A video shot outside of a De Tomaso building appears to have captured a concept version of the next Pantera sports car.
The original Pantera was produced from 1971 to 1974. It was fitted with a Ford-sourced engine and, by most accounts, the sports car was a success for De Tomaso. There’s no word on what engine the newest Pantera will get, but judging by the deep exhaust note from the video, our guess would be an eight cylinder.
If the car in the video is indeed the Pantera, it looks to be more promising (and exciting) than the De Tomaso SLC/Deauville luxury crossover concept that was featured at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. However, if you look closely at the video clip of the Deauville, you can clearly see “DeTomaso” on the side of the building courtyard the vehicle is exiting, and comparing it to the alleged Pantera video, it’s also obvious it’s the same location. So it’s safe to assume the sports car prototype is definitely a De Tomaso of some sort, if not a revival of the storied Pantera moniker.
