2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS and Corvette ZR1 still coming

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The High Performance Vehicle Operations (HPVO) of GM, the department responsible for their top sports cars such as the Cadillac 'V-series' and Chevrolet 'SS' models, is going to be shut down.

This move sent ripples of concern in performance circles who believe that GM's present and future performance vehicles could meet their end here including the 2010 Camaro SS.

GM, however, allayed concerns with regards to the Camaro SS stating that cars like this and also like the Corvette ZR1 and Corvette Z06 are regularly engineered and do not go through HPVO.

These cars are not in the list for cancellation, GM explained. Other models, particularly the CTS-V and other performance saloons are part of the CTS lineup and they will continue to show in the imminent future.

The CTS-V model will, according to GM spokesperson, continue though the model run regardless it being an SS Cobalt or an SS HHR. Other carmakers are also cutting down on production of niche cars.

For instance, Ford has also temporarily stopped its SVT product development and Chrysler won't be producing any SRT product for its most current models in the near future
