The Panther WaterCar $139,000 or $172,000

• CATEGORIES: Features, Unusual

UPDATE: I originally featured the Panther WaterCar in 2013. It was priced at $135k at the time. Mike spotted a video of it on Facebook yesterday, so I took another look at the website. The WaterCar is now priced at $139,000 for the basic vehicle or $172,000 for the custom version. Check out the video here.  The company also recently introduced a Fire Rescue Vehicle: https://www.watercar.com/fire-rescue

According to the website, “Builders of The Most Fun Vehicle on the Planet! In 1999, WaterCar started as a personal challenge to build the world’s fastest amphibious vehicle. Our early WaterCars were purpose-built vehicles, to be very fast on both land and water. After January, 2010, when WaterCar established the Guinness amphibious speed record with our Python model, our attention turned to reliability and we began designing a vehicle to offer to the public. Fourteen years, countless successes and failures, 27 patents and untold labor hours later, our personal challenge has been achieved.

The Panther, our first WaterCar to be offered to the public, was created by our WaterCar team which is made up of top designers and technicians from around the world.

Throughout the Panther’s development, the commitment was to engineer a versatile amphibious vehicle built with proven off-the-shelf components that are recognizable throughout the automotive and marine industry. Our WaterCar team has achieved that goal.”

    Look like they have two different kind of front grill. One horizontal and one with 6 vertical slot. It’s very similar as a jeepster design. I’ll put that on my list to buy when I’ll be rich.

    The best modern boatcar yet – it almost looks normal on the road – you might think it is just another Jeep model.

    Bob-

    If you can afford this, you put the trolling motor in the back of your pick up truck and drive this Jeep to the store and buy your fish!!! LOL!! It is pretty darn cool, though!

    This is way cool! I wonder if it comes with a heater? Alaskan lake water in the summer still causes major shrinkage.

    Can somebody forward me the manufacturers details of the Panther Water Car as per this artical.
