1989 Pontiac Turbo Firefly

Fashionable, fun and fast. The Turbo Firefly sets itself apart from its fellow Firefly models in a number of ways.



Turbo Firefly boasts a turbocharged, intercooled, multi-port fuel-injected version of Firefly's 3-cylinder/5-speed manual powertrain and generates 45% more horsepower (70HP @ 5500 RPM) than the standard Firefly engine.

Turbo Firefly has been clocked at 9.4 seconds, zero to sixty, on the GM test track with a professional driver at the wheel.

Special Equipment
The car rides on P165/70R-12 steel-belted all-season radials, tires that are wider than those on the regular Firefly.

An upgraded suspension features front stabilizer bar and specific shock absorbers and spring rates.

Aero ground-effects: front and rear air dams and rocker panel skirts. Dual tail pipes.

The Turbo Firefly Exterior
To begin with, you get your choice of bright red or aquablue with colour-matched wide body-side mouldings. Other distinctive Turbo exterior touches include:

* White wheel covers.
* Body-colour bumpers and rub strips.
* Dual black sport mirrors.
* Special "Turbo" and "Intercooler" graphics on the body-side.

The Turbo Firefly Interior
As the picture below indicates, Turbo Firefly is distinguished by specific interior trim in Charcoal and special steering wheel with "Turbo" graphic. Other interior features standard in Turbo Firefly include:

* Custom Knit Cloth upholstery.
* Split-folding rear seat-back.
