It’s no secret that the Chevrolet SS won’t be produced once Holden shutters domestic production in 2017, but will it have a successor?
According to a recent report from Motoring, the Chevrolet SS might not see a successor at all while rumor has it that the American automaker could simply give its front-wheel drive Impala model SS badges once the Zeta-based sports sedan ceases production. Though GM has hinted in the past that the Alpha rear-wheel drive platform could serve as as the foundation for an SS successor built in the U.S., it appears that it’s off the table especially with increasing CAFE regulations.
Most recently, Chevrolet added a manual transmission option to the 2015 Chevrolet SS, which is priced from $46,740 including destination. Production on the Chevrolet SS has been limited to 2,500 units per year and through October the company has managed to sell 2,281 units.
