Czech company Tatra is third oldest company producing cars and has an unparalleled history. The company was founded in 1850 as Schustala & Company, later renamed to Nesselsdorfer Wagenbau-Fabriksgesellschaft, when it became a wagon and carriage manufacturer. In 1897, Tatra produced the first motor car in central Europe, the Präsident automobile.In 1919, it changed its name again to Kopřivnická vozovka a.s., and in 1921 changed from the Nesselsdorfer marque to the Tatra badge, named after the nearby Tatra Mountains.1933 to 1952 were the glory days of Tatra. Its aerodynamic cars developed during this era stunned the whole world. Unfortunately after the war Tatra didn’t fare well and slowly closed its car production. Today the brand only produces trucks.
