List of all Panoz cars

Panoz Auto Development is a manufacturer of high-performance automobiles founded in 1989 by Danny Panoz, son of pharmaceutical and motorsport mogul Don Panoz. The company is located in Hoschton, Georgia. Panoz products have included the Panoz Roadster and AIV Roadster, and the Panoz Esperante. All Panoz road cars are tested exhaustively at Panoz-owned Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia and handcrafted at the Hoschton workshop.

Panoz and racing

Since 1997, Panoz cars have competed in racing series around the world. Panoz strives to maintain a close link between its road cars and its racing activities. To this end, Panoz has shifted its American Le Mans and European racing programs toward production-based classes that allow Esperante variants to be raced in modified form. In addition to Le Mans series wins, an Esperante GTLM won the GT2 class at the 2006 24 Hours of Le Mans. For the 2007 American LeMans season, Panoz has contracted longtime BMW Motorsport partner Prototype Technology Group to campaign the GTLM in the ALMS and Le Mans. Panoz also provides the Champ Car World Series with their race car, the Panoz DP01.
