1985 Renault 9 Txe
Renault 9 TXE
The Renault 9 and Renault 11 were constrict automobiles produced by the French carmaker Renault betwixt 1982 and 1988. On the Northwards American commercialize the cars were known as the Renault Coalition and Renault Encore severally.
The 9 was a 4-door saloon, launched in 1982, and was succeeder of the European Car of the Class prize of the like yr. A interpretation of the 9 was produced by American Motors in the Joined States, where it was known as the Renault Bond (although it too gauge a circumspect AMC badge on its backside windowpane). The Alignment appeared on Car and Driver’s Ten Outdo lean for 1983, and was the 1983 Drive Drift Car of the Class. Also the 4-door, the Bond was offered as a 2-door saloon, and (from 1984 on) a transmutable. The 11 was a 3- or 5-door hatchback, and launched in belatedly 1983. The US reading was known as the Renault Encore. Although the two cars had unlike names, and silhouettes, they were in fact very nether the pelt, and were intended to collectively exchange the aged Renault 14. The 11 was besides distinct from the 9 by its forepart, which featured the lame counterpart headlights already victimised on the Bond in N America. The 9 likewise standard this new forepart in 1984 and both models were facelifted for a last meter with the like poke and home upgrades for the 1987 modelling class.
Both cars were pretty everyday, victimisation Renault’s primitive C-type viewgraph valve engines in 1.1 L or 1.4 L initialize, and a canonic respite invention which resulted in a reasonably average drive live. The elision was the 9 Turbo and the 11 Turbo, which put-upon the turbocharged locomotive from the Renault 5. Although heavier, the might from the locomotive was plenty to see higher functioning, thanks to its 115 hp DIN (85 kW). The newer F-type locomotive which had been highly-developed in collaborationism with Volvo appeared in ulterior geezerhood in 1.7 L pretence, powering the upmarket TXE and GTX versions. The Bond and Encore, spell relatively underpowered, had a definite vantage in rally and manipulation against former pocket-sized cars usable in America at the metre and tied had their own SCCA spec-racing serial, the Confederation Cup.
The Renault 9 and 11 continued in yield until 1988, when the Renault 19 was launched as a transposition. The Confederation and Encore (renamed the Coalition Hatchback from 1986 ahead) were dropped later Chrysler’s buyout of AMC in 1987. The Bond did get one death hooray in the American mart in 1987 with the one-year-only GTA coupe and exchangeable. These had a higher-performance 2.0 L locomotive, play hiatus, an flowing consistence kit, Ronal wheels, and early “dissipated” upgrades. Made in express quantities, the GTA is something of a aggregator’s detail tod. The bankruptcy of the Renault cheek to know the American requirement for more hp before on in the Alinement’s run is considered one of the conducive factors to American Motors’ ruination.
The 11 did bear one bit of film stardom in the 1985 James Shackle flick A Horizon to a Pop, where Trammel steals a Renault 11 cab from a Parisian cab driver and uses it to engage an bravo (pictured by Gracility Jones). In a succession co-ordinated by far-famed French stuntman Rémy Julienne, the car has its cap mangled off in the resulting car furrow, and is so shredded in one-half in a hit with another car (a Renault 20).
