History

In the early 1920s, Ferdinand Porsche created this race car "Sascha". The cars were fitted with a 1.3 liter engine. They were commissioned and funded by the Count Sascha Kolowrat (a rich film producer) and built by Austro-Daimler.

Three of these small cars are entered in the Targa Florio in April 1922. Ferdinand Porsche tried to convince the board of directors of Austro-Daimler to produce a small series of 'Sascha'. His attempts failed so we left the company to go and work in Germany at Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft in Stuttgart in 1923.
