Coffee and a Concept: Pontiac Banshee

In the 1960s, the muscle car era was just getting started. General Motors had previously shown a concept series called Firebird in the 1950s. To continue that theme, and to add performance as a motif for the Pontiac brand, the Banshee series was created.

The first of the Pontiac Banshee cars debuted in 1964 and 1965 as three concepts under the XP-833 and XP-851 tags. The “Banshee” name was added later, having been previously considered for some Camaro concepts that eventually became the Firebird series of production cars.
