Default 2011 Pontiac "6T9 Goat" by Trans Am Depot



Quote:
A little over a year ago at the 2009 SEMA show, Trans Am Depot introduced a conversion kit for the Chevrolet Camaro, affectionately turning it from modern-day Bumblebee muscle to an iteration of what a Pontiac Firebird would look like. They even had a name for it: the Phoenix Trans Am.

Fast forward about 20 months and Trans Am Depot has returned for their next Camaro-based Pontiac conversion kit. The car of choice this time is the 1969 GTO Judge, although you certainly wouldn’t mistake this one for the real deal.

In any case, Trans Am Depot’s work is called the “6T9 Goat” and looking at the renderings sent over by TAD, the new conversion kit comes with plenty of styling elements, including a bespoke front end with its own split grille. There’s also a revised hood with air scoops, a new tail lamp, a restyled ‘old-school’ trunk with a small rear wing, quad tail pipes, and a new set of alloy wheels.

“The 6T9 Goat concept was created by designer Kevin Morgan to capture the look and feel of the classic ’69 GTO Judge,” Grand Am Depot said in a statement. “The 1969 GTO is considered by many to be one of the top ten muscle cars of all time. Available this fall, this modern day version incorporates the look of yesteryear with the modern convenience and technology of today.”

Hardened fans of the classic GTO Judge – and the Camaro, for that matter – will probably snicker at the thought of driving a kit version of the old classic, but as the market has shown in recent years, there are some people that will still pay for conversion kits, even if it isn’t the real thing. If you’re one of these folks, here’s your chance to own a modern-day iteration of an all-time classic. Just make sure you don’t promote it as an original.

No, just no. Id much rather have a mustang than this vehicle.

Also, the last gen GTO was a pretty good car. Fast, had decent handling which could be greatly upgraded, etc. This just looks like a brick traveling down the road.

GM needs to higher younger engineers.

The engineers and designers aren't unionized.

Good try, though! You'll get it one of these days!

It still looks too much like a Camaro. That's fine for Firebird, but a GTO should look different.

Muscle cars are lame. The only people that care about them are baby boomers.

Gm needs some hot hatches. Bring over the Opel/vauxhall Corsa Opc for a start...

I can promise you, that muscle cars are NOT lame. Having just taken a 2013 Boss 302 for a spin...There is NOTHING lame about them. When packaged right, they can be amazing. What you are not liking is the refusal to ditch the played out retro thing. I concur with that. The Camaro/Challenger/mustang can live on but they need to keep evolving. The throw back styling is just lame.
