Topic says it all. Found an '89 Turbo Grand Prix in a local nickel ad paper. Supposedly in good shape with no rust. Should I even consider it?

Nope. It's a Grand Prix Turbo. Only made in '89 and '90, in limited runs of 3000-4000 per year. 3.1 liter turbo V6. The car was engineered my McLaren. I remember Steve telling me about them awhile back.

supercharged GPs only came in 97+ models when the body changed.

Turbo GPs are nasty cars if you mess with them.

in 1991 Pontiac released a supercharged version of a stroked out 2.8 by GMs own machining. The original 3.1 is a McLaren debut motor specifically meant for the TGP.

The GTPs 3.1 overheated with factory means of turbo charging, and the GTP recieved a supercharger in 1991.

Lots of pontiac "First ofs" are a lie. Like Widetrack Grand Prix.. The WideTrack is 6 inches.. SIX INCHES... thinner than the TGP / GTP.

It's the shits, but I can't get this one. It just needs way too much work to justify the purchase. It's unfortunate, but sadly I'll be passing this one up.

If it's still there in 2 weeks and he's still taking 1200 for it, I might change my mind though.

Got any links to back that up? because as far as I know 91-96 GTPs did not have a supercharger on it.

Ah, you may win this argument. The only thing more boring than driving a non Turboed Pontiac is talking about one.

wasn't trying to argue, I just don't remember ever seeing one. I thought perhaps you had. :)
