After a while without it present, we are now again going to see this great car. New 2016 Pontiac Trans Am is being prepared for the market. There are a lot of people saying it is a lot like Chevy Camaro and that is actually the case. These two are part of a platform sharing project that GM is conducting. This is not something new, GM has been doing it since ’67 and so was Ford. So there is a lot of tradition to this car. Its exterior, engine and interior design are going to resemble a lot to Camaro because they share a lot of things. But even though it will be based on Camaro (same as the previous version) this car will be a lot sportier and wiry than the Camaro. It will come out featuring tougher suspension, aggressive look and good aerodynamics. When this car hits the market buyers will be able to buy a car that is like Camaro, but with a much more reasonable price.
