Default Project X is an EV now…hmm.

I actually like EV’s on a number of levels, but not sure THAT car was the one to do. (Though it was pretty bastardized over the last 15 years)

Yeah, we know some of you will hate it, just like they did when the car first tried EFI or was changed after being in Hollywood Knights, but that means you're missing the point of Project X. The '57 Chevy has always existed to change and try out new things, and there's nothing newer than going electric. Last year Chevrolet introduced its eCrate program as a way to give hot rodders options.

You see, that's what makes Project X so unique. It was never designed to be finished, just to keep changing with the times.
Nuff said.

Poor old Project would now get its ass handed back to itself from a tesla. Or a tuner car. LOL

Uncle Tony said it best. Yes, it was always meant to evolve, in a budget friendly, if a little high end, way.

Everybody knows the car peaked in the Hollywood Knights incarnation. It was on the path back to greatness with Hot Rod Garage putting 15s and a blower back on it.

Now, it's, as I stole from Facebook (or maybe Instagram, hell, I can't remember) and then posted in another thread, it's now Project Xcrement.

What really makes me laugh is I heard it's 340hp or something. It made 550 TO THE TIRE with the blown LS they took out. So it's slower, no sound, no excitement.

Oh, and if anyone's wondering; No, us Gen Z'ers don't like it either.

I completely understand that Project X has always been used as an experimental vehicle with many, many changes over the years, but this one feels different to me. IMHO, it feels like GM is pushing the EV thing HARD, and this was a way to get something that would be seen by a lot of car people, but it feels forced and sort of artificial. Why not instead of the EV motor, would they not have put in the new ZZ632/1000 crate engine? To me, that is way more in line with the history and theme of Project X.

Not buying it, not for a moment!
