Upstart carmakers have the opportunity to challenge the establishment, to brake the mould and come up with something that’s totally different. We’re not sure if De Tomaso is ever going to come with anything worthwhile, and they have been much criticized for making that boring Deauville that took the brand nowhere fast.
We were a little exited about the return of the Pantera, but it never came, since the cash ran out for the Italian carmaker. Now, the company has been sold to Chinese investment group Hotyork.

“We closely considered the business plan and we believe in the opportunity to develop all the valuable potential of the company. We are working to finalize the last details and implement the agreement in the coming of days,” said Qiu Kunjian, chairman of Chinese investment group Hotyork.

Oh well, at least this way we might have a chance of seeing the Pantera!
