It's also a '92 (first year for the Typhoon, and the only year that colour was offered).

The GMC Syclone (pickup version of the Typhoon) was built in '91 and was available in black only. The '92 model Syclones were going to be available in colors, but they were cancelled. There were 10 red Marlboro Syclones given away as prizes in a Marlboro contest. The Typhoon as shown here was built from '92 - '93. Typhoons were available in an array of colors for both years. You can tell the years apart when you see one on the street by looking at the Typhoon logo decals on the doors and tailgate. In '92 they were gray and in '93 they were yellow.

It's a prototype 1991 Typhoon. See link http://www.syty.org/old/history.html

1991 Typhoon

o Black with Gray
o Aspen Blue with Gray (Cloth interior)
o White with Black (unpainted cladding)

So is it a 1991 or a 1992 then?

The new capture does show that this is Aspen Blue which makes it one of the 4 1991 Concepts as Stephan's link suggests.

We can still list it as SUV. The "proto/concept" category is more for concept cars or early prototypes, not for pre-release models which look like the final one.

11/90 is considered 1991 model year, I think.

Yes, that sounds right.

Alex396; Letter number 10 in the VIN code shows which model year a car is. You have an M as nr10 which makes it a 1991 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_Identification_Number But if you have a 1991 it should be one of the four I listed. Is yours black, white or the Aspenblue movie car?
