Panorama is the third studio album by American new wave band the Cars, released in 1980. The record marked a change from the upbeat pop rock and hard rock of the group's previous albums, representing a more aggressive and experimental sound. It was not as commercially successful as the Cars' previous or subsequent albums until 1987's Door to Door. However, it did hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart and has been certified platinum by the RIAA.

After releasing two albums, one a perfect poprock-meets-new wave classic, the other a very good follow-up, the Cars were game to try things a little differently on their third album Panorama. With longtime collaborator Roy Thomas Baker behind the boards, the band decamped to the Power Station in New York City and began working on a set of songs that were a little less poppy, both structurally and sonically.

Thank you for helping . The Cars had another Top Five album with 'Panorama,' which was released on Aug. That anger didn't soon subside after Panorama arrived. Although it was another platinum Top 5 success, and added another Top 40 single to the band's growing collection with Touch and Go, the album left the overall impression that the Cars were struggling to regain the momentum they'd built with their debut - and forsaking the rock component of their sound for more experimental, synth-driven diversions.
