Description

The Pontiac Banshee is a line of concept cars designed by Pontiac. Four of these "dream cars" were fabricated as design exercises beginning in 1964. They were intended to establish exterior and interior design themes that would be modified for production versions of Pontiac sports cars.

Known within General Motors as the "Banshee IV", this car was unveiled in 1988. The two-door, four-seat Banshee IV had a sleek and sensuous futuristic design. Its fiberglass body was painted bright red, while its triangular hood was matte black. A 230 horsepower fuel-injected, single overhead cam V8 engine powered the rear wheels. A heads-up display system (HUD) projected information about speed, engine RPM, and fuel level on the windshield in the driver's field of vision. The dashboard featured video displays and numerous buttons; the steering wheel alone contained about twenty. The dual rear wings were also adjustable. Like its predecessors, it was intended to establish exterior and interior design themes that would be modified for the production version of the Pontiac Firebird. The Banshee IV successfully influenced the overall appearance for the fourth generation of the Firebird, as well as extending to the fourth generation of the Chevrolet Camaro.

A vehicle heavily modeled after the Banshee IV appeared as the "Knight Industries 4000" in the Knight Rider 2000 (1991) sequel TV movie, although a customized 1991 Dodge Stealth ES was actually used. The Banshee IV can also be seen in the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II.

This diecast model is an accurate representation of the Pontiac. One major difference is the partly hidden rear wheels on the real vehicle and the fully exposed wheels on the diecast model.
