1967→1970 Puma GT

With the end of production of the DKW Puma GT, Puma had to design another sports car, with mechanical yet produced, and the choice fell on another German project: the new GT would use the chassis and suspensions from Karmann-Ghia and Volkswagen air cooled engine, 4-cylinder and 1500 cm3. The new PUMA GT didn’t remember the lines of the Ferrari 275 GTB anymore, it was inspired by current models of the time as the Alfa Romeo Duetto and Lamborghini Miura. Called the popular Shark because of its lines and the sides closed shaped gills.
