The Pontiac Firebird (third generation) is an American car produced by Pontiac between 1981 and 1992. It was introduced in the 1982 model year alongside its corporate sibling, the Chevrolet Camaro. These were the first Firebirds (meaning “firebird”) to feature factory fuel injection, a four-speed automatic transmission, a five-speed manual transmission, a four-cylinder engine, 16-inch wheels, and a hatchback body.
The third generation Firebird consisted of three models: Firebird, Firebird S/E, and Firebird Trans Am. The Firebird was the base model that matched the Camaro Sport Coupe; the Firebird S/E is the luxury version; and the Trans Am is the high performance version.
The 1982 Firebird was completely redesigned, with a modern look and a lighter, better handling car. The windshield angle was set to a dramatic, more aerodynamic 62 degrees, unlike the Camaro, the Firebird’s bumpers were integrated into the design of the front end, and for the first time it had a large, glass-enclosed rear trunk. It differed from the Camaro and previous Firebird versions with electronically controlled retractable headlights and a rounded hood and front fenders. The Firebird retained hidden headlights until the end of full production in 2002.

A prominent figure in the film industry

The third-generation Pontiac Firebird has been featured in many movies and TV series, including Starsky and Hutch, Kobra, Fugitives, The Wrong Mans, The Lawyer and Stung. Some of these used the Trans Am version of the Firebird, which was the highest performance. The Firebird Trans Am became famous in the series Knight Rider, where it played a car with artificial intelligence called KITT. The Firebird Trans Am also appeared in the movie Rocky IV, where it was driven by Rocky Balboa.
The Firebird Trans Am is an iconic car that evokes the atmosphere of action movies and series of the 80s and 90s.
