If you were hoping for a Chevrolet Malibu SS, keep dreaming as company has no plans for any performance models as of yet.

The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu may have Camaro-inspired taillights, but that doesn't mean the car will feature Camaro-like performance.

Speaking with eGMcartech, lead engineer Mark Moussa said the Malibu has a sportier design but "as far as what the future holds, in terms of opportunities for a sport package, we don't have any plans currently... but who's to say." Furthermore, Moussa downplayed the possibility of a V6 engine by stating the four-cylinders operate "within the realm of a V6."
