the camaro is 32k, past that I can get a less than 3 years old garage queen vette, or just save another couple grand and buy one new.


EDIT - on the topic of the volt... MANY lose site of the fact that if you drive less than 40 miles a day your gas bill is $0.00 which means you have that money you would normally spend on gas to use towards the payment of the car. So if you spend $40 a week in gas now.. that's $160 more a month you can afford towards a car that doesn't use gas. $160 more in a payment can be upwards of 5-10k more on the total price of the vehicle.
