Panoz Cars History

There're 2 PANOZ car owner's manuals PDF, spare parts catalog.


Panoz Automotive Development is a project of automotive enthusiast Dan Panoz and his father Don, who owned the Atlanta and Sebring racetracks.


The firm was founded in 1989 in Georgia, USA, but the clover shamrock on its emblem points to Irish roots.


The first model, Panoz Roadster, was developed on the basis of the Irish car TMC Costin, which in turn was a replica of the Lotus Seven.


By applying modern aerospace technology to the design of the roadster, Dan Panoz significantly improved its driving performance and achieved success in the custom sports car market.


In 1997 he also formed his own racing team, Panoz Motorsport, and for several seasons tried to compete in the prestigious FIA GT1 championship.


Panoz's latest sports prototype was the LMP07 roadster, produced in collaboration with Elan Motorsport for the 2001 season.


He received a modified carbon body and a 4-liter aluminum Zytek V8 engine with 620 hp.


During the race at Le Mans, all three cars retired, which meant a complete failure.


In 2002, the team returned to the track with a redesigned Panoz LMP-1 Evo, which took 4th place at Le Mans.


Further competition with the invincible Audi R8 no longer made sense.


Panoz now continues to hand-assemble dozens of road and race cars a year, using off-the-shelf V8 engines from Ford or Chevrolet.
