|The Legend Returns: 2017 Pontiac Firebird
Calling all Firebird lovers... We almost had a new 2017 Pontiac Firebird. Of course with the introduction of the new Trans Am, it stands to reason that Detroit could also bring back the Firebird for 2017. Historically, Trans Am and Firebird have always shared the same car body. So I guess it all boils down to what sort of attitude you were looking for from your Pontiac eagle car. Trans Am - practical style, Firebird - outspoken style.
However; now that Pontiac is no more, there will be no 2017 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. This is a sad turn of events. Pontiac made some very nice looking cars over the years. You do still have options, though. A couple of places in the U.S. can give you an aftermarket body makeover on your new Trans Am to look like a Firebird. There seems to be two versions of this cool new car though. There is the body style based on the "Bandit" model, like shown here. (Maybe a Smokey and the Bandit update?) There is also a body style inspired by the 1970 model Firebird. Which one is available to you and me? Personally I prefer the one based on the 1970 Firebird.
