No that's Utes (El Camino style truck/car things). Business up front, party out back:

Well it looks nice in a showcar type of way, but it's still a Cobalt underneath

But if they make it handle like a ss, definitely not a bad starting place...

Nah, that's not like my FIero at all. Theirs has two front motors and one rear engine, similar to what Porsche has run in their endurance racer. Their two motors are 30 kW combined, my single motor is 85 kW!

They are probably similar in that they are both available in a quantity of one. However, I am willing to bet that thing cost a little more than $2000 to build, and I also bet that they haven't beat the snot out of it on a race track or driven it cross country.

No, Utes are party up front, business out back. It's to balance out the Mullet.

Wish GM would bring the Holden Ute Redline to the US. There was talk about it in 2010 as a Chevy, maybe resurrect the El Camino name.
