  • 2004 Fiero GT rebody concept

    Here's a concept I drew-up for re-styling the GT Fiero with a 3 inch stretch and wider track ( +2"F/+4"R).  The gun metal Fiero belongs to a fella who goes by the name "Bad Azz GT" on Pennock's Forum.  A very nice looking Fiero I must say.

      The more I look at it, the more I'm starting to like it. I'm conceptualizing a front end with fixed headlights and an '02 Grandprix type front fascia. and C5 Vette tail lights with clear round centers.
      The engine bay should definitely be updated with a newer powerplant as well; something more hightech like a DOHC V6 or Northstar V8. Maybe I should take this over to Pennock's and see what the Fiero buffs think.

            Looks too much like ever other Grand Am on the road to me.. And now we are going to have to suffer through the GTO name being used on another look-alike car.

              More like a Gran Prix than a Grand Am to me.
              Even the longest journey begins with the first step.

                it looks cool.heres what i would do ,lengthen the car 4 more inches,make the back of the doorabout 2 inches longer and make the forward part of the qtr. panel shorter about 3 inches or thereabouts.and reshape the saillamp panel glass [narrower].the car looks like all the lengthening was made up in the qtr. panel,i would try to spread it out among all the side panels,maybe even cut an inch and a half out of the ft. door and put another inch onto the back of the door, and loose a little more at the ft. of the qtr..i always thought it sucked that g.m killed the fiero,ive always thought if they would have made that car a little longer and powered it a little better that it would be a better looking car than the vettes of that era.the u.s has needed a rear engined sportscar for way to long

                  That was my main idea; to re-panel the Fiero to look like a current model year Fiero from Pontiac. 
                  The late model Bonneville/GrandPrix front fascia features are very representative of the Pontiac look.  But I always thought the Fiero looked too short, therefore, the re-body is based on a stretch of 3 inches.  But why limit it to just 3" if it's going to be stretched?  What is the needed stretch length to install a longitudinal LS1 with an Audi 5000 tranny?  I will have to do a new rendering with a longer wheelbase to see what it'll look like.  The increased length will definitely open up the opportunity for many more drivetrain options.

                    I took the liberty of tweaking the modified pic a little further. 



                    Note that I did away with the side moulding to create a new body line.  I did away with the flip-out gas lid, sloped the front nose a little more and also put back a tad more rear bumper.  Yeah, it looks a little C5 Vette, but I feel it's a smooth look - I honestly feel that the Fiero should have replaced the Corvette, anyway!

                      No one has figured out how to successfully mate the LS1 to the Audi 5000 tranny yet, but I would think you would need close to an 11" stretch to do it.

                        11" at the least.
