Benefits of Driving a 2014 Pontiac Trans Am Convertible

The 2014 Pontiac Trans Am is a modern take on Pontiac's legendary muscle-car, offering strong rear-wheel-drive performance in a low coupe or convertible body style. Relative to the other pony cars like the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger, the Trans Am performs athletically, although it gives up some outward visibility for the chunky, bold design. The standout of the model line remains the 2014 Trans Am Coupe for performance and handling approaching that of an exotic car. But Trans Am Convertibles are a strong value as well and provide a different sort of fun. For the rare driver wanting to better the performance of high-end exotics, the 2014 trans Am provides outrageous horsepower numbers. While it's expensive for a Trans Am, it's faster than cars costing two or three times as much.

What's new for 2014?

The 2014 Pontiac Trans Am has been given several notable updates. Most noticeable is the performance package available on the Trans Am.
