1999 Pontiac GTO Concept
Pontiac spent decades producing Firebirds and Trans Am, leaving the GTO to the history books. Sadly, for such a specific muscle car like the original GTO, the market was gone. But most muscle car fans never forgot the timeless style and performance of the GTO, which was the original muscle car.
So, at the 1999 Detroit Auto Show, Pontiac surprised everybody with a fantastic concept they named the GTO. It was a modern, aggressive muscle car that drew a lot of attention from the crowd. Also, it showed Pontiac there was a lot of people who wanted to see the GTO make a comeback. The GTO concept was a pure styling exercise, but General Motors realized they had a market niche they could fill.
