Dedicated to the Preservation and History of the Pontiac Fiero
In the early '80s, the Big 3 were in a slump producing mundane hatchbacks, bloated beachwagons, gas guzzling Suburbans, and the occasional sports car. GM needed help - fast. Chrysler was on the verge of the next big thing - the mini van, and Pontiac was the shot GM needed. In short, they needed EXCITEMENT.
The design of the Fiero came when GM needed better fuel economy, but the engineers always saw the future of their car. They knew that if they had enough time, it would grow into something awesome. And it started well right off the bat with the 1984 Indianapolis Pace Car. Breaking records and putting Pontiac into the spotlight, the Fiero became the little car that not only could, but did.
In the end, many factors were to blame for the short production run. But the car lives on with timeless lines that still look great even by today's standards. The car, despite being 20+ years old, still could sell today with only minor interior and engine upgrades - much the same way it did back then. All in all, it was an excellent vehicle that started the resurgance of the kit car industry as well keeping GM alive.
