On October 31st, GM officially announced the end of their agreement with the Pontiac dealers, which leads to the “death” of Pontiac. Actually, this may cause disappointment among the car model’s fans, as, back in the 1960s, the brand was placed on the third place in the US, following GM brand Chevrolet and Ford vehicles, a fact that points to its glorious history.
The car model received its name from the town in Michigan and was the GM’s creation back in 1926.
Its end began last year, when the decision to stop its production appeared as extremely necessary and was taken by GM, as in the last decade failure accompanied constantly the Pontiac on the market, due to the fact that the consumers did not prefer it anymore.
Classic models, such as the GTO and the Trans-Am were spawned by Pontiac, while its peak sales were registered in 1973 with 920,000 units sold.
