Gearhead Performance Group 2010 Pontiac Trans Am – Click above for high-res image gallery

How many Chevrolet Camaro-based Pontiac Trans Am replicas can what we assume to be a rather small market support? We've already seen Kevin Morgan's Phoenix T/A revival as well as our personal favorite, the Lingenfelter 455 T/A Concept that we saw last November at the annual SEMA Show in Vegas, and now it seems that we can add a third Trans Am to the growing list of replicas, this one from Gearhead Performance Group.

One thing that certainly caught our attention that the Gearhead T/A will supposedly offer as an option is a 900 horsepower 6.2 liter twin turbo LS9 V8 engine. Besides that, we see the typical and fully expected split front grille, fender vents, ducktail spoiler and snowflake wheels. There will also be a gaud gold-accented interior option for the ultimate in 1970s style. Just add a CB radio and you'll be good to go.

      I can't believe Jeremy Korzeniewski likes the Lingenfelter concept more than Kevin Morgans Phoenix Revival. The Lingenfelter concept makes my eyes hurt, whereas the Phoenix Revival concept looks understated and almost classic.

      but, why?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Does it come with hubcaps with brake rotors and calipers painted on like in the picture?

      The Camaro looks are hard to overpower without going to extreme measures. So I can see why they did. But it has to still be good looking. Sorry, I'd rather have stock.

      I saw the Lingenfelter T/A at Barrett-Jackson. It was nice, but I think GM got the Camero so right in terms of balancing retro with modern styling that trying to make a Camero look like a Firebird doesn't make sense.

      Pontiac is dead. Wake me up when they can shovel a 455HD under the hood.

        Agree on that one.

      no screaming chicken? and wait, the way i remember my transams is white with the gold screaming chicken in the hood.... well, that's the first image that comes to mind when i think "trans am".
      btw, they should do a cameo in "jersey shore"... that would be a chuck norris riding a unicorn with a leprechaun running beside.

      My old Trans/Am belongs in a glossy coffee-table book, not as some riceboy's interpretation of daddy's old muscle car. All these lame replicas do is mock our memories. And they are wonderful memories, too.

      It's like re-reading the books you read as a teenager. You just don't do that, unless you're a glutton for disappointment.

      I hate these replicas. They're so fake. Like paddle-shifting a CVT. Stoopid.

      You can't go back, guys. Face it.

      Don't forget to check the "gold chain" option box.

      Are you sure this isn't a Batmobile replica?
        • 4 Years Ago
        this is what batman drove to high school in the 70s
        • 4 Years Ago
        I like it...much better than the other iterations we've seen.
