Well if you want one for yourself it's made to order.without one on the lot, how are they gonna upgrade those prospective impala buyers? I can't see them selling very many of these if you can't even go see one.
It would be stupid if they didn't have one to show people, wouldn't be surprised if that actually happens and all they have to show you are whats on papers and on video.
If they ever hope on the SS having a future, having an SS in dealerships or at least in flagship dealers is the way to go.
I wouldn't mind driving a bit out of my way from my dealer to a flagship dealer to test drive an SS to see if it's really for me
