Dear Authors,

I think the statement "From 1925 the motors didn't have valves" is incorrect. As far as I know, from 1925 all models had sleeve valve engines instead.

Marketing failure?[edit]

I can't see why this change was made.

The energy crisis was clearly a failure in planning, mostly by the US government and perhaps also by oil investors. If policies in the 50s and 60s had been more realistic, Panhard might have survived or even greatly expanded. --David R. Ingham 22:36, 5 August 2005 (UTC)

The original text blamed the energy crisis on the failure of Panhard. I felt that this causality was flawed - that ignorant of energy policies led to both the demise of Panhard and the energy crisis. Shall we discuss? --SFoskett 19:44, August 8, 2005 (UTC)

What I meant was that the failure of Panhard is an example of how the energy policies (and un-informed investments?) let to the energy crisis. Maybe I was not clear.--David R. Ingham 15:43, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

The Energy Crisis was OPEC punishing the west for its constant support of Israel plain and simple. It had nothing to do with energy policies or investmants. it was strictly political.User:Tomtom9041 15:52, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Not Dead Yet?[edit]

"The last Panhard car was built in 1967." and yet there's a picture of the "VBL" which was "developed during the 80s and entered operational service in France in 1990" and there are "1100 in use in France". So which is it?

I think that means that Panhard quit the civilian car business in 1967 and since then has made only military vehicles. The VBL is the Véhicule Blindé Léger -- "Light armoured vehicle".--GagHalfrunt 19:30, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Panhard bought by Swedish Volvo[edit]

In late october 2012 Swedish truck company Volvo bought Panhard for 538 million SEK. Note, Volvo (truck company) is not the sam as Volvo PV (cars) that is owned by Geely. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:57, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
