$3,950 off … I’ll take two
That discount, along with the world class dealership experience Kia is known for, this should go quick.
If it’s the real deal, he should take it off the website and target one of the major collector car auctions after things settle down
It’s the real deal…apparently, the Kia owner is a collector, and he snagged this from DeLorean’s estate when he died via auction.
Upon further reading, the theory that Chevy killed it to protect the Vette is mostly speculation
So did Chevrolet’s fear of hijacked Corvette sales really kill the XP-833 program? Collins admits, “It’s not for me to say. I wasn’t privy to those discussions. But it is fair to assume Chevrolet was not happy to see the car.” Before we throw too many rocks at Duntov’s ghost, let’s remember that none of the competing two-seat sports cars got very far at all. Chrysler’s XNR died when Virgil Exner left in 1962; the Mustang I ballooned into the sporty-but-not-a-sports-car Mustang; and Shelby sold a paltry 1002 Cobras in its five-year production run (654 small blocks, 348 big blocks). Maybe the sports car hysteria of the early '60s was overblown.
from what I understand, there was always a long rumored “rule” that the Corvette had to be the fastest car in the GM stable, at least stock as it left the factory. Not so sure that still holds true, but back then, the Vette was the king.
Think of all the farts still trapped in those seats from 1964!
Why even bother with discount at that price???
That might have been an urban legend or it might have held true for a brief moment in time.
By the late 60’s, not just Pontiac and Olds, but Chevy itself was packing as much motor into Camaros and Chevelles as possible … in 1969 both those had faster 1/4 mile times than the vette
Very cool to see those pictures and the history of the car.
That is more discount than the Tellurides!
Also, did anybody see the 14 mile Solstice?
I’m surprised GM or a museum hasn’t tried buying it yet. Seems like a large part of Pontiac history
GM wants cash. Not pontiacs
“The owner passed away in 2006 and put the banshee on the market.” - You’d think he would take it with him…
