2008 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Turbocharged (Spectre)
Last updated Oct 13, 2009
Wrote off my SRT-4 last December and needed a new car. Was looking at the Cobalt SS and Mazdaspeed 3. Unfortunately both were out of my price range. Got lucky on Auto trader one day when I came across a brand new Black SS Turbo being sold for $17,000. After some reading I learned it was one of 6 or 7 vehicles that got damaged in a bad windstorm at the factory. The vehicle was re-painted and $11,000 was taken off the list. It had the LSD and no sunroof and it was black with black on black interior so I went out and bought it. Second best car i've ever owned. My fave is still my 1992 Corolla GT-S. You would have to own one to understand the appeal and fun factor of the car.
