1992 Pontiac Firebird

1992 Pontiac Firebird History



Final year for third generation platform. 1992 provided few changes in the 1992 Pontiac Firebird models. Mid-year tuned port injected cars received blank throttle body plates rather than the "TUNED PORT INJECTION" plates of prior years, and black painted valve covers rather than the previous years silver components. The end of the L98 in the Corvette led to rough cast runners finding their way into L98 birds. Some '92 Firebird models received special rubber snubbers on the rear hatch frame designed to make the hatch more stable. Very few 1992 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am's, GTA's, and 1992 Firebird Formula's were produced this year as some buyers were waiting for the new 93. Firehawk was introduced. Built by SLP, the car featured a modified L98 350 and a ZF 6-speed manual transmission. Only 25 Firehawks were built, with sticker prices in the $40,000 range. Below are the specifics:

  • 11 of the cars had the "Competition Package" 3 of the cars were produced with aluminum-block engines 4 of the cars were painted colors other than the mandatory Red. One was aqua, one was white, one was blue, and one was green. One car had T-Tops One car was a Trans Am Convertible. This was also the last 1992 car built. The 1992 option code for an SLP car was B4U.
  • Although the last car produced in 1992 is listed as car #27, only 25 Firehawks were produced. Car no.'s 18 and 23 were cancelled and never built.
