2005 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)
I had a WRX before the SS. Although the WRX runs better test numbers, everyday driving wasn't as fun as the SS, because there wasn't much going on below 4000 RPM. I don't know about everyone else, but American engines always hold a place in my heart because of low end torque. L.E.T. is what I find fun when I'm driving around. I drove an S2000 a while back and although it was a "refined" car (whatever that means), I didn't feel that great about it because just driving around, it was like driving an old Civic. Why? Because you have to rev that engine up to the sky to have fun. High RPM is cool for the track, but I'll take torque from a car like the Cobalt SS when I'm going to the store.
