Tatra (car)
Tatra is a Czech vehicle manufacturer in Kopřivnice. It is owned by the Tatra Trucks company, based in Ostrava, and is the third oldest company in the world producing cars with an unbroken history.[1][2] The company was founded in 1850 as Ignatz Schustala & Comp., in 1890 renamed 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 1918, it changed its name to Kopřivnická vozovka a.s., and in 1919 changed from the Nesselsdorfer marque to the Tatra badge,[3] named after the nearby Tatra Mountains on the Czechoslovak-Polish border (now on the Polish-Slovak border). During World War II Tatra was instrumental in the production of trucks and tank engines for the German war effort

Tatra 20
Nesselsdorfer Wagenbau-Fabriksgesellschaft (NW) type T was a luxury car. As the company changed its name the model was renamed to Tatra 20 in 1919.

It is currently a vintage model, with only three examples known to exist. BMW owns one, while another is owned by a U.S. car collector. The engine NW T was a four stroke OHC water cooled inline four. It had a capacity of 3563 cc, which gave an output of 33 kW (45 PS; 44 hp). The first T20s had to be started manually while later T20s had Bosch electric starters. The same engine was also used in NW TL-2 and NW TL-4 trucks.

Tatra 11
The Tatra T11[1] is an automobile that was produced from 1923 through 1927. It was the first Tatra model to use the unique combination of major components that are still in use on the trucks produced by Tatra to this day.[clarification needed] Hans Ledwinka created the design of the T11 while working for Steyr in Austria. He believed there was a need for a small car, and carried out the work in his own time. His design offered to the Steyr management was rejected. He left the company soon after to work for a previous employer, Nesseldorfer, in Moravia, which was soon to become Tatra. This was in 1921 and the development of the T11 started soon after. The T11 was produced between 1923 and 1927 with 3,847 examples made

Präsident
The Präsident was an automobile manufactured by Nesselsdorfer Wagenbau-Fabriks-Gesellschaft A.G. (NW, now known as Tatra) in 1897. It was the first actually drivable factory made petrol-engined automobile produced in Austria-Hungary as well as in Central and Eastern Europe[2] (save the attempt of Siegfried Marcus of Vienna to build a self-propelled car in 1875). It was constructed by Leopold Sviták and Hans Ledwinka. The automobile was more of a carriage without horses than a car in modern sense. The car is steered via handlebars (while most of the cars of the era had a tiller). The wooden bodywork is placed on an iron frame. It has four seats and a convertible top that would cover only the rear seats. Both axles have suspension of semi-elliptical leaf springs. The wheels were similar to the ones of a horse carriage, but had rubber tyres
