Description
 
If youre a Trans Am enthusiast, the 1989 Turbo Trans Am pace car really is the one to own. Its still the fastest-accelerating T/A ever built, and this one, with just over 30,000 original miles, is one of the cleanest, most documented examples available anywhere. Cool, fast, and rare? Where do I sign up? This might be the most subtle GM pace car ever built, but the off-white Trans Am rocks the horsepower, and thats really all that matters. Heck, they probably tried to downplay that they stuffed the Buick Grand Nationals turbocharged powerplant into a car that could actually handle and brake properly, so white was the logical choice. The third-generation F-bodies were pretty good looking cars, particularly the Trans Am, and all the unique styling aspects are extremely well-preserved, including the ground effects and rear spoiler, which always had a tendency to crack. The paint is as good as you could expect on the showroom floor, thanks to a lifetime as a cherished collectors item, and this is one of the few that actually proudly wears its original pace car decals. Functional vents on the hood and a subtle TURBO badge on the front fenders are your only tipoff that this is a special car, but thanks to the careful preservation, you can go out and demonstrate its abilities without worries. There arent many nicer than this anywhere. A tan leather interior was actually an optional upgrade on these cars, which came with tan cloth as standard equipment. The deeply bolstered buckets are still incredibly comfortable even after 25 years and show minimal wear and tear, again attributable to owners who understood that this is an important car. The aforementioned leather interior and T-tops were the only options, so things like power windows and locks, A/C, cruise control, and a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo were all standard. In typical Pontiac fashion, there are seemingly thousands of buttons on the dash and steering wheel, but youll get a feel for them quickly enough and it all works properly; even the A/C is nice and cold. A small boost gauge was integrated into the Trans Ams standard instrument panel, but everything else should be familiar to fans of the marque. The trunk is like new and outfitted with original bags for the T-tops, because this car has every available option. The real reason these cars are special is under the hood: Buicks stunning 3.8 liter turbocharged V6. Pontiac rated it at 250 horsepower to keep from stepping on Corvettes toes, but the GM factory dyno rang up 301 horsepower on a pretty consistent basis. And as insanely easy as the turbo engine is to modify, this one remains completely stock and nicely preserved, right down to the plug wires. A 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and 1LE brake and suspension package make this a formidable car even when the roads start to twist, neatly remedying the Buick GNs lone Achilles heel. You want a fast F-body, they dont come much more wicked than this and that engine offers almost unlimited potential. As a multiple show winner, this one is completely stock and incredibly original, right down to the gold mesh-style alloy wheels, which wear 245/50/16 Goodyear GS-C tires, probably only the second set its ever worn. Fully documented with the window sticker, special promotional items, maintenance records, PHS paperwork, and other important history, this is an investment-grade Turbo Trans Am thats also completely amazing to drive.
