From Wikipedia:

The Pantera (Italian for “Panther”) was a mid-engined sports car produced by the De Tomaso car company of Italy from 1971 to 1991, the last one being delivered to a customer in 1992. It was the automaker’s most popular model, with over 7,000 units produced during its 20-year run.

Tracking down some history on De Tomaso’s race cars is not easy as there is not much out there.

I did find this for IMSA History site.

With Alejandro De Tomaso’s deeply ingrained love for racing, it was no surprise when a competizione Pantera was unveiled in late 1971. Built to contest the FIA’s now legendary Group 4 category, it would most notably go up against factory built racecars from Ferrari, Porsche and Chevrolet. The shock absorber towers were modified to accomodate beautiful new Campagnolo wheels. Ten and 14-inches wide at the front and back respectively, these cast magnesium rims had a 15-inch diameter and fronted bigger Lockheed ventilated disc brakes. Cooling tubes were now all-alloy, quick-ratio steering racks being fitted along with twin 60-litre fuel tanks. While a projected weight of around 1100kg had originally been targeted, Porsche were so concerned about the Pantera’s arrival that they forced the FIA into homologating the Group 4 version (or GT4) at 1250kg. Bulbous fibreglass wheelarch extensions were pop-riveted on to accomodate the wide Campagnolo wheels and gave the car an extremely aggressive look which was enhanced by the deep front spoiler and matt-black finish for the front lid, engine cover and sills. No front bumpers were fitted nor any rustproofing applied, the Group 4 Pantera’s using two types of tail lights.
