Dealers will order them.
That's true. On the other hand, the only options are color and whether to have a sunroof. Next question, what will be the allocation? When the G8 was introduced, mid-sized dealers were told they'd get three for the year. That inspired them to ask the moon for the first ones. Since the car was new, they did sell a few at all the money. Then, when a boatload of them were available, prices started coming down.

Of course, then they stopped bringing them in and discounting stopped.

That's good stuff there! :) Will the SS be plagued with the same issues we see on our G8s over and over and over?

Now onto the sweetest part about this ride, the engine and drivetrain. Under the hood of the 2014 Chevrolet SS will be the same 6.0-liter V-8 engine that the Holden Commodore SS boasts, which cranks out 260 kW (348 horsepower) at 5,600 rpm and 517 Nm (381 pound-feet) of torque at 4,000 rpm. The SS Performance will like come standard with the same six-speed manual transmission that the Holden does, with the option of a six-speed shiftable automatic, which features a “Sport” mode.

Don't know where this came from, but the pre-production cars are already out, spec sheets released, and everyone at GM has said, 6.2L 415HP (est) 415ftlb with 6 speed auto paddle shifter trans, no manual! Don't see them backing away from that at this point, not to mention the already disappointed masses that there is no manual and only 415HP!:wink2:

Yeah, the web site. I opened the link and searched through a number of pages and didn't find anything on the SS. Also used their search mode and didn't get it. Where did you find their take on the SS?:wink2:
