De Tomaso Modena SpA) is an Italian car-manufacturing company. It was founded by the Argentine-born Alejandro de Tomaso (1928–2003) in Modena in 1959. It originally produced various prototypes and racing cars, including a Formula One car for Frank Williams's team in 1970.
The Pantera debuted in Modena in March 1970 and was presented at the 1970 New York Motor Show a few weeks later. A year later the first production Pantera’s were sold, and production was increased to three per day. Designed by an American, working for an Italian firm the Pantera (Italian for “Pantha”) took over from the Mangusta and continued to be produced for 20 years. Unlike the Mangusta the Pantera employed a steel monocoque which was the first time De Tomaso used this technique.
