Made in Austria

Details

There have been large quantities of vehicles produced in Austria, from the glory days of the Austro-Hungarian empire, via the period as part of Hitler's Greater Germany, into the 21st century, when Magna-Steyr is the biggest vehicle maker in Europe, producing cars for brand owners in many countries. None of those 'foreign' cars are described in this book, but dozens of truly Austrian marques are included here. The name of Ferdinand Porsche appears a number of times in these pages. He was born in Bohemia (part of Austria at the time) and worked for a number of Austrian concerns; Lohner, Austro Daimler and Steyr, before becoming involved in the Axis war effort, designing tanks. Late in the Second World War his German design office had to move to Gmund in Austria, where the immortal Porsche 356 was conceived.
