A Brief History of Your Pontiac Tempest
When the Chevrolet Corvair hit the market to both critical acclaim and consumer excitement, executives at Pontiac recognized the importance of introducing an entry-level compact car. The Pontiac Tempest was the solution. Introduced at the Paris Auto Show in 1960, the Tempest immediately attracted the attention of automotive enthusiasts everywhere.
Pontiac manufactured its in-demand Tempest from 1960 to 1970. A redesigned Tempest hit the market again in 1987 and lasted through the 1991 model year. The earlier Tempests feature an impressive 195-cubic inch straight-four engine and are available in coupe, sedan and wagon body styles. The later Tempest models, which eventually became Grand Ams, are essentially Chevrolet Corsica compact cars.
