The first "new" De Tomaso, the Deauville, didn't impress anyone.

But as mentioned in the above thread, the Pantera is on the way and here is the first spy video of the prototype!

I can't wait until it returns again next month as something different!

I hope it has a Ford V8. :p

It would be cool if they had a cheaper model with a bone stock 5.0L out of the new Mustang GT.

They shouldn't call it the Pantera unless it has a Ford engine! Although that does bring up a possibility: Ecoboost Pantera anyone? It could be an MP4-12C competitor on the cheap. And I actually liked the wingless original in the same way I preferred the wingless Countach. Bring it on, I say.

Oh My God. That thing makes an absolutely epic sound.

Plus it looks like a zonda and a murcielago mixed together.
Yes please!

Sounds awesome. I'm just happy to see another sports car on the market.

I really like the sound of this car, but I would really like to see the Mangusta.

I don't get it? Fiat is just bringing back dead marques left and right. Its like they looked at Chevrolet and though "Now thats a good business model. We need as many marques as we can get! What could go wrong?"

I'm as big of a fan of the original Pantera as the next guy. I just don't see the point in it? What makes this different than a Ferrari?
