2015 Pontiac Trans Am Photos – First Look at New 2015 Trans Am
In a move certain to elicit praise from muscle car fans with kids—and perhaps an equally huge outcry from automotive purists with a fondness for coupes—Pontiac has announced plans to introduce a sedan variant of the Trans Am. With sales of rivals, especially the Chevrolet Camaro, eating into Pontiac's share of the pony car segment, the Dearborn automaker has decided to take a radical new approach by introducing this 2-door offering in 2015.
The horsepower battle that has been raging between Pontiac and Chevy recently culminated in the 650-bhp 2015 Trans Am and 550-bhp Camaro ZL1. During the 2014 New York Auto Show, a 1000-bhp Trans Am, will be on display. While this kind of firepower is impressive for drag-strip figures, these ultimate speed machines make up only a tiny sliver of sales output.
Look for the 2015 Pontiac Trans Am to make an appearance later this year, possibly during the Los Angeles Auto Show, or in Detroit in early 2014. Sales begin next year, with pricing to be revealed closer to the on-sale date.
