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

Favorite 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.

Suggested Improvements

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