The Fiero has always been a commuter car trying to look like a Ferrari. Some say that was the car's biggest downfall; Awesome styling mixed with less than awesome performance. The Fiero was an excellent car in 1988 when it was cancelled, and in 1990 there were serious plans and even a prototype vehicle of a Fiero "Sports Car" with a rumored V8 powerplant. The project of course never made it into production and was scrapped.

I realize there are already 2 other Fiero concepts in this competition and I should be more original, but hey. Im a Fiero lover and owner so I have the right to ;)

Here she is

Updated version with no wing below.

good start but where is the front?

I don't think the wing looks good.. try losing that or make it go completely across the decklid

Great rear! Now show us full frontal...

I'm a big Fiero fan as well and would love to get my hands on a '88 GT. I wonder if Kappa could engineered to accept a mid mounted engine?

nope, the new lotus europa s. nice chop, i'd really like to see a front view. is there a window over the engine, like the cayman, or is it like the old fiero, where the engine area's open?

The europa originally had the window covering the engine bay but i did my best to make it look old scool with the bare decklid

Good concept! I like it! Very similar to a 90's Ferrari though in the rear...

I love it - mainly because, as you said, it has a Ferrari look to it.. One of the main reasons the Chrysler 300C sells so much is because it looks like a Bentley.. For a fraction of the price, you can drive a car that looks like you make a million dollars a year. That's what I liked about the Fiero. It looked like a Ferrari but didn't cost anything in comparison.. There's nothing wrong with that! Nice work...

And, yes.. I would like to see the front. :)

I agree, people want to look like a million bucks without paying that much. This car really does that.
