The Beginning of The Panoz Roadster
 
The roots of the Panoz Roadster begin in Ireland with the Wexford-based Thompson Motor Company, or TMC, which was developing race cars on a chassis designed by the Frank Costin. The TMC Costin was a lightweight sports car built from 1983 to 1987. The cars were very successful in racing, but just twenty six cars were built before the TMC Company went bankrupt in 1987
