22. Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
The fourth generation of the GM F-Body platform debuted in 1993 with the new Camaro and Firebird. The new model brought much-needed modernization to the Firebird range, as well as improvements in power, equipment, handling, and braking. The new car featured a sleek and aerodynamic styling with coupe and convertible versions that attracted more buyers.
Also, the Trans Am version returned with the powerful LT1 V8 engine with 5.7-liters of displacement and 285 HP. The engine was the same as in the Corvette of similar vintage. But since the Pontiac version had intake restrictors, it developed 15 horsepower less. Of course, crafty owners realized that their Trans Ams had a few hidden HPs, so installing the Corvette intake became a popular modification.
