2009 Chevrolet Impala SS, or Not: Emerging Market Muscle?

Michigan plates, rear-wheel drive, 6.2-liter LS3 V8 under the hood — one would hope — and double esses across its hind quarters. We'd be tempted to think it's Chevrolet's version of the Pontiac G8 and Holden VE Commodore. But soon-to-be car site Motive — partially constructed by one who brought you the sadly defunct MPH — says it's more likely an Omega SS for the Brazilian market or a Lumina SS for the Middle-Eastern market. Plus, it's got the Holden "VE" badging, which makes us doubt our distaste for kangaroo sausage. [via My.IS]
