The Panoz Esperantes design and the philosophy behind it are both a respectful nod to the great sports cars of the past and a bold look to the future. Its sweeping lines and subtle curves, reminders of a time when cars meant something different to each of us and yet stirred the same excitement and desire in us all. A time when a car's individuality was found in its look, sound and feel and not just its name. Wrapped in the Esperante's refined shape is pure, state-of-the-art automotive design and manufacturing. The result of a belief that a sports car's exotic looks don't have to come at the expense of reliability, and that high performance lies in the whole of the automobile and not just under the hood.
