Aqua Blur SSR Pit Crew
While taking the tour today I had the opportunity to talk to one of senior guys about the fate of the SSR. Once the fact that the SSR wasn't performing up to what they had hoped for sales wise they came up with some ideas. They realized that the price was very high and that it wasn't being marketed right so they suggested a couple of ideas that obviously didn't fly. They proposed building a lesser cost vehicle that consisted of a "Removable" hardtop and return the smaller 5.3 litre engine to the truck. That combo would have drastically reduced the price to maybe 30k ish!!! I think he mentioned making the engine size optional was mentioned also. The SSR as it stands today would still have been available for those who wanted all the bells and whistles. It sounded like a sensible ideas to them but it obviously didn't take hold in upper management. They are very proud of the SSR and really wanted to keep it alive!!!
