The Legendary Pontiac Trans Am Firebird Is Making A Comeback

Published

on

The legendary Pontiac Trans Am Firebird has been discontinued for some time now, but thanks to a company known as the Trans Am Depot, there will be a 2021 model for the vehicle.

Trans Am Depot consists of a group of car enthusiasts who make brand new custom Pontiac Trans Am Firebird models. The company was able to secure the exclusive legal rights to the Trans Am, which has allowed them to make products just like the original vehicles, with some fresh twists as well. The company has teamed up with Hurst Performance for this newest project.

The brand new 2021 Pontiac Trans Am, which is being called the “Bandit Edition” is set to be unveiled at the New York Auto show. The creators have called the vehicle a modern representation of the legendary 1977 Special Edition model, which was one of the favorite Trans Am models.

The 2021 Pontiac Trans Am is going to be extremely rare, with the company only promising to produce 77 units, making it one of the most limited edition Firebirds of all time. The vehicle has even been endorsed by legendary actor and car enthusiast Burt Reynolds.

The interior of the car will feature all original parts from the 1977 version, as well as modern fifth-generation Camaro features. However, since this is intended to be modernized, the car will have a bit more of a rounded shape than it did in the 1970s.

The vehicle will have an 840 Extreme Performance Package which will be combined with the 7.4-liter LSX V-8 engine and a 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger. The car will have 840 horsepower and can accelerate from 0-60 mph acceleration in about 3 seconds, with a top speed of around 200 mph.

The model will also be available in both automatic or manual transmissions. The official release date for the vehicle has not been announced yet, but that is expected to come sometime in September. The price tag for the car will be about $115,000.

Mark Horowitz is a graduate of Brandeis University with a degree in political science. Horowitz could have had a job at one of the top media organizations in the United States, but when working as an intern, he found that the journalists in the newsroom were confined by the anxieties and sensibilities of their bosses. Horowitz loved journalism, but wanted more freedom to pursue more complex topics than you would find on the evening news. Around the same time, he began to notice that there was a growing number of independent journalists developing followings online by sharing their in-depth analysis of advanced or off-beat topics. It wasn't long before Horowitz quit his internship with a large New York network to begin publishing his own material online.
