    Whenever this thing becomes available and certainly interested. and spent about four cars ago since I had a Chevy SS with 3.8 supercharged engine and I like it quite well. Everything else since then has been rather lackluster in terms of performance and I do miss that. Not much of a speed driver but I do like having that power on tap.

The same eternal recipe - bring cheap sedan body and mount huge V8 on it. It might looks like family sedan, but has brilliant performance. Chevy SS is considered as modern muscle car, and it would be updated for 2017.
