We come to our first serious corner on Glendora Mountain Road, and the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Coupe delivers the unexpected. It turns into a tight left-hander with the haste and hunger of an import sport compact. Perhaps most surprising of all, it gives the impression of being happy to do it.

We're looking at the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and 2008 Chevrolet Corvette
Z06, but we're imagining a '68 Shelby GT500KR staging next to a Corvette
with one of the 427-cubic-inch V8s on the Connecting Highway in Queens, New
York, probably sometime during the Nixon administration. We don't know how
the cars are tuned or which driver has the better hole-shot technique, but
we're calling our street race in favor of the Vette.
You see, there's no historical basis for a close Corvette-Mustang rivalry. A Corvette of any
year is a little too fast and smart to be street racing ratty muscle cars.
It's a real sports car, the kind of car that's still fun when you start
going around corners.
But maybe it's a different story with this 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and
2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Each of these rear-wheel-drive coupes has a V8
rated for more than 500 horsepower at the flywheel.
And with the release of the limited-edition 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR, Ford
has moved in on Chevrolet's price territory. The GT500KR leaves the Ford
factory as a $46,730 GT500 coupe and is shipped as a rolling chassis to
Carroll Shelby's facility near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. By
the time the KR cruises out of Shelby's shop, it's an $82,395 Mustang.
As such, the King-of-the-Road Mustang must now contend with this
$76,920 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. And though the Z06 is a few horsepower shy of the
upcoming ZR1, it's not an easy mark. The GT500KR will have to play like a
sports car just to keep up.

"No! You did it again. Never let the car roll." That's what Mike den Tandt,
my 20-something German instrukteur, said as we caught the tail of the 2010
Porsche 911 turbo with much more than a
dab of opposite lock.
2008 Audi S5 by Edmunds' Inside Line
Audi has figured out that a coupe should be beautiful, not merely
exclusive. Even as the typical German sedan has become a beast with swollen
fenders and a massive grille, designed to bludgeon the meek out of the fast
lane on the autobahn, the 2008 Audi S5 has a different look. Its curving
contours are leaner, more expressive and more energetic.

Chevy Cobalt Power Steering Recall
***WE DID IT!!! GM ANNOUNCED A RECALL ON MARCH 1, 2010!!!
Read More here:
My 2005 Chevy Cobalt's power steering went out around the 45,000 mark. I
found hundreds of other Cobalt drivers that have had the same problem and
had to pay $900-$2500 to repair their car. GM is aware of this problem but
has chosen to do nothing about it. The only thing we can do is get
everyone out there to call the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration and let them know of this issue in hopes of a future recall.
Thanks for watching!
It only takes five minutes, so please call in!
