1984 Pontiac Fiero (Best)
1984 marked the year the first mid-engined Pontiac ever hit the market. The Fiero had many issues with the design that centered around the engine placement. There were engine fires, and the performance of the first models was not that great. But GM worked on the design and issued many recalls that rectified the problems. The Fiero was also an official Pacecar for NASCAR racing, as GM was looking to increase awareness of the new design (via Classic Car Database).
One of the main problems with the Fiero for many consumers was that it was a two-seater. Aside from that, the Fiero was also only available with a single engine choice. If you were looking for a high-performance solution, you wouldn’t find it here. But the Fiero had a lot of advantages, and the driving characteristics were top-notch. When it comes to historic Pontiac models, the Fiero should not be overlooked as it was an excellent sports car.
