No, not at all. I knew it looked like something else.

it looks like a Camaro because whoever photoshopped that pic started with a pic of a Camaro... which, honestly, would be the chassis that any car called "Chevelle" would be based off of. and it would look like this:



..which is a car that you can currently buy at any Chevy dealer. it's got a V8, it's rear wheel drive, and it's called the SS... if you ever watch tv on a sunday afternoon between the months of February and November, you will see a whole bunch of cars that kinda sorta look like those with bright paint jobs and numbers on them racing on mostly oval tracks, with a couple of road race tracks from time to time:

But what's the point? The only reason to use the name is to evoke some type of brand association with Chevy's history. The car looks nothing like any Chevelle previously manufactured, so why not sell the car on it own merits, with a new name, instead of manipulating people into believing it represents something it isn't.

Food for thought; If it wasn't called a Chevelle, would you still be interested?

Frankly, I think the article is bogus anyway. There's too many models & body styles in those pics. GM doesn't spend money like that in this current economic climate. They would've announced this at least a year ago if they planned on releasing it for sale in late 2016.

Re: 2017 Chevelle SS ???

Just looked at an "SS" yesterday when we were picking up my wife's Volt.
415 HP V8, rear wheel drive. Very nice.

$50K. But it was well equipped and I do live in Silicon Valley.

Maybe for the next car.

A few people have been fooled with this one. There was an El Camino done a few months back also.

Re: 2017 Chevelle SS ???

Surely every picture in the gallery being of a totally different and obviously fake car sort of gives away that this is not real. Chinese news site rehashing old pics from old forum threads. Other places reporting it as well just means that other places are copy/ pasting without doing due diligence in the hopes of creating site traffic.
Would be cool to so see a modern take on it, but nothing in that article looks very interesting at all.
