The Pontiac Fiero has been subject to many kit car treatments over the past few decades, most commonly for Ferrari and Lamborghini lookalikes. However, the Mera is not some aftermarket attempt at doing so, this actually came from the factory.
The Pontiac Mera began life as a regular Fiero, but it was then modified as a Ferrari 308… sort of. Nonetheless, they are rare, and were only sold through Pontiac dealerships during 1987 and 1988. However, this 1986 Pontiac Mera is special.
There were no 1986 Pontiac Mera, execept for this one. The vehicle has surfaced on Craigslist, and appears to be the original concept/prototype used for the 1987 Detroit Auto Show as an introduction to the Mera. Furthermore, this is supported by the car’s four-speed manual over regular Mera’s five-speed units.
The kit cannot be replicated and retrofitted to an existing Fiero, which made the Mera that much more unique to the few who purchased one. Pontiac quickly discontinued the variant halfway through 1988.
This prime example has only 59,850 miles on the odometer, and everything is in working order. Furthermore, the seller retains all official documentation of the vehicle for its next owner, showing the 1986 Mera as the official vehicle for brochures and promotion.
Time will tell if the 1986 Pontiac Mera is worth $25,000, but there’s no denying this is one unique poncho.
