About Pontiac Fiero
Pontiac makes and sells the Pontiac Fiero, which is a mid-engine sports car. It was the first two-seater coupe for the brand and the first mid-engine sports car made by an American company between 1926 and 1938. It was designed by George Millidrag and Hulk Aldicact. Composite panels were used to make the Fiero. At the time, it was something new. Other cutting-edge parts of the Pontiac Fiero were the headlights that were hidden and the stereo speakers that were built into the driver's and passenger's headrests. 370,168 units were made in the five years that the product was made.
The Fiero was designed as a two-seater sports car with an all-new chassis. In 1978, the young engineers succeeded in presenting the Fiero concept as a fuel-efficient four-cylinder model. It was more like a two-seater than a muscle car. When the prototypes took shape, the body line parts were more reminiscent of a Ferrari or Porsche than a typical GM car. Limited budgets influenced the design, especially Aldicact's dream of a high-performance vehicle with parts like an aluminum V6 block. The Fiero was redesigned with an economical version of the 2.5L four-cylinder Iron Duke. Fuel consumption at the time was impressive for a 2.5-liter engine. But thanks to the three-speed AT, highway fuel economy was 32 mph.

The engine's central location was originally chosen to reduce drag and vehicle weight, which in turn reduced fuel consumption and provided handling, traction and braking advantages. As part of the cost-saving measures of the time, tires, brakes and suspension parts of the Pontiac Fiero were borrowed from other chassis, such as the X and T chassis. On the Pontiac Fiero, the rear cross member parts were attached to the "steering knuckle," although they were hard-mounted to the crankshaft and were only there to keep the rear wheels in line. Public expectations of the Fiero were high, with its mid-size configuration and aggressive styling reminiscent of exotic mid-size sports cars.
The 1985 Pontiac Fiero went on sale in January 1985, when the GT model was introduced. All three models and four colors from the previous year were still available. It was mated to a modified Muncie four-speed transmission. The five-speed Muncie transmission became the standard on V6 models. Modifications were made for models with four-cylinder engines. Fourteen-inch wheels were standard, and the SE model had a front and rear aerodynamic spoiler for the GT. The hydraulic clutch system was revamped with a new pump and cylinder units, and the optional air conditioning system received a lighter compressor and condenser. All these Pontiac Fiero parts contributed to the vehicle's driving characteristics.
