Rear Drive Chevelle Coming?

Postby InlinePaul » Fri Apr 05, 2013 2:17 pm

Article suggests it is off same platform as other manual tranny offerings and so hopefully a new Chevelle would not only be rear drive, but also be available with a manual transmission!

I'm a Chevelle fan and this doesn't look like I pictured a reincarnation of a Chevelle to look. A bit disappointed.

Aside from the having-a-trunk part it seems to bear a stronger resemblance to a Chevette...

It kind of looks like a pug crossed with a bull dog. I'm not sure if this is good or bad.
