2014 Chevrolet SS accidently confirmed by OnStar?

A Holden-based flagship?

Chevrolet recently filed a trademark for the SS moniker and now the model has apparently been confirmed by OnStar.

In an effort to promote the company's RemoteLink app, OnStar listed a number of vehicles that are compatible with the service. While that isn't terribly exciting, one of the models was an unannounced "2014 SS Performance." Shortly after the story broke, OnStar quietly removed their list of all 2014 models.

It's still a little early to speculate about what the model is, but the "SS Performance" wording seems like a placeholder for "SS Performance Sedan." This likely gives some credence to rumors that Chevrolet is preparing to introduce a Holden-based rear-wheel drive flagship in the United States.

Regardless, Chevrolet has already announced plans to enter the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with a "vehicle based on a new nameplate to the brand's lineup." Both the NASCAR and production models are slated to be unveiled later this year.

All GM cars are globally designed. The Camaro is built in Canada. The original Pontiac G8 was sold as a Chevy Caprice in the middle east.

Gm confirmed that they are going to introduce a rear wheel drive vehicle in the fall of this year. GM also stated that they will use the exterior design of this car for the new NASCAR vehicle.

I would be more excited if the SS was Chevy-born than adopted.

Nothing against the Australian autos but based on and copied from are two different things.

By now, almost no one is able to breakdown the father/son son/father relationship within GM. And they are doing well. Except,IMO, for the latest Impala(THE bastard)
