10. Chevrolet SS -- est. $35,000
After a few years on the sidelines GM will be getting back into the rear-wheel-drive large-sedan segment. The lust-worthy Pontiac G8 may be a distant memory but The General is not deterred by its market failure. The curiously named SS (Is it a ship? Is it the Nazi Schutzstaffel?) packs a fire-breathing 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers 415 horsepower with an equal measure of torque. Throw a six-speed automatic transmission into the mix and this car should be able to scamper from a standstill to 60 miles an hour in about five seconds. Not too shabby. Pricing has not been announced at this point but we’re guessing it’s going to cost around $35,000, a couple grand more than the departed G8 GT, but hopefully even less.
