De Tomaso learnt a lot of lessons from the Mangusta, so when it came to creating a new supercar for Ford to sell in the USA, it made sure it was a lot more habitable. The reworked chassis ensured there was a lot less rearward weight bias, and therefore, snap oversteer wasn’t an inevitable consequence of bungled corner. The interior was roomier, and had standard air conditioning, too. However, quality and reliability was poor, and when Ford withdrew its support, De Tomaso had to go it alone when selling the Pantera.
