I hate to say it, but that caprice sucked ass, or maybe it was that fact that DUH rutledge was driving it. Put f$#in tanner in it.

That FORD TURDrus was freaking fast, twin turbos!!

I thought the Caprice was looking pretty good.
Hell, I'd buy one.

It just looked bad, no lights, no GM pursuit decals, it was just a car that can do a burnout, didn't even look like a cop car. Disappointing GM C- for you on the show parts.

Are they still planning to make an SS out of the Caprice PPV? I heard it was going to use the 6.2L LSA from the Camaro.

Not likely, as of now i read they will only be building fleet cars, no plans for a consumer car.

Too bad. Guess we will have to wait until the PPVs hit the market used. I bet they will go for a pretty penny too.

Sounds like it could have been the driver. Besides the Caprice is NA and still throws up decent numbers. Means there is plenty of room for improvement. Plus, Motor Trend as of May this year seems to indicate that GM is going ahead with a PPV-based SS for 2014. Here is hoping: http://www.motortrend.com/features/auto_news/2012/1205_2014_chevrolet_ss_rear_drive_performance_sedan/

If they sell it at 25-30k it will work, but the PPV version is 32k the SS will be 40 and who's going to pay that this day and economy.

All the police around here won't even look at the caprice, it's 8-10k more than the chargers.

I'm a GM guy, but I have no faith in GM at this point.

... a friend of mine sold 90% of the FWD Police Impalas in NH since 2009. He told me the same thing when he started pitching the PPV

It's too bad the PPV can't out price the cheaper FWD police vehicles because I really do like that thing. IMO I still think you're gonna get what you pay for, I would wager the PPV is going to have much more longevity over anything FWD. I guess that makes sense for police departments though, they only need them to last to 80k? reliably then they auction them off.

Shame, 5-10 years from now I'd like to see fleets of PPV's being sold off for cheap. Who doesn't like cheap V8 RWD GM's? With an LSx even!

The CVPI's in my town have (low miles, year old cars) 200K and the older cars like 2009 models have 450K-500K. There are town official cars that are the old black and whites resprayed with 600K. Good luck getting any deals at my towns police auction! affraid

Anyway, it is too bad! I'd like it, just with different wheels.

Shame no one is buying them... the motor pools don't want to deal with the complexity of an AWD Twin Turbo Ford...
They're liking the Caprice because it's the same price for V6 or V8 and doesn't have the 'Glass floor' the Charger has. Apparently Chargers undercarriage is very fragile.

The SS is going to be based on the NEW Zeta body.

Holden just released the FINAL current Zeta platform upgrades (the 2012.5MY)




Rumor mill is saying that this is the direction of styling for the Chevrolet SS:


and I'll just toss this out here because it's an El Camino...

Most of the decent GM stuff seems to come from Holden. Camaro, Vette and the truck series are solid though. I still can't get myself to drive anything but a bowtie, but I hear ya, GM ain't what it used to be.
