Louis François René Panhard (27 May 1841 - 16 July 1908) was a French engineer, merchant and a pioneer of the automobile industry in France.

Born in Paris, and having graduated from École Centrale Paris, he was employed by Jean-Louis Périn in a firm that produced wood-working machines, where Panhard met Émile Levassor. After Périn's death, the two established their own firm, Panhard et Levassor which produced its first automobile in 1890.

He was also a mayor of Thiais in the département Val-de-Marne. In Paris, a street in the 13th arrondissement is named after him.

René Panhard died in La Bourboule and was buried in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
