Yes, I believe it is electronically governed at 110 mph similar to the Saturn Ion, which it shares engine/transmission/basic platform with.

I have an 07 LS coupe, 5 speed. It gets just past 110 then governor kicks in (speedo reads like 112)

(I am not quite sure about the auto's, but...) I have the SS/SC 5-speed, and I have had it (on more than one occasion) at ~150 mph. The fastest I have had it is 155 mph, with a tail wind. But otherwise it is 151 mph, gov. limited at 5750 rpms.

not sure but i have gotten an 05 ls up to 105. I must say that it handled pretty well to. it felt really smooth, and it didnt feel like i was going to die. but if i would have hit anything (pothole, mouse, ant *lol*) i am pretty sure i would have died. lol

I dont have a speed limiter, thank you Trifecta tuning! On the dyno with calculations I maxed out at 178 mph. And by calculations they actually add in effects like wind speed and road resistance. 2005 Cobalt SS/SC Stage WTF

160 sounds high. I ran against a 2009 SS turbo yesterday with my motorcycle. I just stayed with him to see what it would do. He pulled fairly quickly to 130 and then edged up to 140 and it was over. I continued to 150 and he was fading in my mirrors. My speedo has been checked against my gps so I know it is accurate.

you hit 150 on that cruiser? are you saying your speedo is accurate at that speed cause i call BS! speedo on a bike at that speed has a flux at 10% roughly. so if your gps is accurate at 85 then ok but it doesnt work at that speed. that takes a little balls. i hit 180 on my gixxer and pulled it back. that speed is ridic

I drive a 2006 LS couple with as follows:short ram air intake, intake manifold swap, fuel rail, injectors, trifecta performance tune, header, and cat back exhaust and have pulled 120+ on a good highway

My 08 TC bone stock speedo was pegged just over 160.. GPS said 162 going down I-10 3 seperate occasions

Deff can push 120+, I know 122 and even with bad tires and needing an oil change. A few tweeks and it would be a very fun car to play around in, very quiet, and handles well, they are just really long. But I love my 08 ls.

I owned a 2006 Chevy cobalt LT and got it to 132 MPH. Took a while but got there. My cousin owned a turbocharged SS Cobalt and that thing ran 365 HP on the dyno. Not sure of the top speed but we got to 145 on a very short road.

Mine is an 05 with an 06 engine. I've go it up to 105 with my stock rims n tires but i need to recalibrate my speedo cuz I now have 17s. I've noticed my car isn't accurate. I think it now hits 109. Btw Pontiac is own by GM which owns chevy.

My 2009 Cobalt 2LT had the ecotec LAP 2.2L and the 5-speed manual, it also came with the 16" alloys and stock P205/55r/16 89H tires. The "H" designation is important as it is what determines your vehicles top speed. Since the stock tires had a speed rating H it's top speed is 130 MPH. I GPS verified 121 MPH at around 5000 RPM in 5th with a slight downhill. May have been able to increase with a longer stretch and a larger downhill run, but the engine itself was out of steam. Just bought a '14 Cruze with "S" speed rating tires, its electronically limited to 112 MPH.
