Let us tell you how this works, De Tomaso: First you give us the supercar, then you dilute the brand with crossovers and city cars and such. Got it? Just ask Porsche or Aston Martin. Oh never mind – we'll just take the sportscar now.

Half a year after reviving the brand, inexplicably, with the Deauville concept, rumor has it that De Tomaso is getting ready to unveil a Pantera successor at September's upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

The new supercar – which revives the nameplate of the 70s classic pictured above – is said to weigh less than 1,200 kilograms (2,645 pounds), which, coupled to a 600-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette V8, ought to dial-in some blistering performance.

The spy video we brought you a couple of months ago certainly looked – and sounded – promising, but we'll have to wait until September to see how the finished product turns out.
