I'm hoping that GM greenlights the Code 130R to compete against that car both here and globally.

What's that? I'm pretty close to getting the GTS as my daily driver. Let the wife have the Commodore.

Thanks mate, not sure on the 140 but the 130 looks quite nice.

Make the upper grill opening a bit smaller and this seems to be the closest so far:



Maybe these tail lamps:

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

So everyone still convinced that Chevrolet SS Performance Sedan is just a "rumor" or a "placeholder" for the real name?

LAS VEGAS – Chevrolet today opened a new chapter in its storied racing history, unveiling its eagerly anticipated 2013 NASCAR Chevrolet SS race car. Powered by the legendary small block V-8 engine, the rear-wheel drive performance sedan will be Chevrolet’s newest entry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, beginning with the 2013 SpeedWeeks in Daytona, Fla.

The new NASCAR race car closely resembles the all-new rear wheel drive V-8 Chevrolet SS performance sedan that will debut early next year.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

I think we succumbed to reality a while back Eric. lol. I hope to God it doesn't get the Malibu tail lights; something closer to the 2014 Impala would be better.

Its too bad it will only come in a 4-door sedan.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

Not sure many like the SS nameplate on this car but it looks like we are stuck with it. It just lacks creativity and imagination on GM's part. Not to mention further confusing the nameplate with so many Chevy's to have SS as a trim and performance option rather than the name of the car. Terrible decision IMO.

I would have been ok with Commodore SS over just SS.

Not that we can gather a whole lot from the looks from the NASCAR. Not that there is a whole lot of suspense on what the VF will look like overall just the nose and tail for the Chevy version but it looks good so far.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

Fun fact. Apparently GM has had an SS model in the past... in South Africa.

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

SS would have been ok on a Chevy supercar, kinda like the Ford GT. Not that it matters though. No one will care what it's called once it actually comes out. Finally some competition for the Charger!

Re: Chevy SS/Commodore VF Renderings

Its not really full line Charger competition. More like Charger SRT8 competition.

This seems to be the case with quotes from Mark Reuss such as:
"The only reason we brought this car over is to go racing," and "This is not a return of the Pontiac G8."
“a four-door Corvette”

"This is not a return of the Pontiac G8."

Well that stinks. Why the heck not?
