Pontiac is a brand of automobiles first produced in 1926 by General Motors (GM). Pontiac has been marketed as an athletic brand, specializing in mainstream performance vehicles. The Pontiac brand was introduced by General Motors in 1926 as the companion marque to GM's Oakland Motor Car line. The Pontiac name was first used in 1900 by the Pontiac Spring Wagon Works. The name was taken from Chief Pontiac, an American Indian chief who led an unsuccessful uprising against the British shortly after the French and Indian War. Pontiac began by selling cars offering 40 hp 186.7 ci (3.1 liter) L-head straight 6-cylinder engines in the Pontiac Chief of 1927. From 1946-1948, all Pontiac models were essentially 1942 models with minor changes. The Hydra-matic automatic transmission was introduced in 1948 and helped Pontiac sales grow even though their cars, Torpedoes and Streamliners, were quickly becoming out of date.

The first all-new Pontiac models appeared in 1949. Newly redesigned, they sported such styling cues as lower body lines and rear fenders that were integrated in the rear-end styling of the car. Completely new bodies and chassis were introduced for 1955. A new 173-horsepower overhead valve V-8 engine was introduced. The 1961 models were similarly reworked. The split grille returned, as well as all-new bodies and a new design of a perimeter-frame chassis for all its full-size models. Introduced in 1982, the wedge shaped Firebird was the first major redesign of the venerable pony car since the early 1970s. With the exception of the Firebird and Fiero, beginning in 1988 all Pontiacs switched to front-wheel drive platforms. For the first time since 1970, Pontiac was the number three domestic car maker in America. Pontiac's drive to bring in more youthful buyers was working as the median age of Pontiac owners dropped from 46 in 1981 to 38 in 1988. In April of 2009, amid ongoing financial problems and restructuring efforts, GM announced that it would phase out the Pontiac brand by the end of 2010.
