I havn't seem a TA that cool since Smokey and the Bandit.
I'm glad someone at GM is fianlly seeing the light.
However, are you sure it will be available in 2007? I thought GM was looking at production in 2008 for an '09 year model.

Concept only, but it would be built off of the new camaro platform so it would be easy for GM to move forward with it, and would be wise of GM I think it would be a big seller.....if they build a quality car with some HP and don't screw up the design....I am already losing faith, this is a lot to ask of GM these days.
All I have found on it is a small blurb in the new Hot Rod mag.

GM will probably decide to go with FWD at the last minute to save money!

Looks like a cross between a Mustang and a Camaro. I like it.

I would prefer a 1968 Front end for obvious reasons.

Never cared for the late 70's T/A style. Early 70's yes. But it does look better than the Camaro.

Have to agree with weirdbeard, I think they're making a mistake trying to go old school somewhat from the firewall back and getting weird on the front with the Camaro concept. Looks to much like a matchbox car.

I like this guys style on his 1968 Firebird. Take something like that using the new platform... IMHO.

Looks too much like the camaro. However that body design suits a trans am better. Maybe GM should just scratch the camaro, perfect this trans am design, and make a new camaro that isn't so stupid.

Oh wait its GM they only make crap now.

I can not express how much cooler that is (at least on the outside) than the Camaro concept.

That camaro concept is pretty cool inside, but they need a little more heritage, and a smidgen of innovation, on the exterior.
