Rumor is pontiac is bringing it back for the new movie and to bank on it.

Cool the TA looks like a Corvette except really ugly, with photochopd hood scoop

Don't like the grill of the Camaro... and if they're gonna do a T/A with the screaming chicken on the hood - it needs to be bigger... don't care for the twin scoops either - liked the shakers I had on mine.

Still, I can't wait to see what a production one looks like and to drive one. May consider a purchase during the SECOND model year!

I'm usually not a Firebird fan (2nd gens were extremely hot, though) but I like that one. The fastback and tall haunches are SEX.Get rid of the hood scoops (Does Pontiac pay ANY attention to feedback about their styling? At all? Ever?) and the stupid hole/gouge/crease/whatthecrapisthat on the fender/door tops and it's pretty much perfect.

I love the quad lamp headlights.

Now, the question is:Is this really what it'll look like? Or an "artists conception"?

I think they in desperate need for car designers. They going in the right direction with trucks but cars they lacking something.

Uh...No it isn't. Not one body panel looks the same.Totally different roofline.Different b-pillars.One's fastback, the other's not.Doors are completely different.NOT the same car with different bumpers.Try "same platform with different bodies."

The T/A looks like a photshopped Vette...

Still GM garbage.

How much you wanna bet they come out with the same interior switchgear they've been using since 1984?

That'd be okay. If it's from 1984, it'll be knobs and levers. If it's from the 90's it'll be buttons for everything.

Early 90's Silverado "climate controls" FTFML.

While neither are my style, I think they could've done much worse. The overall design would work should they be coming out this year, but if they're projecting 2011, then they really need to up their game. They will be hopelessly outdated four years from now. And I agree, the TA definitely stole a few styling queues from the Corvette.

As an aside, I wonder if XAT will try to graft that front end onto their 240.

Except for that stupid golden bird and the hood scoops, it looks great. And if GM's current vehicles are any evidence, it'll be well built enough and reasonably decent inside, if not luxurious.

YAY FOR LS2.

Why is Burt Reynolds in the background of the first picture? At least I think it's Burt Reynolds.

That T/A does look a hell of alot like a 'Vette though. Sweet.

I actually don't mind it, though IMHO they need to clean up the goofy fake rear diffusers. Too busy. I find it ironic Burt Reynolds is pictured. If you compare Burt now to how he looked in the original movie, and then compare this concept to the original Bandit car, they both look like their faces have been stretched and pulled back too much...

I think if they dump the vomitting chicken hood decal, 'da car aint bad. Of course, if GM builds them as crappy as the last ones, they won't last long.

Damn I hate the look of the camaro but I am in love with the T/A its gorgeous!

If the next Nissan S car would look like that I will be first in line, even if they put a QR25DE in it.
