|Chevy SS: mythical and rare|
Best case, that’s about 400 cars a month. The Toyota Camry sold 45,000 cars – in August. The Camry is the best-selling car in America and sales should top 400,000 this year. The Ford Fusion isn’t far behind and with production ramping up at a second plant, Fusion hopes to challenge Camry next year for the No. 1 sales title.
The Camry and Fusion have nothing to fear from the SS in the sales race. Built in Australia, the SS won’t even be sold at all Chevrolet dealerships. Instead, sales will be focused in areas where the Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro have done well, mainly Florida, California, Texas, Michigan, Illinois and the Northeast.
Not sure any of this matters. NASCAR race cars long ago lost any relationship to their production counterparts. Just find it interesting GM would put its NASCAR marketing dollars behind the SS when it plans to sell so few of them. Especially when the new Impala is getting rave reviews and the Malibu also is doing well. Both previously represented Chevrolet in NASCAR.
Oh well, I’m sure the General knows what it’s doing.
