Pontiac of the Month

Pedja's 1968 Firebird

2019 March
of the Month

  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

The 100 km/h benchmark (62 mph) falls in "less than three seconds" while the 200 km/h barrier (124 mph) is shattered in "under seven seconds." Lastly, the rear-wheel drive P1 will hit 300 km/h (186 mph) in "no more than 17 seconds" (an impressive 11 seconds faster than its legendary <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/mclaren+f1/">McLaren F1</a>). Those blistering numbers put the P1 among a very small and elite group, with members like <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/bugatti/">Bugatti</a>, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/category/koenigsegg/">Koenigsegg</a> and <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/hennessey/">Hennessey</a> - the fastest road cars on the planet.<br /><br />If you are wondering how much it costs to embarrass a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/">Ferrari</a>, McLaren also broke its pricing embargo today. Base price, in the United States, is a cool $1,150,000.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/26/mclaren-releases-astonishing-p1-performance-figures/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>McLaren releases astonishing P1 performance figures</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/26/mclaren-releases-astonishing-p1-performance-figures/">McLaren releases astonishing P1 performance figures</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Tue, 26 Feb 2013 04:00:00 EST.
