2013, or the 2014 model year to be more precise, seems to be the year of the small block V8 for Chevrolet. They’re going to launch not only a new Corvette sportscar powered by the stuff, but also a brand new Silverado 1500 truck.
They will also be joined by the Chevy SS, the first rear-wheel drive Chevrolet-branded sedan sold in America in a while. The SS will make its debut on the track as well, in the 2013 NASCAR series.

Although the SS is basically an Australian Holden Commodore with a different body, General Motors North America President Mark Reuss has high hopes for the car and says it’s like a “a four door Corvette”.

No production figure has yet been set, though relatively low volume is expected, somewhere between 10,000 to 15,000 units a year.

“We’re thinking about the Chevrolet showroom,” Reuss said. “We have no sedan that is a high-performance sedan. That’s the void that the SS fills. We’re not going to rank order of performance by model or any of that stuff. The Corvette will naturally always be the fastest high-performance thing we do. When you start laddering performance, it’s a very dangerous game.”

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
