13. Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2
Most domestic car buyers were surprised when Pontiac introduced an interesting 2+2 package for its popular luxury coupe in 1986. It was a muscle car the company lacked since the late ’60s. But, best of all, it was an interesting version of the Grand Prix, which was a boring car in the ’80s.
Similar to the Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe, the Grand Prix 2+2 used the same platform, rear glass and rear spoiler they intended for NASCAR races. Unfortunately, Pontiac didn’t provide the 2+2 with an exciting performance for street use since all cars got the 305 V8 delivering 165 HP. However, the Grand Prix 2+2 handled much better than the Aerocoupe. That was because it had gas-filled shocks, stiffer springs and sway bars, as well as high-performance tires, which were all a part of the standard package. Pontiac produced this model for two years in which time they made 1,225 cars.
