I find the Pontiac Pegasus was sort of a predecessor as well. It was a Firebird concept with Ferrari influences mainly the v12 or v10 shoved in it, and We know that the Fiero was based on the wheelbase and configuration of the Ferrari as well. A prancing horse with wings? I feel all this was more than coincidence.
