Well, we told you we spotted one over in Ann Arbor a while back. But while our camera wasn't quick enough to take a snappy pic of the SS-flavored Chevy HHR, Chris Doane's of Priddy's pride of spy photogs was. And here's what they've told Car & Driver about the Super Sport version of Chevy's not-a-PT Cruiser:

"The hopped-up HHR will don Chevrolet's ubiquitous SS moniker, but unlike certain cars bearing those once-hallowed letters—namely, the nonsupercharged Cobalt SS and the outgoing Malibu SS—the HHR SS will mean it, powered as it will be by the 260-hp, 260-lb-ft, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder found in the Pontiac Solstice GXP and Saturn Sky Red Line mated to a six-speed manual transmission."

That's nice and all, but given the vehicle's only built for front-wheel drive, that power boost will more than likely create a heck of a lot of torque steer. Still — for lovers of the PT Cruiser HHR, we're assuming this'll be some good news.

Oh GOODY. Wait, didn't Chevy say they were going to cut back on the "SS" usage? This is the perfect car for a fat suburban douche who is going to put Harley Davidson sticker on the back, doesn't own one but thinks watchin "American Chopper" is a perfect substitute.
