1988 Pontiac Fiero

1988 was the final year for the mid-engined P-body, two-passenger sports coupe called the Pontiac Fiero. The Fiero was available as a base Coupe, Formula, and GT Coupe. Pricing began at $9,000 for the Base Coupe and rose to $14,000 for the GT Coupe.

The base coupe came with the Tech IV engine with a new secondary force balancer system which helped reduce engine noise and made it operate smoother. It also had a redesigned crankshaft. The independent suspension was redesigned, along with the disc brake system. Standard equipment included radial spare tires, High-Tech Turbo cast wheels, an AM/FM stereo sound system, Pallex cloth trim, a new Camel interior color, and a new mid-year Bright Yellow exterior color. All Fiero models came with black-finished air deflectors, body side moldings, door handles and lock cylinders, a high-mounted stop lamp, reclining bucket seats, color-keyed safety belts, a compact spare radial tire, clear-coat paint, dual map lights, a dome lamp, and a Delco Freedom II battery. They also had anti-corrosion protection, a full-length console, the GM Computer Command Control system, halogen headlights with a retracting feature, a locking fuel filler door, a map pocket on the instrument panel, side marker lights, a left-hand remote-controlled sport mirror, and a multi-function control lever.

The Formula option package came with a 2.8-liter MFI V6 engine, a GM Muncie/Getrag five-speed transmission, WS6 suspension package, 15-inch black diamond-spoke wheels and Goodyear Eagle GT+4 tires. They also had Formula graphics and a rear spoiler.

GT models included Eagle GT+4 tires, Metrix cloth trim, and monochromatic exterior colors. New options for this year included black or gold diamond-spoke cast-aluminum wheels, leather seat trim and an inflatable lumber support seat. GT models had an aero package with special aerodynamic fascias, body side skirts, and controlled-cycle windshield wipers. Other features included power windows, a remote deck lid release, Soft-Ray tinted glass, a deluxe three-spoke leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel, and the choice of gold-finished diamond-spoke aluminum wheels or black-finished diamond-spoke aluminum wheels.

The Pontiac division of General Motors produced the Pontiac Fiero, a mid-engine sports car, from 1984 to 1988. This was the first two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to 1938 coupes. During its production lifespan, Pontiac produced a total of 370,168 examples. Its mid-engine layout and sports car styling made it popular, however its reputation suffered from criticism over reliability, performance and safety issues.

This particular example currently has 54,276 miles on the odometer. It has a 2.8-liter Multi-port fuel injected V6 engine backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission. It rides on 15 inch original wheels. It has power windows and mirrors, a grey cloth interior, and is one of just 241 Fieros produced in Talbot yellow.
