The great thing about General Motors performance packages is that a
few innocent-looking letters and numbers can turn a good car into a
great one. For example, the WS6 added to this 2001 Pontiac Firebird
Trans Am makes this loaded, low mileage T-top coupe truly a premium
in-demand modern classic.
Averaging under 2,200 miles annually means this car has been driven
a little, but not a lot. So the factory black still has the nice
luster that looks good no matter if it's under the midday sun or
midnight moon. And let's face it, black is the only color for a
mean machine like this. These high-end T/As came with some of the
most aggressive details like the beastly quad intakes up front,
full body kit, and well-integrated rear spoiler that are all part
of the factory package. This is such a dark and sinister total
appearance, that it makes the rear red on the taillights and Trans
Am badging look like they're out for blood. Plus, on a car this
dark, those 17-inch factory chrome wheels really stand out and grab
attention extra attention.
The black interior keeps this dark attitude going, and adds plenty
of premium features into the mix, too. The front bucket seats are
built with terrific bolstering and finished in a supple leather.
They are power adjustable support, and the driver's one even has
power motion. Not only does this look great because this is a
low-mileage coupe, but you'll also love it because this is a loaded
machine. It has all the best features like power windows, power
locks, power mirrors, cruise control, keyless entry, steering wheel
mounted controls, and a Monsoon AM/FM/CD stereo with equalizer.
Beyond just luxury amenities, a modern classic also means modern
safety with items like dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. But your
favorite features will be the air conditioning and T-tops.
Combined, they mean you get the wind blowing through the cabin
while attacking your favorite roads... and you get to remain
feeling as cool as you look doing it.
Under the hood is the 325 hp LS1 fuel-injected V8. Ram Air means
you got the highest horsepower available from Pontiac, and this
powerful motor is the numbers-matching unit. In fact, the entire
engine bay looks like a time capsule, right down to the decals. The
lightweight all-aluminum powerhouse eclipses just about every other
muscle car powerplant from this era, and it'll return surprisingly
good fuel economy when driven with a conservative right foot. And
this powerful/useful dual nature is exactly how you should view
this coupe. It has great everyday features like a four-speed
transmission w/overdrive and power steering. So it will be easy to
add to the low odometer with some road trips. Then when you find
the back roads, the WS6 high suspension makes this a better
handler, including bigger sway bars and higher spring rates than
the standard Trans Am sports suspension. As you've seen from the
previous generations, the WS6 is a major draw in future
desirability. Add this to four-wheel disc brakes and Goodyear Eagle
F1 tires, and we won't blame you for wanting to go out and have fun
in this highly collectable car.
