About Pontiac\'s Second Generation Trans Am Model:
Pontiac had an excellent run with the basic design of the second generation Trans Am that started in 1970, but all good things must come to an end with 1981 marking the final year of this icon. Luckily for automotive enthusiast, Pontiac decided to go out with a bang. The Turbo Trans Am offered an eye sight into the future of performance, with technology that seemed so new then and is now common place in our everyday drivers. Sadly this year also marked the end for Pontiac manufactured engines under the hoods of our beloved rides, shortly after April of this year GM would result to Corporate engines which are just Chevrolet blocks, for all their vehicles, except for the Turbo Trans Am. The horsepower ratings of the 4.9L Turbo engines where a realistic 200 horsepower and 340 Lb/ft of torque. The previous year\'s 210 hp rating seemed a bit optimistic, and the performance numbers seemed to support this. Even at 200 hp, this would still be the highest horsepower rating for a Trans Am until the debut of the Tuned Port engines in 1985 and not much lower than the famous 6.6 Liter big blocks from years past.
