I doubt there will ever be a Pontiac rebirth unfortunately. Maybe we can wish for a special edition car, like the transformer edition cars; however I wouldn't get my hopes up for that either.

This car has been out for several years, since 2011 I believe maybe 2012.

I have no skin in the game, but I have a long time friend at Exxodus Pictures that I met at SCCA autocross school in the late 90s. In late 2009 I got a phone call asking about who in the Detroit are could build some one-off cars based on the 2010 Camaro SS. I didn't even see a concept but I introduced my friend at Exxodus to a business acquaintance at Classic Design Concepts. The Firebreather is the end result

Love it or hate it the car is the concept of movie writer and director. This was a something he sketched on a napkin and then was able to bring to fruition with the help of CDC. The build quality is top notch and they have built them on both SS and ZL1 platforms. It is not a rebirth of Pontiac

Because of my aforementioned relationship with both companies, my reputation as a racer and instructor and more likely my wiliness to do it on short notice I was invited to drive a Firebreather on the Bull Run in 2010 from NY to Las Vegas....Through a comedy of errors, scheduling, cars being towed/impounded in NY I was finally handed the keys to one at Michigan International Speedway (MIS). This was my 1st time behind the wheel of a 5th gen and my test drive was doing 140+ MPH on MIS in the car.....I then piloted it to Chicago, Omaha...so on. I loved the supercharged power, ran down some "supercars" and had a blast, but I really disliked the greenhouse in the car as it felt really small and the car felt heavy..........3 years later I purchased a SS/1LE, go figure.

Tonight is the premier for the movie in Detroit and I look forward to it.

I was at the premier last night.

The movie was good and creepy.... The car gets a lot of screen time.

Couldn't care much less about the movie, but would buy that car in a heartbeat! I love how my Camaro looks, but that would make a hell of a Trans Am! Too bad Pontiac is dead.

If I could afford I would like a car exactly like it. In the trailer(spelling might be wrong) parts of the movie made in my home town of Monroe Mich.
