The Chevrolet Chevelle SS? Say It Ain’t So!!

Hopefully This Rendering ISN’T An Indication Of What The 2017 Chevy Chevelle Will Look Like!

Rendering of 2016 Chevelle Concept

Hopefully This Won't Be The 2017 Chevy Chevelle SS

We’re all for American muscle here at Autowise. Daily, you’ll see the Big Three featured in various forms of modern or classic power. And each of those three are doing throwbacks to their heritage with new releases on old cars.

Not sure what kid did this Chevy Chevelle SS Rendering. Oh God, don’t let this thing out in public.

We’ve seen bad ideas come to life from Chevrolet before. The HHR for example. And the SSR. Sinfully ugly cars that should never have hit the streets.

This rendering looks like a bad dream combining an early eighties front grille and headlights and a failed attempt to recreate a late sixties fastback. The only thing missing is a chunky chrome bumper to round out the grotesque appearance.

The body lines aren’t actually that bad (aside from that god-awful fastback). The wheels are sharp and the color scheme is palatable. I can’t find any other positives about the appearance.

When it comes to powertrain, it really doesn’t matter if the car has 650 horsepower. Without eyeball, there won’t be anyone buying it. Likely you’ll find an engine selection of V8’s similar to the Camaro, but who cares?

What other classic cars will Chevrolet butcher next? Hopefully not the El Camino.

I have been wrecking cars for as long as I've been driving them, but I keep coming back for more. Two wheels or four, I'm all in. I founded GearHeads.org and then built and ran AutoWise.com until selling it to Lola Digital Media in 2020. I look forward to watching AutoWise grow as part of the AllGear group.
