All High-Performance GM Vehicles On Indefinite Hold

Illustration for article titled All High-Performance GM Vehicles On Indefinite Hold

GM has just disbanded its High Performance Vehicle Operations, putting all high-performance projects on an indefinite hold. This means no more new "SS" Chevys, V8 Colorado and V-series Cadillacs.


According to a report from Automotive News, there are no plans for high-performance versions of any of the company's upcoming cars. It doesn't stop current vehicles from getting high-performance variants — so rest assured all of you out there looking to buy a Camaro SS (Wert).

This is, of course, part of the Carpocalypse and GM's viability plan. Though this can be part of the GM of the future, this is part of the depressing GM of the present.
