2014 Chevrolet Sonic - Sonic Challenge Accepted

Oct 11, 2013

We at IT pride ourselves on the cars we feature, and the projects we build. With that said, we've gotten a bit cocky over the years in declaring our abilities to build just about any brand or model car with a final product that's cooler than anyone else could or would imagine. We even went to the extent of saying we can make any unfavorable, unpopular car as cool as any other in the scene.

Well, with all that said, we were propositioned to build a '14 Chevy Sonic. Because of the Sonic's newly released status, the car is unknown to many within the import community, but that didn't stop us from ruffling some feathers when we decided to build one. Why build a Sonic, you ask? How about a factory turbocharged engine model with a six-speed manual or an estimated 29/40 city/highway.

For once we're pulling out all the stops to build a compact domestic car that will end up being just as cool as a Japanese compact. We plan to use domestic parts, in a tasteful, import car fashion sort of way. This is not your typical Camaro or Corvette; we've seen those a million times before. Stay tuned as we tackle our Chevy Sonic in the next few issues. We promise, it's going to be as cool as any import you've encountered in our magazine.
