General Motor Corp. has announced plans to build a new convertible pickup, say US media reports (10/8/00).

The retro-looking `Super Sport Roadster` (SSR), which boasts rear-drive pick-up and a retractable hard-top roof, is set to hit showrooms in 2002.

Shown as a concept car at this year`s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the reports say that the car will be produced in low volumes as signature vehicles, attracting attention to the Chevrolet brand.
