PONTIAC MERA Ferrari 308 For Sale (1987)One Of The Rarest American Cars Is A Counterfeit Ferrari 308 , 247produced only one in Europe
You'd be forgiven for thinking the car above is a Ferrari 308. It certainly looks like one, but - believe it or not - it's actually a Pontiac. It was the brainchild of Bob Bracey, owner of Michigan-based Corporate Concepts, who thought the mid-engined Pontiac Fiero - once it was given a 2.8-litre V6 in 1985 - would be ripe for a tasty re-body.
A Ferrari 308 was chosen to provide inspiration, and after two years of development, the Mera was born. This is no aftermarket kit, though. What makes the Mera interesting is that punters could only obtain one by purchasing a Fiero new and speccing the Mera conversion, which was offered as an option by Pontiac dealers. IT is not kit car!!!
