    The Volt looks a lot like the Saab concept car that was rumored to be in the film.

    They never said it would be an autobot or decepticon.......guess we'll have to wait for spy shots to determine this bot's colors...

    ... ???





    People may try and kill me for saying this, but I'd be happy with that being Wheeljack.

    That's exactly what I first thought when I saw it. I think that's a better Wheeljack then a Mustang any day.

    It doesn't look like that Saab Aero at all, my friend.

    Anyway, here's a better picture if you ask me.

    is anyone else getting tired of seeing all these chevy's? I guess chevy has deal with michael bay but i would like to see some variety. maybe it's just me and i know car companies like VW don't want things to do with war, but i'm sure Honda, Ford, Dodge or Toyota would like to get a part of the action. i guess i'm just tired of hearing about so many chevy's in this movie

    Nope, I like GM cars and since I own a Camaro, Chevy is my favorite.

    They do have a deal, and they're also providing million dollar concepts to be used in the film for free. Don't expect them to go anywhere any time soon.

    i would have to agree with you , grimmlock! As much as we fans want, it is hard for them to get other car companies to take part. 1)requires more $$$$$$ to license more than 1 company, 2)as you mentioned above, 3) some companies just don't want to take part(correct me if i'm wrong)

    VOLT!
    BEAT!
    TRAX!
    BAM!
    POW!
    SLUGGO!


    ...come to think of it...I think I would buy a car named the Chevy Sluggo, if it ever came out. They'd sell me on name alone.

    Throw a little red and blue on that car and he'd make a nice movie Smokescreen. :D 

    But, I'd take Wheeljack, too.

    Looks like GM is finally starting to realize how the world has changed. Putting in 2 subcompacts like the Beat and Trax and a new plug-in electric car like the Volt will do a lot of good for the company over the long haul.

    The Volt definitely looks like Wheeljack more than any other Autobot. It even fits Wheeljack's "mad scientist" stereotype as the Volt is an experimental electric car. It would be something I could see Wheeljack choosing.

    However, in terms of environmentally friendliness, it could also be Hound or Beachcomber.

    I agree. Not so much because I have a problem with Chevy, I'd just like to see a wider variety (of American cars). Besides, how realistic is it that the Autobots all came to earth and chose Chevy alt modes.:tongue:  I do realize GM put up a lot of $$$ for the movie, but a variety would be better.

    I personally think it would be cool to see a Transformers turn into something like a 1940 Ford coupe or a 60's muscle car.:rock

    I qgree with you two, there is way too many chevy's in this movie. You know if the Autobots and Decepticons really came to Earth, do you think they would just hit up every single Chevy dealership in the world or would they scan the first available vehicle to "Hide" from the opposing faction and us. This is really getting redicoulos. Although I suppose the Constructicons (if they are even this movie) will show up with big Chevy logo's on them. Or maybe we should just calling the move Chevy-formers.
