Question Have you ever seen a panoz?

I was wondering if there were anyone else out there who has seen a panoz. personally, i've seen 2. the 1st one was at an exotic car dealership in delray beach, fl. it was a bright yellow esperante. the second one i saw, was this summer in philadelphia in front of a night club. it was also an esperante, but this one was black.

Re: Have you ever seen a panoz?

I worked at Panoz Auto Development in '95-'96. I made and installed the complete wiring harness assy for the Roadster. I was one of a few (less than 20) automotive craftsman that Danny hired to produce the Roadster. This was before the Esperante was even on paper. Roush was just beginning to think about endorsements for Panoz. GCD

I've seen no fewer than three different Panoz cars over the years. The first one I ever saw on the street was probably the same black Esperante you saw in Philadelphia...I saw it between Conshohoken and Radnor.

I've seen several hundred Panoz's, but then again I've worked for them since October of 1996...

Re: Have you ever seen a panoz?

the one thing i've always wondered about panoz. what is the yearly output, cause it's still somewhat hard to find them in some areas. i mean i've seen more ferrari's lambo's and aston martins by me then panoz.
i think panoz cars are all built at the same site, just different buildings, 94 panoz would know better than me.
but me and my grl are going down there in november, maybe i can get a tour or something

www.panoz.com

RELEASED BY RACER MAGAZINE: If you're a sports car racing fan, you've probably looked at the incredible machines roaring by you at tracks such as Road Atlanta or Sebring and thought it would be a dream come true to drive one of those cars. Starting this month, Panoz LLC can make that dream come true, as the company begins producing road versions of the famous Panoz cars.
Surrounded by the cars that made the Panoz name famous at the world's most celebrated circuits, racing media got a sneak peek at the new Panoz showroom and museum in Braselton, Ga., Wednesday night. Dominating the company's 10,000 square foot showroom and museum are reminders of the Panoz racing heritage – and now, clients can purchase street legal versions of any of these amazing cars.
“We will be producing all these cars, on a one-off customer basis, for the street,” explained John A. Leverett, Panoz LLC Vice President of Sales. “If you want a Panoz GTR-1 for the street, we will produce one for you. If you want a Panoz roadster, we'll make one for you. Each car will have an all-new carbon/aluminum chassis, new powertrain, all new custom interior – but we won't do full run production. Customers will get to choose enough on the car to make it uniquely theirs.
“To have a car with the Panoz racing heritage, with all the bodywork and substance that regulations will allow on the street, will be a very distinctive experience.”
