Q: What does GTA stand for?
A: Grand Tourismo Americano (or Grand Touring America, in English). 1987 thru 1992 Trans Am GTAs received the L98 5.7 liter (350 ci) TPI V8 (like the Corvette). The GTA came with light weight 16 inch diamond spoke alloy mag wheels and gold "Trans Am GTA" badges. The interior had new bucket seats (optional on the regular Trans Am). The 5.0 liter (305 ci) engine was also available in the GTA with a 5 speed manual tranny, but this required engine deletion of the L98 and had to be special ordered directly from Pontiac.
