The 1991 Pontiac Protosport 4 concept car was introduced at the 1991 Chicago Auto Show. The Protosport concept was designed to test the idea for a four seat, four-door Firebird.  It offered space for four passengers, while still providing both performance and handling normally found in sports cars.
