The Puma GTE/GTI was the brainchild of Brazilian racer and businessman Genaro "Rino" Malzoni and originally used Volkswagen's Karmann-Ghia Type 14 as the chassis. The Type 14 went out of production in 1973 and the Puma was transferred onto the Volkswagen Brasilia chassis.
The body shape does a great job of hiding its Volkswagen roots (I say that as a good thing, BTW) and you won't know what is under the hood until you pop it open....or start it up. VW's pancake-4 has a distinctive breeetle-breeelte brapaa-taat that causes an instant
The interior is festooned with "diamond plate" -- a substances that no more belongs on the inside or out of a car than it does on the outside of a wedding cake. Now that I think of it, I can't imagine any practical use of diamond plate that is prudent, expect perhaps as an anti-slip surface on some kind of industrial catwalk -- but even that use is questionable given the cost/availability of skateboard style sandpaper tape.
