Jens Uwe-Harder also provided some interesting information regarding Puma importation to Europe. He indicates that approximately 150 Pumas where imported into Europe, most via Switzerland by a Mr. Pfister. It appears that Pfister imported about 105 cars starting between 1972 and 1983. In addition, approximately 25 cars were imported by a German company called "Deutsch Brasilianische Fahrzeugbau GmbH." This company went bankrupt soon after the cars were imported in the 1979-1980 time period. This company planned to produce the Puma in Germany but this idea failed. Another German company that tried to import Pumas from Brazil was "Puma Automobil GmbH Deutschland" in Stuttgart. Little is know of this third effort. Of the 150 or so cars that were imported, 41 are known to exist today.

Here is an image of the cover of a German Puma Catalog that Jens provided.
