The SS Dolphin is the hybrid “Corvette” you never knew you wanted

Americana is alive and well in China: Be it my buddy getting paid ¥100 an hour in his ex-pat days to teach the son of a government official’s mistress how to speak English with an American accent (meeting at the local Starbucks, ‘natch) or Songsan Motors’ latest creation. The latter is, ahem, heavily influenced by Chevrolet’s first-generation flagship sports car. Your eyes do not deceive you—the SS Dolphin is indeed Songsan’s turbocharged, plug-in-hybrid-powered take on the 1958 Corvette.

 

Maybe we aren’t so very different after all?

Never liked the '58-'62 'vette ANYWAYS, why would I think this abomination is any different. Now, if they did a '56-7... 🙂

Just another knock off............  no future for real car people.

This imitation is not flattery, it is theft and mockery.

Umm, extreme no thanks!

Pit Crew

No thank you...on every level, looks, technology, hybrid (especially hybrid).  Seriously ugly doesn't begin to describe this thing. What if Dr. Frankenstein had created a Mickey Rooney clone?

1st big problem; "Made In China".  That eliminates any interest.

Why don't the chinese just buy the rest of GM then they can make the real thing with genuine GM licenced stickers on it and get the proportions right.

Passenger

Took a beautiful design and made it butt ugly.
