Happy Woodward! Chevy debuts 2008 HHR SS

The Woodward Dream Cruise is right around the corner on this Saturday, but Chevy is arriving early with its 2008 HHR SS model that's just been revealed. Of course, we knew an SS version of the HHR was percolating thanks to countless spy photos of development mules testing here and on the Nurburgring in Germany. Nevertheless, 260 horsepower in a tall wagon is pretty exciting, especially one that goes 0-60 in 6.3 seconds and covers the quarter-mile in 14.8 seconds at 98.5 mph.

Spy Photos: 2008 Chevy HHR SS

We've shown you spy shots of the 2008 Chevy HHR SS in the past, however these pics are the first showing the vehicle completely uncamouflaged. The high-performance version of the High Heritage Roof can be identified by its larger wheels with five twin spokes wearing 225/45R18 rubber, a deeper front grille concealing an intercooler and a big old tailpipe peeking out from under the rear valance. There's also a discrete spoil

New Viper guarantees Blue Devil's arrival

When word of a 600-hp Dodge Viper first crossed our desks, we immediately figured that the on-again, off-again super Corvette "Blue Devil" project would immediately get a green light for production. The current Z06 produces a stout 505 hp, about 5 hp shy of the current Viper's 8.3-liter V10. We knew, however, that General Motors would never let a 95-hp deficit stand. Thus, it's not much of a sur

Spy Shots: GM's super Thetas from Chevy and Pontiac

The Chevy Equinox and Pontiac Torrent, General Motors' two badge-engineered SUVs based on the Theta platform, are about as vanilla as sport utilities come. Therefore, we've been eager to learn more info about high performance versions the General has in the works. The Equinox one will be badged as an SS model, while the Torrent's will be either a GT or GXP. Both models sport larger wheel/tire combos that look neatly tucked in their wheel wells thanks to a lowered suspension. Each ute's front fas

RR of the Day: '67 Impala SS

Autoblog Flickr Pool member BLKWIDO1 submitted his father's 1967 Chevy Impala SS 396 to be featured as a RR of the Day on account of the excellent job his pops has done restoring the car almost entirely by himself over the past seven years since it was purchased, and also likely because the Greatest Generation thinks Flickr is a new type of remote for the T.V. We don't actually know how old his dad is, but we know he's old enough to appreciate a classic cruiser when he sees one. The only modific

RR of the Day: 1967 Chevy Camaro RS/SS

Kicking off Camaro Week for our RR of the Day feature's is Flickr member Kyler's 1967 Chevy Camaro RS/SS. Not only does this car exist in the upper echelon of Camaro annals, it also happened to be the subject of the very first piece of automotive journalism I ever penned, so it gets extra points from me for personal nostalgia. Though Kyler has performed many mods beneath the car's skin, the sheetmetal is nearly factory stock, as is the interior. This was a fantastic generation of Camaro design a

Chevy HHR SS acknowledged

The Chevy HHR has been quite the sleeper hit for General Motors. Through September, 85,662 units of the High Heritage Roof retro wagon have been sold, with sales up over 14% so far this year over last. That still puts the HHR about 20,000 units behind its direct competitor, the Chrysler PT Cruiser, but sales of that model are up only 5%. And General Motors is capitalizing on the HHR by introducing new variants for consumers to consider. The Damon Lavrinc

Another round of Corvette "Blue Devil" rumors

With General Motors not providing any official information on the upcoming uber-Vette, rumors continue to fly around the automotive world. Automobile Magazine weighs in with its two cents, stating that the so-called "Blue Devil" will actually carry the significantly less satanic moniker of Z07 - or maybe Z06.R (with the "R" presumably standing for "Really hazardous to your driving record"). That seems somewhat more clumsy than the Sting Ray or Super Sport/SS names t

2008 Buick LaCrosse Super a go

The 2008 Buick LaCrosse Super pictured here is a no-brainer for General Motors. Being based on the same platform as the Chevy Impala SS, it doesn't take much to produce a version for Buick that features the same 303-hp V8. The photo shows a mild mannered LaCrosse wearing the same wheels as the Impala SS and portholes on the front fender covered up by tape. The production version will likely have additional trim on the exterior and interior to differentiate it from other LaCrosse models. While it

The Chevelle Project - another fan project for GM

After reading our post yesterday about supporters at GMInsideNews creating dream lineups for General Motors, Autoblog reader Josh Oliver wanted us to know that the Cheers and Gears Underground project had done something similar called the Chevelle Project. This is no hobbled together collection of Photochopped images, but rather a complete portfolio of a possible rear-wheel drive Chevelle lineup including a sedan, coupe, convertible, sportwagon and resurrected El Camino. Pay particular attention

Shots snapped of "Blue Devil" engine

Call it what you will - "Blue Devil", "Corvette SS", or just "#%$&ing fast" - but even though we don't yet know the moniker of the upcoming ÜberVette, a clearer picture is being painted of the 650-hp supercharged lump that should propel it past most of the supercar elite. A sharp-eyed and well-connected member of the Digital Corvettes forum managed to have a camera in the right place at the right
