Get out your old Whitesnake muscle shirt because the Trans Am is back… sort of. The Corvette and Chevy tuning experts at Lingenfelter have announced that they will bring a modern Trans Am to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas next week, taking inspiration from the 1971 second-gen TA. That means it will have a 445-cubic inch V8 engine under the hood making 655-hp.

The car will also get a duck-tail spoiler, fender vents, a twin-port front grille, 20-inch honeycomb wheels and the obligatory screamin' chicken. Lingenfelter also promises a retro-styled interior.

Called the Lingenfeler LTA (Lingenfelter Trans Am) Concept the car is a one-off, but there is cretain to be huge demand for the car – especially considering the popularity of the new Camaro – so a limited number of production models is a definite possibility

We'll be sure to bring you full coverage of the Lingenfelter Trans Am from the SEMA Show starting November 3rd.

Just like others, they are trying to make a second gen TA out of a car with first gen lines. Just doesn't work. Wish they would try a retro 69 TA.

Was gonna say the exact same thing as 73bird. Just doesn't flow. I respect the creativity of the design but why not go with a 1st gen design so the camaro and firebird have the same f-body similarities like 67-69s did? Would probably be a helluva lot easier/cheaper too! (front clip/rear clip/hood/wheels). Looks like some serious sheetmetal work there ($$$). Think they overthought this one. :slap:

Front fascia i great, but the rear spoil is too tall and the wheels are garbage. I would like to see the interior.

I like it, but it should have snowflakes instead of honeycombs, I never liked the honeycombs.
