Welcome to the 1989 20th Anniversary Turbo Trans Am Website.

1989 marked the Trans Am's 20th exciting year. To celebrate the occasion, Pontiac developed the 20th Anniversary Trans Am. This all white Trans Am was chosen to pace the 73rd Indianapolis 500 Race, marking the third appearance by Pontiac at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 1980. This car proudly met all demanding Indianapolis Pace Car requirements without any mechanical or technical modifications.

The 3.8 liter SFI fuel injected V6, with its turbocharger and intercooler, stands on the cutting edge of engine technology. With its computer-controlled Garrett turbocharger set at a maximum boost of 16.5 psi, this THM 200-4R four speed automatic transmission-equipped V6 develops 250 horsepower at 4400 rpm and a maximum torque of 345 ft. lbs.

Each 20th Anniversary Trans Am is equipped with a special heavy-duty brake system. It also has a specially designed fuel tank derived from IMSA (International Motor Sports Association) Showroom Stock Competition. Inside the fuel tank is a baffle surrounding the fuel pump that keeps a steady supply of fuel to the pump during sharp turns. All in all, the 20th Anniversary Turbo Trans Am embodies the Pontiac slogan "We Build Excitement."
