2017 Trans Am Plug in Sports Car
If you grew up in the '90s, then you probably knew about the Pontiac Trans Am. The supercar, which boasted a top speed of more than 160 mph, was the poster car of its time ( Smokey And The Bandit ), gracing the walls of young boys who grew up obsessed with Power Rangers and Tim Burton's Batman.
Now, Pontiac has unveiled its supercar for the 21st century. Called the 2017 Trans Am Plug In Hybrid Sports Vehicles, this 487-horsepower gasoline-electric hybrid achieves a terminal velocity of only 200 mph, a good deal less than its legendary predecessor; however, Pontiac says the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid Plug In Sports Car can go from 0-186 mph a full 5 seconds quicker than the 2017 Firebird. How's that for progress?.
The 2017 Trans Am Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid. It can travel over 6 miles on electricity before the twin-turbo V8 steps in.
Only a small number of 2017 Trans Am Hybrid models will be produced, and each will cost more than $38,000. Still, we're hopeful Pontiac will one day employ its hybrid technology in all of its vehicles.
