The Pontiac Grand Prix is an automobile that was produced by the Pontiac division of General Motors. First introduced as part of Pontiac's full-size model offering for the 1962 model year, the Grand Prix name was also applied to cars in the personal luxury car market segment and the mid-size offering, slotting below the large Bonneville in Pontiac's model lineup. The Pontiac Grand Prix was replaced by the G8 for the 2008–2009 model year. Production of the G8, however, ended in June 2009. The Pontiac brand was dissolved in 2010 as part of GM's Chapter 11 reorganization.
The first front-wheel drive W-body Grand Prix coupes were built in mid-1987, and released later that year for the 1988 model year. Grand Prix was Motor Trend's Car of the Year for 1988.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the 1997–2003 Grand Prix an Acceptable overall score for their frontal impact test.
