More Turbo!

Today I read that Chevy has announced the 2008 Cobalt SS Turbo – 260hp, 260ft/lbs, all likely under-rated from the factory to keep the insurance rates a little less than mortgage like.  Personally, I’m happy to see a turbo in any car, but when they’re coming in a factory GM product it only makes me hope that one day they’ll come to their senses and pair a V6 to a turbo ala the Buick Regal.  I used to own a 1986 Buick Regal T-Type, unfortunately I lacked the funds or the facilities to restore it (it’s currently driven by a teenager and pulling 10 second quarter miles).  I could only imagine what 20 years of advanced engineering and design could bring us should Buick pair a turbo with a fat Chevy V6.
