The Puma

Announced Release:
November, 1994

According to press articles, the Puma was launched in November of 1994. It is unlikely that Commodore officially sanctioned this machine. The Puma was designed as a full multimedia system for the professional market. In my opinion both of these machines are based upon a CD32 using the SX-1 board to provide all of the capabilities of a easy to use computer.
 

Processor 68020
Operating System AmigaOS 3.1
Memory 6Mb Ram (2MB Chip 4MB Fast)
Disk drive 880k Double Density

The Panther

The Panther was an expanded version of the Puma, utilitising the faster 68030 CPU and additional expansion slots. A rumour at the time suggested a Video Toaster bundle was also planned.

Faster than a speeding tabby!

The range of feline Amigas was planned to continue with the advent of a 68060-based Amiga system. As far as I know this has never came to fruition, but the possibility is still there.
