    14.1 is not bad for a stock car that is supposed to be a suped up family economy car. turbo would make more power, but i just like the blower whine and that its different

    Cobalt is comming back and it will be the new "skittle" 260/260 HP/TQ. Not a rumor its true. Unveiled at the SEMA show. It should be a hot little hatch Brembos, turbo ecotec good handling suspension.

    my question is why would you want to buy a colbalt thats going to be a 14 sec. car for around $22k base when the new camaro is coming and is going to be priced to compete with the mustang and you can get a new v8 stang for around $25 if you don't get too crazy with the options, hmmm 3 grand more for a v8 and a car that is sexy ass hell and has been mentioned that the either the LS2 or LS3 will be the BASE v8, i think i know my choice if i were buying a new car.

    Simple economics. Gas is expensive, people drive to work on a daily basis, V8 doesn't exactly scream fuel economy(yeah I know the whole variable displacement blah blah). Then there's insurance... Much cheaper for a 4 banger than a muscle car. But me, I know which one I'd go for... heck might even do both.

    HAHA gas milage is the funny part, the old SS supercharged got 22 mpg city 30 highway, so for my M6 LS1 has averaged 24 to 25mpg per tank and maybe 80 out of the 200 mile on that tank are highway, but yeah insurance blows on it
