These HHR spy shots arrived at about the same time as sales figures for the far more expensive SSR pickup revealed that Chevy¬Ěs initial retro offering is suffering through a brutal sales slump. As of June GM had sold 5442 SSRs, or about one-third of planned annual production, and had a six-month supply on hand.<p>Next comes HHR, which seems to be a name in keeping with the SSR family (SSR stands for Super Sport Roadster), but it just stands for Heritage High Roof.<br></i><p><IMG SRC="http://autoweek.com/files/weekart/2004/0802/chevyhhrfront2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><i>Piggybacking on the successful formula pioneered by the Chrysler PT Cruiser, HHR carries retro styling cues, in this case from the 1949 Chevrolet Suburban, built on an existing small-car chassis. The underpinnings are from the new Chevy Cobalt. Also like the PT, the HHR power comes from an economical 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the one that produces 170 hp in the Cobalt. Naturally, this Suburban throwback/PT clone comes with a flat load floor and utilitarian cargo space with flat-folding rear seats.<p>Production starts a year from now, with sales beginning in 2005. GM initially projected sales of 100,000 HHRs annually, but that might be tempered a year from now depending on how many SSRs are still on the lot.<br></i><p><IMG SRC="http://autoweek.com/files/weekart/2004/0802/chevyhhrrear.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://autoweek.com/files/weekart/2004/0802/chevyhhrfront3.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Source: <A HREF="http://www.AutoWeek.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.AutoWeek.com</A><br></TD></TR></TABLE><p><IMG SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/boardpics/2004-6-25/2461323-SmilinGoata.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/boardpics/2004-6-25/2461323-SmilinGoatb.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Continue the discussion here.
