American muscle car tuner Trans Am Depot has decided it can’t wait for GM any longer and has resurrected the iconic 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge itself. Based on the latest version of Chevy’s Camaro the tuner is showing some humour in naming its creation the GT9 Goat.
The teaser images of the faux-Pontiac reveal a specially made nose piece with a split grille and a reworked bonnet complete with air scoops. At the rear, there’s new tail lamp and bumper designs as well as a restyled deck with an extroverted wing. The characteristic Judge side stripes and decals are included and quad tail pipes and special alloy wheel options complete the retro-inspired look. There’s no word yet if there will be any kind of upgrades to the cabin fit out or the mechanical underpinnings of the Camaro.
Trans Am Depot has announced that its GT9 Goat will be available for order in the next few months. The company released an official statement saying “The 6T9 Goat concept was created by designer Kevin Morgan to capture the look and feel of the classic ’69 GTO Judge. The 1969 GTO is considered by many to be one of the top ten muscle cars of all time. This modern day version incorporates the look of yesteryear with the modern convenience and technology of today.” (more…)
