1984 Pontiac Fiero

From the “Standard Catalog of Pontiac 1926-1995” by John Gunnell and Ron Kowalke

“Totally new this year was the two-seater plastic-bodied Fiero. Displaying  little trim apart from a tiny shield emblem ahead of the front hood, Fiero was described as a ‘revolutionary two-seat, mid-engine sports car,’ the first such model built in America. The sleek (if somewhat stubby_ wedge shape want compact front area offered a drag coefficient of 0.377. Glass surfaces were nearly flush with the body. Headlamps were hidden. Flush-mounted at the rear were black, full-length, neutral-density reflex taillamps, ‘Enduraflex’ body panel skins were corrosion-resistant. Fiero used a space-frame of high-strength-steel, described as similar to a racing car’s roll cage. Rear-wheel drive, Fiero rode a 93.4 in, wheel-base and carried a 92 hp 151 cid (2.5 liter) four-cylinder engine.”

“Series 2000 got a name change, adding the Sunbird label. In addition, Pontiac offered a turbocharged engine for the 2000 Sunbird, a high-tech 6000 STE, and a high-output carbureted V-8 for the Trans Am.”

After four bad years, Pontiac enjoyed a gigantic surge in production. 1984 production = 827,576
