According to Reuss, the Chevy SS is “a four door Corvette”, and the American automaker will produce as many as it will sell. Chevy has no plans of setting a production volume for the new SS but did state that it’ll be relatively low-volume, possibly between 10,000 to 15,000 units a year. But of course if the demand for the high-performance sedan is there, the automaker will have no problem fulfilling those expectations.
The Chevy SS will be manufactured in Australia and will be based on the Holden Commodore. At the end of the day though, the SS will be a halo for Chevrolet and the American automaker is importing it so that it can go racing.
“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.”
