chevy cobalt

I dont know what to think of this car, some pics make it look good, others make it look ugly... I also think its way to high up and the supercharged spoiler isnt wide enough.. Has an ok 140 hp stock, what you guys think of this new chevy?

Not all camaros are V8's there are v4 and v6 models also.

Besides, the way i see it is that chevy stopped making the Camaro, so that they can produce a car to take the place of the camaro.

News of Camaro...

I am not sure where I saw this on a forum, but I saw a topic with many sources about a problem with the lack of Camaro production being fixed for the 2007 cars, which would mean we may be seeing a new Camaro in late 2006, we can hope can't we? I'll try and find where I saw this also.

There exist NO V4 Camaros. Get it through your head. The Cobalt is like a Civic or Integra. FWD, 4 cyl, slow pos. Not RWD, or V8.

What? They stopped making it so they could make a replacement? Great idea...

I figured there never was a 4 cylinder (much less a V4) Camaro, but this idiot claims he has a manual or something. Jeez.

New article in Motortrend says the Cobalt SS did 0-60 in 6 sec and 14.5 in the 1/4 mile.

About the 4 cylinder Camaro, you're partly wrong. There was an Inline 4 offered from 1982 to 1986. This info was taken from this book i have that lists all American cars and specs since 1930. There was no 4 cylinder for the years 1987-1992, just a V6 and V8.

Just thought I'd pitch in...

The Cobalt is kinda lacking in style imo. However the SS supercharged is a good attempt to compete with the Dodge Neon SRT-4, but I think it'll need a little more oomph to outrun it.

I don't think the Cobalt is trying to compete with the SRT-4.
