Produced between 1983 and 1988, the Pontiac Fiero was a mid-engined sports car offering sharp styling and a range of innovative technologies. Now, with the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8 stealing headlines left, right, and center, one can’t help but wonder what a modernized Pontiac Fiero might look like as well. Now, one digital artist is answering that question with the following renderings.
Coming to us from Oscar Vargas, a.k.a. wb.artist20 on Instagram, this contemporary Pontiac Fiero rendering brings the ‘80s style of the original two-door into the 21st century. Let’s start in front, where we find a somewhat familiar wedge-like fascia, but now with lower, wider proportions. The primary intake is complemented with red inner styling blades, while additional red trim bits can be found in the lower styling lines of the doors as well.
Rather than the pop-up headlamps of the original, the modernized Pontiac Fiero uses slim LED lighting elements, keeping the front fascia styling nice and clean. A slick racing stripe runs up one side of the hood, once again with red striping to match.
Large, split-spoke wheels take up the corners, with low-profile rubber tucked under the fenders for a slammed stance. The roofline is low, leading to wide rear pillars that fall into a rectangular rear end. This modern Pontiac Fiero also boasts a pair of side intakes with black inserts. Whether or not these are functional is a matter of the imagination.
Finally, the rear end is characterized by a single rectangular tail lamp section similar to the original Pontiac Fiero, and includes a single red inner graphic, enhancing the car’s visual width even further. Dual exhaust tips are housed in the lower black fascia insert, boasting a chrome finish that matches the wheels.
Overall, the look definitely recalls some of the lines seen on the modern Chevy Camaro, but with the right bits and pieces to trace the DNA back to the Pontiac Fiero as well.
