  • 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!

What you're looking at is the Škoda Fabia R5 Concept, a preview of Škoda's upcoming new rally machine.

Once complete, the new Fabia R5 will have big shoes to fill. The outgoing Fabia S2000 was one of the most successful rally machines on dirt, gravel, snow or tarmac, winning countless stages, rallies and titles in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, the FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Championship, the FIA European Rally Championship and others. Introduced back in 2009, the Fabia S2000 also served as the basis for Volkswagen's dominant WRC program, whose success the new Fabia R5 will be tasked with matching in the lower classes.

Škoda will be showcasing the concept at the Essen Motor Show in Germany this weekend, where it will appear alongside the rest of the brand's lineup as well as some specially prepared show cars.
