    Well, this car has a build quality the Viper could only wish for; it's quite exquisite. But yeah, the Viper will run rings around this thing.

    Stunning car with impressive flowing lines that harken back to the Golden Days of road cars. But, its $80,000 for a fancy Mustang! Nice car....too expensive for what you get.

     
  12. Re: The Viper is Under Powered!

    second hand.

    see people i dont get u, if a car is to much that u dont like, then u mention USED cars that could out do it.

    but if its a car u do like for 80k, all u have to say is oh u just jealous u dont have the money for this car, u poor ass, blah blah blah.

    hipocrits, thats all these forums have.

    yes 80k for this car is not much, just look at it and the quality and everything else u get with this car. oh yea go panoz.

    but then again ferrarri costs twice as much NEW for just a little better performance.

    oh yea boxsters run 70k and up, and have the same performance.

    but then again i can get a gt40 kit car for 40grand almost turn key ready with a 427, 6-speed triptronic geer box and run circles around anything i see.

    dont be mad be glad, <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"> u hipocrits

    Kit car quality? have you been thru the factory? I have, and its far from kit car quality.

    Its also not a "fancy Mustang", it uses Mustang parts, but they are put on an aluminum extruded frame. It uses a Mustang sourced engine (hey, so does the Konigsegg CC...), and various other Ford sourced items, but that does not make it a Mustang, but actually far from it.

    The body panels are also superformed aluminum, which is not a cheap process, not to mention the higher build costs that Panoz faces. They only build one car, and can't spread the costs out over thousands of cars like Ford, BMW, Chevrolet, etc. Thus the niche car builder has to charge more for his car.

    Personally I really like the Esperante, and if given a choice, I'd take one before a Viper, Z3, M3, Z06...
     
  15. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    ...I still wouldn't pay that much for this car.
     
  16. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    From what I hear this car has sold pretty well. I like it. 1/2 the price of a ferrari, 5/6 the joy!<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    For $80k, I'd buy a Carrera 4 over this car, but I still love the Panoz.

    Anybody else not like the gauges being in the middle?
     
  18. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    Yes. Nicer is a matter of opinion, I like the Esperante alot more than the Viper, and it would be lower maintance than a Ferrari.
     
  20. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    basically this panoz is a rebodied mustang with panoz badge on the front and a sky high price.. imo there are better cars for 80K!<!-- Signature -->

  22. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    Super Sonic have you listened to the conversation. This car has its own aluminum space frame (does a mustang have this). That is comprable to saying the Mosler MT900 is a rebodied vette, even though it has a monoqoque chassis. Or that the Koenisegg CC is a rebodied mustang. It is a unique car that has a mustang engine in it. Or saying that the Dodge truck with the Viper engine is a rebodied viper. I have seen this car up close and it is so much cooler looking and has better build quality (shut lines and quality of interior) than the viper. I would still rather have a z06 than this car though. But this car just looks like a classic car. Wait, i am still wrapping my head around how you say this is a rebodied mustang, please explain.<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    4 wheels / 2 seats / some aluminum / mustang engine / a classic body shell plus 1 polished panoz badge does not = $80k -I think panoz thinks if he does a bit of racing people will pay over the odds for the name for what is in reality a mustang kitcar. this is not a bad car but you can do better like say a 355 spider...for same money! ...................................................
    i wish i never started this thread.<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: 80,000 DOLLARS !!!!! who does panoz think he is ?? FERR

    You are totally overlooking the fact its 100% homologated for the US, and that the build cost per unit for a niche auto builder is higher than those of a large automaker. A "kit car" does not have to undergo the ~$1.5million investment to get homologated.

    You may not like the price, but once you see how the car is built, and understand the costs involved, you'll see Danny isn't making all that much on them.

    Who in hell would want an rt/10
    The Esperante is a very nice car
    Panoz isn't selling this car to compete with Ferrari, besides Ferraris cost 150,000 and up<!-- Signature -->
