Pontiac was a well-renowned American automobile brand. It first achieved popularity with the release of the Chief in 1926, which became the top-selling six-cylinder vehicle in the US. Pontiac became known as an affordable and reliable brand under its parent company General Motors, and was admired for its distinguishable visual elements such as the split grille and the silver streak running over the hood.
In the 1960s Pontiac transitioned towards performance sports cars, producing the GTO in 1964, which is considered the original “muscle car.” Several years later the Firebird achieved similar success, becoming an American icon over the years.
Despite Pontiac’s achievements, the company succumbed to the 2008 financial crisis and discontinued production in 2010.
