Launched in 1970, the De Tomaso Pantera model was available until 1993 in different variants. The model being produced in 1987 was the De Tomaso Pantera GT5-S. S stood for steel, in reference to the steel fender extensions in opposition to the polyester fabrication used on the previous Pantera GT5 model. Compared to its direct predecessor, the Pantera GT5-S featured a similar cabin, with leather and wood inserts. The three-spoke steering wheel and shifter had a solid feel and modern look, adding to the enjoyable driving experience. US strict safety and emission regulations made it difficult for third parties to import examples of the De Tomaso Pantera and special bumpers had to be fitted on the American cars, significantly changing the look of the model.
The De Tomaso Pantera GT5-S was produced from 1985 to 1991 and the first chassis was numbered 9375. A few examples were converted to targa in Milano and are amongst the rarest Pantera models nowadays.
