The Pontiac getting rallied by Popeye Doyle in the French Connection.

Also the Audi S8 and BMW 535i in Ronin.

Here's a strange one - a few years ago I was flicking around the telly and the movie 9 to 5 with Dolly Parton was on:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080319/?ref_=tttr_tr_tt

After a few mins I noticed that there's a Porsche 914 in almost every street view, sometimes more than one - so Porsche must have had a great product placement deal going on for that one!

The various Lotus Esprit from the James Bond movies with Roger Moore. I loved the metallic orange Turbo model he took to the Alps even though it was not a "gadget" car like the white submarine one before it.

No it was a Firebird but the Camaro of that era was a beauty too.

I've always felt that the design of the rear end of the Jag XJ220 looked very like that!

The Wraith - made me think of another Charlie Sheen film from the mid eighties - film is The Boys Next Door where a fuselage Roadrunner is heavily featured

Warning: controversial language and action in this scene and in the film generally with lots of violence and murders and a great soundtrack - a must see!

It was a Firebird Formula disguised to look like a Firebird Esprit.

To look the part of an Esprit, a Formula would have its rear spoiler removed and its scooped hood replaced with a plain Esprit hood. The show bought three Firebirds each season. James Garner didn’t like the styling of the 1979 Firebird, so ’78s were used until the show ended its run in 1980.
