14: 1991 GMC Syclone
While it’s not a sports car on paper, the GMC Syclone was iconic in a lot of ways. This little truck was faster than most sports cars of the ’80s and ’90s. The 1991 GMC Syclone was a limited-production vehicle designed to show what the platform could do. Right on the heels of the 454 SS, the Syclone fit right alongside the drag racing Chevy. Its 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds rivals some sports cars of the ’80s and ’90s, and the no-frills design of the Syclone is cheap to maintain.
GM put a lot of design into this platform and the truck is very durable. Unfortunately, the Syclone was only released in a two-door single cab configuration. But GMC later released the Typhoon SUV based on the Syclone. This truck is every bit an important piece of GM history, and if you’re a fan of the GMC lineup, the Syclone should be at the top of your wish list.
