Nameplate applied to a variety of models in the Pontiac range, beginning as a full-size car based on the Catalina Coupé, before moving to personal–luxury and intermediate segments later in its life. Early Grand Prix had regular model changes; by the end of the 1960s, John Z. De Lorean shifted the nameplate on to an intermediate platform and created a personal–luxury coupé. This philosophy continued into the 1973–7 generation, which was downsized for 1978. The range was brought up to date in 1988 and sedans were added for the 1990 model year, becoming Pontiac’s mainstream intermediate offering. The nameplate remained in this market segment, with two- and four-door models, till 2003; from 2004, Grand Prix was a four-door only, as Pontiac’s intermediate sedan model. It was eventually superseded by the Holden Commodore (VE)-based G8.
