The first three homologation prototypes of the Panoz Esperante have been built and test driven. Race versions of the Ford powered roadster are scheduled to compete at Le Mans this year.

Panoz reports that they have buyers for two street versions and have sold two race versions of the car. David Price Racing has bought one of the race cars. They won the first BPR championship and finished third at Le Mans in 1995, using a McLaren F1. The French DAMS team has bought the other racer. Panoz hopes to sell a third racer to an American team.
