This Pontiac Firebird Concept Will Blow Your Mind

Once popular Pontiac Firebird was produced from 1967 to 2002, and even though it is no longer available on the market, many people are still fascinated with this car, creating concepts and renderings. It was a pure pony vehicle, and it competed against the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.

The Firebird was offered with six- and eight-cylinder engines and an RWD configuration while its most potent version produced up to 330 horsepower. Even though it had been in production for 35 years, Pontiac had to discontinue the car, while the entire brand collapsed shortly after.

It has been 15 years since the Firebird rolled out of the plant for the last time, but that didn’t stop designer Kasim Tlibekov to create a 2017 Firebird Concept. He named it the Pontiac Firebird TT Concept where the TT stands for a biturbo engine, but it is its appearance which will blow your mind.

The exterior is completely black with that sinister aftermarket wheels and wide body kit. But the beauty of this concept is that it has a lot of similarities with the Firebird produced in the 1970s and 1980s when it was in its second-generation. The details which you can immediately recognize are the rectangular fascia and split grille, whereas a sloped rear and sharp side profile remind us of the modern Mustang and Camaro.

The rear end of the car could be considered unique with retro cues such as a split taillight feature and window louvers. And with a rear wing and a large diffuser, this Pontiac Firebird is ready for the track! The designer wanted to keep the information about power to himself and let us guess, but four-, six- and eight-cylinder engines would likely be taken from the Chevrolet Camaro and packed under the Firebird’s hood.

This Pontiac Firebird concept looks really fascinating, but it will remain just a concept. At this moment, GM has no plans to bring the model back to life, and we will have to deal with it. What do you think of this rendering?
