Chevrolet 140S Concept

I know this is not news. This concept was shown back in 2012.
But I just saw these pictures again and though: ” I really like this!”

Why didn’t they do anything with it?

Sell it as a Cruze Coupe, or something. With the 2.0 Turbo, it would make a great successor to the Cobalt SS.
It was based on the Cruze/Volt/ELR platform. Which explains similar proportions to the Cadillac.
Maybe that’s why? It looked too much like it?

No matter what its just too bad….

Maybe for the next generation?

  1. OK.

    Looks like the ass end of this car inspired the current Impala. I really like the looks of this coupe, too!

  2. Its a Chevy version of the current Cadillac CTS coupe. Would have been a mistake to start making too many Chevy versions of Cadillacs ( like Suburban/Escallade; DTS/Impala)

  3. No it is not based on the RWD CTS Coupe, at all.
    It is based on the smaller FWD Cruze.

    Here is the official word from GM:

    "Chevrolet Tru 140S, the second Chevrolet concept is a front-wheel-drive, "affordable exotic" four-seat sporty coupe.
    The three-door hatchback was designed to be an attractive-yet-affordable sports car. Shown in an all-new matte white with Chevy performance chrome wheels featuring crossflag emblems, Tru 140S is designed to look confident, exotic, expensive and fast.
    Tru 140S is based off the same platform as the Chevrolet Cruze and the groundbreaking Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle with extended range."
