Pontiac Trans AM WS6
By the early 2000s, the Firebird/Camaro combo was outdated with its live rear axle and big weight. While the market wanted more modern and lighter muscle cars. The 2002 model year marked the end of the road for Firebird, and Pontiac decided to go out with a bang. Introducing one of the best, fastest, and most powerful Trans Ams ever made – a menacing WS6 version (via Hagerty).
The WS6 was a handling package on Trans Am available before. But in the 2002 model year, it represented the best of what Pontiac had to offer. With the venerable 5.7-liter V8 engine with 325 HP, a six-speed manual transmission, and numerous suspension upgrades. The 2002 WS6 could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. Proving that Pontiac still knows how to make a brutal and lightning-quick muscle car.
