Chris it's labeled "1981 PM test"?, but there's no year labeling the cars? It wouldn't surprise me if George, Mike or Boss Wrench know the year and makes of all the cars used in the test, as well as the chassis # and owner of the GTS. LOL you guys are walking dictionaries. That's whats so awesome about these forums...all their knowledge is documented here.


HAHAHAH!!! This dates from a Popular Mechanics article comparing the then-current sports cars available on the market at the time. All the cars in question were 1981 models (including the Pantera, a late-model GTS imported by PanterAmerica). Unfortunately I don't know anything about that specific car however.

Perhaps surprisingly, at the end of the test, PM rated the Pantera as the best overall sports car you could buy in the USA in 1981 (if my recollection is correct--I read it many years ago). Unfortunately, PM isn't a very credible outfit (despite the apparently extensive and objective testing they conducted), so their pronouncement fell on deaf ears as far as the marketplace was concerned....
