  • 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!

Car and Driver: Bugatti Chiron: The 1500-hp, $2.5-Million Veyron Successor’s Name, Debut Are Official

Name it Chiron, and they will come. Or name it whatever you’d like, and so long as it’s the descendant of the mighty Bugatti Veyron, the rich and powerful will toss money at you like so much confetti. We’re talking, of course, about the Veyron’s successor, which Bugatti has confirmed will be named “Chiron” and will debut at the 2016 Geneva auto show this coming spring.

We had already assumed the new Bugatti would be named Chiron—for the legendary 1920s and 1930s racing driver, Louis Chiron, who won several Grands Prix for Bugatti—and a debut at the Geneva show seemed wholly appropriate. What we didn’t know is that, despite no one outside of Bugatti having driven the new Chiron, 100 orders for the car already have been placed. It isn’t presently clear whether those orders indicate an overabundance of super-rich (remember, the Chiron should cost upwards of $2.5 million) or excitement over a super-sports car that’s expected to top 288 mph. Probably a little bit of both.

Also not lacking in Bugatti’s strata? Modesty. Besides an apparently secret push to attract the aforementioned 100 Chiron orders, the company’s president Wolfgang Dürheimer has declared that, “With the Chiron, [Bugatti] will make the best significantly better.” We suppose this means that Bugatti’s Volkswagen Group money isn’t on the chopping block in the wake of the TDI scandal, after all.
