    One of my best friends has a 1972 Pantera - it's pretty fun.

    Curious as to what engine they are using?  The 5.4L Ford GT supercharged motor or the new 5.0L.  My money goes on the Boss 5.4L supercharged.  We know it can make 550hp from the factory, and I'd bet a simply pulley and some tuning could conservatively get it in the low 600's, hopefully the car is 3000lbs or under and you have an instant winner.

    De Tomaso Pantera spy video a hoax?

    The internet was set abuzz yesterday when several sites, us included, featured a video that was purported to be the 2012 De Tomaso Pantera. We had a funny feeling that we'd seen the car before, but now we know where.


    Nearly four years ago, the same vehicle was caught by spy photographers who believed it was the 2009 Lotus Esprit. That assumption turned out to be incorrect, but it raises some serious questions about the authenticity of yesterday's footage.


    So was it the Pantera, an early Lotus prototype or else all together? We're not sure, but the Pantera is slated to be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show.


     

    Re: the new Pantera is coming !

    In 1973 the Panteras were intially sold through the Lincoln-Mercury dealerships, and our local dealer had a yellow one that they really wanted my father to buy, and so did I! I thought it would be a great replacement for his beige-gray 911T. Naturally he didn't agree.

    Maybe they're working with Lotus to develop the car ?  Smiley

    From the sound of it, it's DEFINETELY NOT an american sourced engine. It sounds more like a ferrari v8. And you have to be really weird to prefer a ford engine to a ferrari one. Anyway, since this car is made in italy, I see no reason why it should have an american engine in it. The first pantera was not very loved precisely for that thing: it lacked the italian soul. 
     


    Re: the new Pantera is coming !

      That sound is probably the best I'Ve heard since a long time 

    I would love it!

    Hopefully Pantera is smarter than that.  Why build another car that will just burn to the ground and put the driver's life at risk.  Better safe than sorry and use proven American engineering.  I once heard they used Ferrari's to light BBQ fires, but I think it is just a rumor.


    Re: the new Pantera is coming !

    The Detomaso Pantera GT5 is one car I've always wanted to see in the flesh. It's way before my time but I've always loved it. I think I like it even more than the Countach
