2014 Pontiac Trans Am?

Came across this web site...
http://www.2014transam.com/2013/01/p...s-in-2014.html

Could be a test website to see people's reactions?


Kind of looks a bit like a stretched Solstice; anyway, I like it.

There is a link for Spy Photos.

Spy photos look nothing like the concept picture. I believe that the Firebird/Trans Am is never coming back, it died with Pontiac.

This.

If there was any chance it would come back it would have been with the camaro...

Does anyone remember the "sometimes, if you're good in a past life you come back as yourself" add campaign?

Thats just dumb! How can you have a Trans Am without Pontiac? Whats next the new 2014 442 Cutlass? Spy shots are meaningless, this can won't see the dealers cause there are no more dealers!

Looks to me like some college kid set up the website for his graphic design class, which would explain the concept car. And the spy shots look a lot like the Firebird conversion I've seen on a red Camaro here in Houston.

They've been building those "Trans Am's" since the new Camaro came out. They also use the Camaro to build the new GTO and 442. They're nothing like the car pictured in the 1st post.

Yea, that's not going to happen. Like others have said, how are going to have a Trans-AM when there is no Pontiac?

It's crazy to think of Trans Am or Firebird returning without Pontiac, but Dodge (Fiat) is going to bring back the 'Cuda in the next couple years without a Plymouth.
It could happen (though I don't think it will).

Thanks for the fun post though.

^ The only thing with that is, Dodge will be ending the Challenger's run, and bringing the Cuda in as it's replacement. I really can't see GM discontinuing the Camaro, just to bring it back redone as a Trans-AM. I would love it, but I just can't see it happening.

Although, if Pontiac was still around these days I would probably be driving either a G8 ST or a new Trans-AM

I know there was a real Ford Cougar for Europe came badged as the Mercury for North America but seriously, that could happen if this becomes an actual trend. A trend that really defiles/desecrates what these cars actually stood up for. If that's the case then GM never should have thrown Pontiac under the bus so to speak. It's not the same under a different "Brand Badge" and it upsets me very much. I mean what's next the Dodge Belvedere or Fury? The Ford Continental as its new flagship sedan once Lincoln goes under? Leave these good names to rest unless you're bringing the Brand back.
