Not every carmaker can stick around forever, especially if it's not part of a major auto group. Just ask the guys at Artega, which declared bankruptcy last week. And now De Tomaso is following suit. De Tomaso, for those unfamiliar, was a sportscar company started, like today's Pagani
, by an Argentinian in Italy. Founded in the late 1950s, it briefly owned Maserati
and motorcycle company Moto Guzzi, but was best known for mid-engined exotics like the 1966 Mangusta and 1971 Pantera.
