Teram Puntero Porsche 1958 by Autocult
the beginning of the 1950s the Argentinian government, led by president Juan
Domingo Perón, planned to initiate a
state-run company conglomerate, which was supposed to cover the country’s need for
motor vehicles and aircrafts. For these extensive and various branches of
production overall ten companies were founded. Each company was specialized in a
different field. The whole consortium of companies was administered by the
state-operated holding organization “Industrias Aeronáuticas y Mecánicas del Estado”,
better known under the acronym “IAME”.
production of a passenger car, christened with the name Justicialista, turned
out to be a flop. Only 167 copies were sold! In the light of this fiasco, the
state-operated organization gave up; probably also due to the overthrow of
president Perón in September 1955; and
ceased the complete production of passenger cars in 1955. The production
facilities as well as the remaining stock of partially preassembled vehicles,
together with all remaining parts, were sold to the company Teram. Teram, which
was led by the business partners Pedro Daverda and Frederico De Bucourt,
purchased parts and chassis for exact 144 cars. Both were fully aware that the
sales success of their car was dependent on a complete new visual appearance.
Absolutely nothing should bear a resemblance with the Justicialista. They
fitted a completely new designed body to the chassis and were able to land the
Swabian car manufacturer Porsche as their engine supplier. Porsche supplied
Teram with its Boxer engine from the Type 356.
from 1958 the converted car was available under the designation Teram-Puntero
at the dealerships. But it was not before the year 1963, when the last of a
total of 144 copies was sold.
