The Wanderer W245 is a car of the upper middle class produced by Wanderer-Werke and introduced in 1935 as a successor to the W11. It differed from his predecessor by having a low frame and rear swing axle with transverse leaf springs, which Ferdinand Porsche designed based on his earlier designs at Steyr. In addition, the car now had hydraulic brakes.

The vehicle had a 6-cylinder in-line engine with a displacement of 2.26 litres that developed 50 hp. This was mated to a 4-speed transmission with the power being sent to the rear wheels. A 4-door sedan (with 4 windows) and a 4-seater touring car were offered.

At the same time the Wanderer W250 appeared with the same technology as a 4-door sedan (with 6 windows), 2-door convertible (with 4 windows) and 6-seater Pullman limousine.

In 1936, the W245 was renamed the Wanderer W45, and the 250 was renamed the Wanderer W50. The power of both vehicles rose to 55 hp.

Also in 1936, the Spezial W51 was introduced. It was the same as the W50, but with a new body as a 4-door sedan (6 windows) and 2-door convertible (4 windows).

In total, 29,111 cars were of the W21, W35, W235, W22, W240, W40. About 800 cars of the W51 were built.
