1990 Pontiac Grand Prix Turbo Coupe Test Drive
For fans of the ‘Excitement’ Division, going from third in sales in the US Market, to extinct in 18 years is hard to grasp. Especially considering as recent as 1990 they were making unique, one year only editions of the corporate ubiquitous GM10 platform. The Turbo version of the Grand Prix initially debuted as a coupe, and later offered in a sedan. Touting spoilers that “…hang from the car like Spanish moss from an oak tree”, the look was aggressive and handsome, and as it “turned more heads than its exotic European travel companion” you can be sure the boastful body work impossible to silent. Showing off functional hood louvers, spectacular 2 place bucket rear seats, HUD, an ASC developed Turbo version of the universal 3.1 v6, and a rear suspension sure to leave the ground when braking hard, the Grand Prix has the power handling features to back up the claim “I’m exciting!”
Unlike the song playing on the radio “i wanna be rich” by Calloway, you don’t have to be so, when looking for one of these, if you so desire. What you do have to be is lucky. Lucky to find one.
