De Tomaso Revisited: The Stefan Schulze "Panthera"S

3D artist and designer Stefan Schulze did something we wish someone inside an actual car company would — revive the design of the Ford V8-powered De Tomaso Pantera of the 1970s. Once sold at Lincoln-Mercury dealerships, the Pantera — along with the Porsche 930 (911 Turbo) — was the symbol of vehicular sexiness for the unisex-salon-and-coke-spoon generation. Schultze's rendering revisits the Pantera shape as a modern retrospective model built atop the bones of a Lamborghini Gallardo. Lamborghini's already put the kabosh on a production version of the Miura concept. Don't expect the "Panthera" to make it through any automaker's boardroom alive. [via Autoblog.it]
