    You had to be there to remember – and to understand – so here’s a refresher. In 1964, group of young Pontiac engineers created the GTO by pairing an expensive big-car’s engine with an inexpensive medium-sized car – thereby creating the first mass-market muscle car. Which was mass-market because it wasn’t just about muscle. That had been done before, by Chrysler (letter series cars) and Oldsmobile, too. What made the GTO different – and dangerous, in the view of a certain kind of killjoy – was that it was cheap. Or at least, affordable. You didn’t have to be a...

    Earlier this month, a Chevy dealer went online and discussed seeing a glimpse of the mid-engined Corvette. While that is exciting – and not a surprise – he also noted a performance-electric vehicle that is in development, adding it looked very much like a crossover. In March, Ford asked us to imagine a four-door Mustang SUV – and we did. It also got us thinking. If Ford’s thinking of putting the name on an electric SUV, is Chevy following suit? So, what we have here is what such a performance -electric Chevy crossover could look like if the automaker decides...
