The Toyota 86, Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ have shaken up the entry-level sports car market and GM North America President Mark Reuss wants a piece of the action.
Speaking with Motoring, Ruess said a Toyota 86 competitor "would be a great entry for us" and it's on his wish list. While he didn't confirm the model is ready for production, Ruess said an entry-level sports car could be based on the rear-wheel drive Alpha platform that underpins the Cadillac ATS.
The executive also revealed that the company is only planning on selling between 3,000 and 5,000 Chevrolet SS' annually. Those numbers are surprisingly low, but Ruess says the SS is an experiment to determine if large rear-wheel drive sedans will strike a chord with North American buyers.
