Detomaso replaced the Pantera GT5 with the GT5-S in 1985. The GT5-S featured single piece flared steel fenders instead of the GT5’s riveted-on fiberglass flares, and a smaller steel front air dam. The ‘S’ in the GT5-S name stood for “steel”. Otherwise the GT5-S was largely identical to the GT5. Fewer than 183 GT5-S Panteras were built, concurrent GTS production continued on a custom order and very limited basis, until the late 1980s.
The car continued to use a Ford V8 engine, although once the supply of Ford 351 Cleveland engines from Australia ran out De Tomaso began installing Ford 351 Windsor engines in the Pantera instead. In 1990 they switched from the 351 to the Ford 302 cu in (4942 cc, commonly called a “5.0”). Incorporating a Marcello Gandini facelift, suspension redesign, partial chassis redesign and the new, smaller engine, the Pantera 90 Si model was introduced in 1990. Only 38 90 Si models were sold before the Pantera was finally phased out in 1993.
