Looks too much like a Ferrari. They would have been sued if the Fiero looked like that.
Pontiac was forced to stop supporting the Mera as deliverable from the dealership when Ferrari sued as it was a 308 kit car on the outside. The inside was still a Fieto though.

And the Fiero looked fine in both major body forms. It was just the seriously underpowered Iron Duke and early problems with fires from using it that killed it. Had GM execs not scrapped the plan of using a V8 (they were afraid it would threaten the Corvette) and providing it with its own suspension not a parts bin one, it would have been a smashing success. But Pontiac already had a Camaro counterpart and Chevy cried foul and the higher ups at GM listened.
