Its not like theres a lot of import mid-engine cars that arent super cars, hmm, MR2, ......? Its not exactly a practical platform well suited to mass production family cars. Its just common sense, dont use words like "only" if you don't do your research.
The most significant new feature was that except for Corvair, it was the first American sports car featuring the mid-engine layout which had been mandatory for European sports cars since the Miura in 1963; and there was more breakaway technology, making the Fiero a near-revolutionary two-seater. Interestingly, there was to be no corporate Fiero; other GM divisions do not make their own versions of it.

I owned a Fiero for about 2 years - bought it used (one year old, 8,000 miles) and never had any problems with it. Nice little car, but the back wall of the cabin got a bit hot in the summer.
It was an attractive looking car, I'm sorry that GM killed it off.

They had a 5 star frontal crash rating when new...
Here's another good one for you all...The Spice GTP car.
I think I was 11 or 12 when I first sat in a Fiero at the Toronto Auto Show in 1983 or 1984. I thought it was the coolest car I had ever seen and I loved everything about it. It seemed like such a futuristic car to me at the time. Because of that, I've always kind of liked the Fiero.

Any pics or info on the '90 prototype? I would like to see a picture of it if you could post a link.
Google is your friend. Found this searching for "1990 fiero prototype".
Looks to me like some of the styling on this was used (or taken from) the Buick Reatta. I always liked the looks of the Fiero, and was close to getting one once upon a time. Then came the family - oh well.
