2004 Panoz Esperante 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The Panoz Esperante recaptures the
feeling of the old 289 Cobra, which was
always the most exciting streetable
ride there was. There's a fun factor so
lacking in the other cars available
today. Some are faster, most quieter
and ride better, some are surely better
put together and use prettier
materials, but the Panoz gives
something else-those intangibles the
Cobra gave, the perfect feedback, the
complete involvement, the roughness
around the edges, the classic style,
the exclusivity and the performance
that feels better than it actually is.
The Esperante, an American made toy,
w/high-tech, expensive components that
knocks your age back 25-35 years


Best Features

Has a great powertrain, runs, looks and sounds great. Made of aluminum, carbon fiber and stainless steel throughout and is made by a bunch of guys who really seem to love what they are producing. I toured the factory and met them. They're enthusiasts.


Worst Features

Convertible top boot. Make the Plasma wheels standard equipment. Cupholders, xm radio, climate control.

2004 Panoz Esperante 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

This car gets me more valet attention
than any car I have ever had. And I
have had over 30 cars!


Best Features

Performance (its like driving one of their race cars) Body Style, Prestige, Exclusivity, I cant stop at a gas station without a Mob showing up!


Worst Features

Better dealer availibility. I had to wait in line to get my car. My dealer was great but I had to wait in line. It was the same when I bought my Ferrari 360. ( The car I traded in )

2004 Panoz Esperante 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

An absolute joy to drive. Perfect
blend of style, comfort, handling and
power. American ingenuity at its
finest. A great throwback to European
styling with modern practicality and
reliability.


Best Features

Love the center console. Plenty of room and comfort inside. Exterior appeal is as sweet as it gets. Not too showy


Worst Features

Hand brake needs more finger room. Also, several loose screws in the engine compartment holding on the L & R quarter panel carbon fiber.
