DeTomaso Pantera

An Italian sports car produced from 1971 to 1991. Is it cool?

I had to stop doing that bit because believe it or not, it took me a LONG time to find all the correct information. In fact, the time it took me to post up polls was the main reason why I stopped doing so for almost a year.

It got especially frustrating when the numbers didn't match from one site to another while researching the very same car. That way, I couldn't be sure what the correct data was. As much as I loved researching the cars, I just couldn't spend the amount of time it needed anymore.

Thanks for doing the polls Ant, with or without data. People can always check up themselves

Old, rare, rude, and as ER says, not the ultimate in chassis design - now cool but probably not when new.

Horrendously unreliable, massive running costs, apparently they don't even drive that well! Great sounding, great looking and seriously rare!

All of the above = sub zero

Although Ned really likes them so that makes it not so cool

this car is a facade. When you see it with the rear open you realise there's nothing behind the engine .
Nice enough looking. In the sixties ,Ford US bought the company so the execs could have sports cars as company cars!

No need to drive it. It'll just sit there looking aggresive with loads of prescence glaring at you! Style, with yank tank muscle, great in a straight line? I almost chopped my 'E' roadster in for one once.:

One of the coolest cars on the road for me - got to be in the right spec though, that one above looks gash.

Supercars aren't cool as a general rule. However, this one is (but only in European spec without white letter tyres and hideous bumpers).
