Fred Pacer is a character in Cars 2.

Cars 2

"Fred missed his early days growing up in Kenosha. Back then, he didn't have to worry about being the toughest Lemon on the block, or where he would get his spare parts. All he had to think about was kicking back and relaxing with fellow Pacers and Gremlins. As time went on, the factory parts dried up in his hometown, and Fred had to look for new adventures in faraway places. That led him to sign up for work on a mysterious oil rig in the deep Pacific. As long as the pay is steady and the parts don't dry up, Fred's not complaining."[1]

Fred was a yellow Pacer car who was part of the Pacer family that works with Professor Z. In the film, Fred was seen in the background of the scene where Professor Z tests his camera weapon. He was also seen fighting Finn McMissile in a back alley in Tokyo. He was then thrown into an elevator by McMissile, that violently lifts and crashes with its roof, crushing Fred, leading to his death. Later, as Mater leaves, Finn, watching above, is next to Fred Pacer, implying that Finn moved Fred's corpse.



  • Fred's last name "Pacer" is the name of his model.
  • The inscriptions on his die-cast version's tires read "Road Hug - Rack and Minion", which is the same on Acer's tires.
  • Fred's diecast packages refer to him as both "Fred Pacer" and "Fred Fisbowski".
