I had the opportunity to see the Chevy SS Pace Car yesterday at Car Craft.



The car looks a LOT better in person than it does in the official publicity photos. Is it as aggressive looking as the G8? By no means. But, it doesn't look cheap. There are definitely some edges and creases that are more obvious in person than they are in the photos.

Now, the real question is: why can't we actually get one in this blue color? That color is gorgeous!

That said, I can't afford one, so my G8 and I will have a LONG and prosperous relationship.

Thank you for the insight. I truly hope that an in-person viewing and test drive will change my opinion. The first time I drove my G8, I felt as if I had slipped into a European mid-sized sport sedan with an incredibly refined and comfortable interior to compliment the aggressive Pontiac exterior styling I have loved since I was a kid. (My first Pontiac was a '79 Trans-Am that I bought back in 1984, so I am a little biased.) I guess I can't expect the SS to have a similar impact, as it is not from the Excitement Team. I still want to drive one...

I just hope that the SS is a huge hit for GM. They need it!

If anything, I think G.M. priced themselves right out the door on this one. I just looked up the 2014 Impala on Autotrader and the prices on them are outrageous! The Impala ranges from $25,194 to $42,335. I would assume the SS would be around $5,000 more {give or take a few hundred} than the top of the line Impala making it $47,335. What do ya'll think?

Adjusted for inflation, the SS is selling for the same price as the GXP, yet you are getting a LOT more car for the money.

Think???

Official pricing was released several weeks ago! No speculating needed !
For $10k more, you can have a Vette! Couldn't say that with the GXP.

I do agree with Slizzo though. Your getting a lot more car with this!

I'm a big G.M. fan, but I would never buy any car for $47,000 plus. That goes for the Corvette also. Call me cheap, but you can buy 3 used performance cars for that price. You can have a base model 98' Corvette, a 02' Camaro Z28 and a 05' GTO for less than $47,000. And they all look better than the Chevy SS.
