14. 1988 Pontiac Fiero
Where do we even start with the Fiero? It wasn’t a performance car, and it wasn’t necessarily an iconic car either. The Fiero was the product of GM 80s engineering, and the car had some pretty cool features. This was the first mid-engined Pontiac model to hit the market ever. With that being said the car’s only competition was the Toyota MR2. Both cars had their strong suits and both cars were also very cramped. The Fiero, on the other hand, had a whole other issue which was engine fires. Pontiac later rectified this problem, but it was far too late and Fiero was eventually discontinued.
Still, the Fiero is a pretty iconic part of the Pontiac lineage. The car had one of the most unique designs to come out of a GM factory in a long time. At this point, GM was throwing everything that it had to compete with the imports. The Fiero was GMs attempt to lure younger buyers into the showrooms. The car was lightweight and featured an interesting design and had it not been for the engine fire the Fiero would live on.
