AutoHunter Spotlight: 1994 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

The end of an era for Pontiac performance


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by, is this 1994 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.

The Firebird Trans Am has been a GM icon since its introduction. Over the years the Trans Am has been raced, starred in movies, been a main character in a TV show, and has always had a huge following. Sadly the Firebird Trans Am was cancelled in 2002. With the 2010 closing of the Pontiac division of GM, we are not likely to see a Pontiac-built Trans Am ever again.

The Trans Am featured here is from the final 4th generation. While the rear axle and floorpan aft of the front seats was basically the same as the 3rd generation model, GM stated that ninety percent of the new Firebird’s parts were new. Like the Camaro, upgrades to the Firebird Trans Am include standard dual airbags, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, 16-inch wheels, rack-and-pinion power steering, new front suspension, and many composite body panels.

The seller states that this 1994 Pontiac Trans Am is was California-owned long-term and is powered by an LT1 5.7-liter V8 backed by the desirable BorgWarner six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Finished in Dark Aqua Metallic over a Graphite cloth interior, this fourth-generation Firebird is now offered by the selling dealer with removed original parts, a clean CARFAX report, and a clear title.

Features on this car include air conditioning, a Pioneer touchscreen sound system, upgraded PaceSetter headers, an upgraded clutch, and a Borla exhaust system. The addition of the headers and Borla exhaust should make the LT1 under the hood of this Trans Am more powerful than any stock C4 Corvette LT1. The Borla exhaust will also make it sound amazing.

This car is painted in its factory Dark Aqua Metallic paint with integrated fog lights, cool pop-up headlights, factory hood scoops, and integrated rear spoiler. The overall condition of the paint looks to be excellent which is easily explained by the cars low 66k mileage from new. The seller adds that the front bumper cover has been repainted and that the headlight control module has been recently replaced.

The interior of this Trans Am features its factory Graphite cloth upholstery and the car has power windows, power steering, and cruise control. Like the exterior, the interior looks great and is stock except for an aftermarket dash cover, a modern Pioneer touchscreen audio system, and aftermarket shift knob. The car includes its original Delco stock radio and shift knob.

Once thought of as just used cars, the values of these final generation Trans Am cars have started to move up in the collector car market, with the first and second generation cars often selling for more than $100,000. What that means is that these final versions of the Trans Am are still a good value, but I would personally buy one like this example now before the prices get higher.

The auction for this 1994 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am ends Friday, May 17, 2024 at 11:35 a.m. (PDT).

  1. Trans Am…With a 115 MPH speedometer…??? A non Trans Am low level rear spoiler…??? Aftermarket 98/02..Ram Air hood…All Major Red flags…🚩🚩🚩

  2. Aftermarket hood. 1994 Trans Ams didn’t have the ram air hoods. And it has the lower level spoiler. The 1994 Trans Am GT had the more desirable(in my opinion) larger rear spoiler.

  3. I also question the above comment plus the lack of use & service info. What is the actual mileage? Do you have window sticker or any PHS docs for car that would answer some of the questions. Can any of this info be provided as well as service records?
