So, browsing the Google Play Store I come across this game "Streets Unlimited 3D". If you've ever played " Traffic Racer the game is similar. However, I went to check out the garage to see the available cars. The first car in the Sports tier is the "Spacer" and is undoubtedly an 86-87 GT. Of course the Pontiac logos have been scrubbed, the wheels, sails, and tail lights are a bit off, but it is still recognizable.
The car costs around 40,000 credits, but I paid the dollar to get it right away. The game is free, and pretty fun, especially free roam to just drive around. Customization is apparently nonexistent, but the game is in a very early version still. Below is the link to the app in the Play Store. I've got no idea whether or not this is available for iOS devices. I'll try to put up a screenshot shortly.

Wow, great find! Im downloading it now as we speak.

How can some of you tell the difference between an 86-87 GT vs an 88 GT?

I've had a few people know exactly the year of my car, tho they all look the same for me. Unless of course you look under the hood, or a headlight is stuck open (mostly on pre 87 models.)

Any hints to be able to tell the difference?

From the factory, the 88 GT was the only model year that was entirely body color. It's pretty common (either to save money on a respray or to give the look of an 88) to change the color of the side skirts and molding to the body color, so its not uncommon that 25-30 years from new your Fiero would be entirely body color.

I know - that's exactly what I did. - I really didn't care for the grey/maroon paint scheme.

I tried playing the game, and just couldn't get into it. I didn't think the dollar for the Fiero was gonna help me enjoy the game.

The camera angle keeps like diving down, so I can't see what is in front of me. The physics aren't bad tho.

With out opening the hood, 88 are soild body color, except if it is black or silver, could be 86-87, then look under the back, if you see an ebrake cable 86-87, if not an 88, then look inside if it is a 4 speed 86, 5 speed 86-87, if the map pockets are vinal with a Fiero logo stamp 88, if the dash panels are dot matrix 88, if you can pop the hood or trunk 2 nd gen headlights 87-88 or the fiero engraved intake 87-88, then the brake cable tells that difference, 88s are easy to tell, if you look under the car at the gas tank, the seam low 87-88, up high 86, this is all not counting the VIN, ifs its blue 87 if its yellow 88,

With the wheels off 88s are easy to spot-- I look for the tri link rear suspension. Vented brakes are another dead giveaway, but can be difficult to spot in pictures.
