1984 Pontiac Fiero

The Fiero’s makers couldn’t decide whether they wanted a sports car or a fuel-efficient commuter. In the end, this lack of identity and severe cost-cutting killed Fiero’s chances at success. General Motors bought the engines in bulk, which meant they were poor quality. The rest of the car was essentially built from GM’s spare parts bin. When the Fiero debuted in 1984, critics called it “overweight and underpowered.” When engine fires became a problem, potential customers found other cars to buy.

  1. There were so many good kit car bodies available for this platform…

  2. Not very cool, is it?

  3. Beautiful but firey

  4. this is bad?

  5. Quite the contrary, the Pontiac Fiero is a very cool car. It’s the only mid-engined, 2-seater sports car that Detroit ever produced. The 2.8L V-6 GT solved the “underpowered” problem. (For “underpowered”, just drive a 1st generation Mustang / Camaro / Challenger.) Engine fires pale in comparison to Toyota’s “unintended acceleration” debacle. Get rid of Aztecs; bring the Fiero back :0)

  6. Loved driving this car. My dad owned one as did my first boyfriend.
