1988 Chevrolet Beretta GTU.jpg

Chevrolet Beretta (L-body). 1987–96 (prod. 1,751,036, incl. some Corsica). 2-door coupé. F/F, 1999, 2196 cm³ (I4 OHV), 2261 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 2836, 3135 cm³ (V6 OHV). Coupé counterpart to Chevrolet Corsica, well priced in the US market. A handful of 1987s were sold to rental fleets, other customers could buy them from the 1988 model year on (with the main difference an AM–FM radio with digital clock on the latter). Poor performance from the original four-cylinder, with buyers opting for 2·8 V6. GTZ became the principal sport model from 1990, taking over from GTU, with Oldsmobile DOHC four; 2·2 and 3·1 introduced that year. A convertible, which appeared as a pace car at the 1990 Indianapolis 500, never made full production. Driver’s airbag from 1991; anti-lock brakes from 1992; added power and new automatic transmission for 1994. Z26 replaced GTZ in 1994. Special Value models for 1995 to boost flagging sales. Not that refined or reliable compared to foreign brands, but reasonable roadholding for the sporty models.
