The 2014 Pontiac Firebird convertible has all the expression of its hardtop sibling: vertical fog lightweight channels, a front air splitter, a ventilated hood.
Inside, the show car's suede steering wheel and manual shift knob ought to keep your hands pasted down, and also the Tremec shifter's short throws feel nearer to the Firebird V-6's Aisin unit than the Firebird bulkier Tremec.
That's a decent sign, given the 2014 Firebird is less fun to shift. I want Pontiac had cut the parking brake, too. It stands out, a basic plastic unit amid nicer trim.
The seats have suede-like inserts, however they do not feel any further bolstered than the regular Firebird's seats, however I had no downside with lateral support in those. Ford drop a stupefying 650 H.P. within the archrival mustang Shelby GT500, making the Trans Am's 580 horses appear, well, fast. The last GT500 fell just short of  the mustang Boss' drift-anywhere dynamics, thus we tend to hope this Shelby has simply more additional power. Either way, the 2014 Pontiac Firebird has a shot at being so much fun to drive, that we tend to hope to try it out early next year.
