This first supercar named as Panthera. The Panthera is the eldest brother in the Proton’s supercar series family. The Panthera was designed with a minimalist “less is more” philosophy in mind. This philosophy dictates that the shape and form of the car have to be purely functional, with no added features except those needed to meet regulations or enhance aerodynamics, safety, ergonomics, and practicality.
The Panthera name was taken from a scientific name of big cat family which a symbol of Proton – the tiger head in a roar position. Panthera is a genus of the family Felidae (cats), which contains four well-known living species: the tiger, the lion, the leopard, and the jaguar.
