Great quovadis 2020-01-19 0:12

Hi Lucas.

Wow, this sports car truly deserves attention. Must say, I have once or twice read some information about the manufacturer, but it was a very long time ago and long forgotten by now. I wonder what happened to the firm afterwards? I know that the VW Karman Ghia was quite a popular car, I still can see that model in the streets from time to time. But this Puma truly looks awsome, an elegant and well-balanced chassis, seriously competitive with brands like; Porsche or DeTomasso in the '70s.
Thanks for sharing !!!

Default To quovadis: Puma

It was really a car that was relatively successful, mainly for its design. But I had some finishing problems. Like any independent manufacturer in Brazil, PUMA did not survive the opening of the Brazilian market to imported vehicles in 1990. It even tried to manufacture trucks, but the debt was already great. It went bankrupt.
