This means that they shifted their manufacturing techniques that allow normal road Panoz Esperante cars to be modified and turned into racing vehicles with little overhead investment as compared to say… turning a Honda Accord into a racing vehicle. Currently there are six road cars with a seventh in development in current production, and five of them are variants of the Esperante. The plain Esperante, the GT, the GTLM, the JRD, and the GTR-1 Street Legal, in addition to that there is also the AIV Roadster and the currently in development Abruzzi.

Their racing division is still working and producing its own lines of vehicles as well, three of them are Esperante, one is an LMP-1 Roadster-S, there is also the LMP07 and the LMP01 Evo. The Panoz company is made up entirely of the huge holdings of the man Don Panoz, and all of these holdings are related to just sporting vehicles (the rest are elsewhere in other companies and umbrella corporations).

The headquarters of this magnificent sports vehicle is in Hoschton Georgia (US). The company itself owns a few race tracks, a car construction company, and even a race school to teach their drivers to race.
