Hooniverse Asks: What's the Greatest Trim Package To Make a Come-Back?

If you think about all the various trim packages that have graced auto models over the decades, from Z28 Camaros to Niki Lauda edition Alfa Spiders, there are some that have definitely become keepers. Some automakers have figured that out and that’s why we have seen the resurrection of such storied names as BOSS 302 and Porsche’s Speedster.
Shakespeare averred that a rose by any name would still give good nose. When it comes to cars, there are certain names that evoke reverence and history, and sometimes those names come back after a long hiatus to grace a – potentially worthy – contender to the throne.  What we’d like to know today is which of those come-back kids do you think is the greatest?

    1. The modern day Scat Pack is indeed a trim package, but in the 60’s and 70’s, it was a marketing campaign/club/performance accessories promotion. The Scat Pack Chargers, Challengers, Darts, etc. were regular production R/T or GTS models with optional decals.

  1. Because the Boss was so Boss, Chevy renamed the Z/28 to ZL1… then really brought back the Z/28 as a $75k stripper model.
    Edit – then Ford comes back with a Z/28 eater GT350 for $50k.

  2. Somehow missed the memo on the new cobra jets. Twin turbo v8’s that are capable of running 8’s with factory backing? Yeesh. These are wonderful times.

  3. ///M. Some say it’s been watered down a bit with the M division applying their moniker to pigs like the X6, but then you drive that X6M and realize pigs can fly.
    Plus, M235i…4.4 seconds to 60 with all sorts of M goodies for under $50k.
