  • 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 Has Sold the First 200 Chirons

At least 200 people will wake up to a new Bugatti Chiron in the driveway in the next few months. That’s how many orders Bugatti has taken worldwide through this week, the company announced when revealing a “near production” example at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering in California.

-

That event marks the North American unveiling of a car Bugatti already displayed at the Geneva auto show earlier this year and then at every venue where the monied elite gather in sufficient numbers. Of course, the reported “sales” of these ultraexotics can and do vary. Some buyers may have ordered more than one car, while several may back out after putting down their 200,000-Euro deposits ($226,000) because of a divorce, a court order, or simply because a Ford GT may arrive sooner. You never know. At least, we’ll never know, because we’re not on that list.

-

In total, Bugatti plans to sell 500 copies of the 1500-hp Chiron, for which it claims a top speed of 261 mph. It’s unclear whether that run of 500 includes the numerous special editions we expect will show up to keep the car in the public spotlight and bid for a few more gold bars from people who clearly don’t need to ask about the $2.7 million base price.

Bugatti expects about 30 percent of the supercars will be sold to buyers in the United States. There’s a good chance many of them were among those swallowing the free champagne at The Quail.
