1. WaterCar Panther: WaterCar’s latest offering is the Panther. WaterCar calls the Panther the “ultimate vehicle” It is capable of reaching water speeds of up to 45mph – almost as fast as an average speedboat – plus can be driven up to 80mph on land. The Panther’s design is based on a Jeep CJ8 Scrambler, however, because the chassis of the Jeep was too heavy for the water, the Panther’s lightweight chassis is made of chromoly steel.

Friends, where is Ukrainian amphibious car ZAZ ???? See – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSVYuv55dHs

Adam Lindenbaum says:

I think the Amphicar being it’s the only one of these that was a production car affordable to the average working man it deserves more credit. I doubt sales of 3878 of all of the others combined won’t happen. An Amphicar was $2,800-$3,300 in the sixties (equivalent to about $30,000 today), the Panther is well over $100,000.

you list is bit backwards the two gibbs vehicals are the only production vehicals

Fifthrider says:

So glad to see the Panther as #1. It’s one of the few that looks like a car when on the road, and probably the only one that can blend in with the crowd instead of sticking out like a sore thumb. Brilliant car.

McGuyver Starr was a Taxi Driver, whose life was really pretty dull. Actually, each day was fairly bleak and secretly he wondered if he was ever going to go very far, until the day he bought his brand new, second-hand, Lagoon Blue Amphicar! He’d never really thought about it, but deep inside McGuyver had a raging surfie streak; he was searching for a set of wheels to match his identity; something that spoke of the sea, yet made a statement that he was unique! By the time children read to the end of this book, they will be veritable authorities on the remarkable German-built Amphicar, which rolled off the assembly line in 1961 but had ceased production by 1968.
