2017 Trans Am
Manufactured by Trans Am Worldwide

A 2017 TRANS AM...HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?
It all started with a vision in the mind of a young graphic designer named Kevin Morgan from Canton PA. His idea was to recreate classic muscle cars on a state-of-the-art GM Alpha platform, the same one that underpins the 6th-generation Camaro. By 2011 he'd teamed up with brothers Tom & Scott Warmack, and Jim Dowling of Tallahassee FL, and they set out to bring this new modern-day Trans Am to life. They secured the exclusive rights to the Trans Am brand and went to work. In 2012, they collaborated with performance icon Hurst to produce the first-ever Hurst-Trans Am. This was just one of their models, of course, and before long demand outpaced supply. So they moved from their humble digs into a larger production shop in Tallahassee and now produce two models, the 'standard' Trans Am and the 455 Super duty (only 50 will be made). Each car is custom-built to the customers' specifications, with a wide range of options, including engines, handling upgrades, even T-Tops. Pictured here are two examples of the 2017 Trans Am which were on display at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in January 2018. The black one is the standard version which they aptly name the Outlaw Edition (maybe they didn't secure the rights to the Bandit brand), and the blue one is the 455 Super Duty, which comes with bigger wheels & Brembo brakes, among other optional upgrades.
2017 TRANS AM 455 SUPER DUTY
As if reviving the Trans Am name weren't enough, they also breathed life into another hallowed nameplate: the 455 Super Duty. In this modern day interpretation, a new 455 Pontiac V8 is fed 14 pounds of boost via a 2.3-liter Magnuson supercharger cranking out a monstrous 1,000 horsepower and 1,046 pound-feet of torque! Big Brembos haul the thing back down.
