AMC Alliance 

The Renault 9 and Renault 11 were compact automobiles produced by the French car manufacturer Renault between 1982 and 1988. On the North American market the cars were known as the Renault Alliance and Renault Encore respectively.

The 9 was a 4-door sedan, launched in 1982, and was winner of the Car of the Year award of the same year. A version of the 9 was produced by American Motors in the United States, where it was known as the Alliance from both AMC and Renault, and appeared on Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1983. Besides the 4-door, the Alliance was offered as a 2-door sedan, and (from 1984 on) a convertible. The 11 was a 3- or 5-door hatchback, and launched in late 1983 (the US version was known as the Encore). Although the two cars had different names, and silhouettes, they were in fact identical under the skin, and were intended to jointly replace the older Renault 14. The 11 was also distinguishable from the 9 by its front end, which featured the square twin headlights already used on the Alliance in North America.
Both cars were somewhat unremarkable, using Renault's archaic C-type overhead valve engines in 1.1 L or 1.4 L format, and a basic suspension design which resulted in a somewhat ordinary driving experience. The exception was the 9 Turbo and the 11 Turbo, which used the turbocharged engine from the Renault 5. Although heavier, the power from the engine was enough to ensure higher performance, thanks to its 115 hp DIN (85 kW). The newer F-type engine which had been developed in collaboration with Volvo appeared in later years in 1.7 litre guise, powering the upmarket TXE and GTX versions.
The Renault 9 and 11 continued in production until 1988, when the Renault 19 was launched as a replacement.
The 11 did have one moment of movie stardom in the 1985 James Bond film A View to a Kill, where Bond steals a Renault 11 taxi from a Parisian cab driver and uses it to pursue an assassin. The car has its roof torn off in the resulting car chase, and is then chopped in half in a collision with another car (a Renault 20).
