because GM fanboys drive so much better than anybody else, lol
What a brilliant marketing campaign by GM. It makes the Cobalt's name synonomus with performance and younger lifestyle without diminishing the Vette's image.
Shut up. Anything that runs slower than 13 is worthless.
as far as "fast" goes, 14.9 is pathetic
ha, 14.9 is pathetic? Let me name you some cars that are in the same area.
The Audi A8L
TT roadster 3.2 quattro DSG
Jaguar Xtype 3.0
Jaguar S type
Lexus IS 300
Benz 320 Sport
Mini Cooper S
Mitsubishi Eclipse GT
Nissan Altima 3.5 SE
Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE
Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V
Saab 9-3 Vector
Saturn Ion Redline
Toyota Celica GT-S
Toyota MR2 Spyder
VW Passat GLX
All those numbers are straight from Road and Track, ofcourse this is if the 14.9 holds up for the cobalt, which it should considering the ION redline does. Now, if you consider all of those cars pathetic then by all means your right. But I dont think any of those cars are pathetic really.
GM is notorious for under rating cars HP numbers. The 2002 Z28 was stated to have 310Hp. Dyno Tests show it was over 300 to the wheels.
Honda Accord? must be v-6 manual otherwise it's like 15.9
I didnt say that those were close to 14.9, the accord as you point out isnt, even with its "performace" variance. The fact of the matter is that this little cobalt is mighty quick, and can hang with a lot of things out of its class, including absolutly killing a lot in its class. I really hate it when people say something like 14.9 is a pathetic 1/4 mile time, that is a bunch of bs.
I agree the Cobalt SS is quick. I thought from the first line you meant those cars ran close to 14.9s.
no, they are just a handful of cars that are between like 14.7 and 16.0 or so. Pretty good compeition.
