From 2012 onward, Trans-Am Race Company, LLC, has managed the series. They will manage the series until at least 2016. They are looking to "bring the series back to its glory years". Their plan is to get away from the new, three-class format and return to the pony cars that made the series famous.
The series has also established a media partner, GoRacingTV. Select markets will also be able to view Trans Am races on MAVTV. GoRacingTV is a website providing highlights of various racing events.
It was announced on November 17, 2011, that a new Ford Mustang was in the works for entry into the series during the 2012 season. The car will use the 302 cubic inch (5 liter) engine from the production model.
With a GGT win at Mid Ohio, Dodge garnered its first Trans Am victory since 2001.
