What is this
2017 Firebird all about?
The 2017 Pontiac Firebird is a 2+2, front-engined
coupe powered by a 311bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine
taken from Pontiac’s racecars. That makes it substantially more powerful, with

concept. ‘We always imagine it [2017 Firebird a concept] on the street,’ says
Pontiac president, ‘and that’s the same with this car’.
reveal was the first time Pontiac’s board has seen the 2017 Firebird. ‘We have
not done any feasibility on it, but my gut feeling is there’s nothing about it
that’s not possible.’ It’s expected that the 2017 Firebird will be in showrooms
in late 2016 if it’s given the green light for production.
