1988 Pontiac Fiero Overview

1988 was the only model year T-tops were an option for the Fiero through dealerships and the only year a yellow exterior color was available from the factory. The '88 Fiero featured a 2.5-liter, inline-four base engine rated at 98 hp and 135 ft-lbs of torque, or in the Formula and GT models, a 2.8-liter V6 rated at 135 hp and 160 ft-lbs of torque. Despite the body of the car being all composite, underneath the Fiero had a fairly heavy spaceframe, which meant it still weighed in at around 2,700 lbs.

The four cylinders were downright slow, while the V6 could manage 0-60 times from 7.5 to 9.0 seconds, depending on the transmission. I am not aware of a top speed ever being posted, not officially anyway. If you have never driven one of these cars, I invite you to find one and take a short drive. If you enjoy sports cars at all, it will probably end up in your driveway.

This car was always only a mid-engine experiment, and it received way more than its fair share of bad reviews. But in my opinion it turned out to be a great success. I really wish that this car could have found its way into today's market.

In 1988 only 26,402 Fieros were produced, of which 6,849 were the GT model, 13,910 were the base 2M4 model, and 5,643 were the Formula. I am really sorry to have seen this model hit the chopping block.
