The 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT, cost nearly $4,000 more than the base model, came standard with the high-output, 140hp, 2.8-liter V-6 and dual exhausts, a Muncie-built Getrag five-speed manual transmission, staggered-width 15-inch diamond-spoke alloy wheels hiding four-wheel power disc brakes, an AM/FM/cassette stereo and a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Major alterations arrived in 1988 when the Fiero's front and rear suspensions were substantially upgraded, all brake discs were vented and the GT's V-6 engine received an internally balanced crankshaft for greater smoothness.
The Pontiac Fiero was cancelled after 1988. And while it never threatened the Corvette's performance domination, the 2,700-pound V-6 GT acquitted itself nicely against the competing two-seat, mid-engine Toyota MR2 and front-engine Honda CRX Si; according to automotive journalists of the day, five-speed manual-equipped Fiero GTs ran 0-60 in 7.9-8.1 seconds, while automatic versions averaged 9.0 seconds in the same sprint. The quarter mile was dispatched in just over 16 seconds, and top speed was about 120 mph. And while more than 400,000 Fieros were built during their five-year run, only ten percent were fastback GTs; 17,660 were built in 1986, 15,968 in 1987 and a mere 6,848 emerged in 1988.
