1. Baur Karosserie- und Fahrzeugbau – Baur is a Karosserie or coachbuilder in Stuttgart, Germany, which has been building BMW convertibles since the 1930s. Currently, they are the body and assembly works for IVM Automotive and they enjoy an excellent reputation for quality and do prototype work for many manufacturers such as Porsche, Audi and Ford. The Baur family received a patent for the design of a top for luxury automobiles about the time BMW was building the first car with the BMW name. Baur was established in 1910 and produced, among others,1682 1600-2 Cabriolets,2002002 Cabriolets,2597 E110700 Sport Cabriolets, in 1971 they began production of the safer targa style body with the 2002. Originally an aftermarket option available through BMW dealers, the E21 3-series TC1 was built with full factory authorization, the roll-bar version or Top Cabrio continued with the E30 TC2 even after Baur developed the BMW E30 Convertible design for BMW, and which BMW built. The Opel Kadett C Aero was produced from 1976 to 1978, then there was the Baur TC3 of 1987, which was stopped by the production of the BMW Z1. The cars were aimed at the same market, even though BMW now had its own E36 convertible, E36 Baur TC4 conversions were still available, although this iteration was based on the E36 four-door and featured fixed door frames. These TC cars can be built for the owner at any time, after-market, all Porsche 959s were actually produced at Baur, not at Porsche, on an assembly line with Porsche inspectors overseeing the finished bodies. Most of Porsches special order interior leather work was also done by the workers at Baur, at one time all suspension components for the Audi Quattro suspension unique to that model were produced by robot welding equipment at Baur. In 2002, the Baur G-Cabrio XL, a based on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class was shown at the Geneva Auto Show

3. Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft – Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft was a German engine and later automobile manufacturer, in operation from 1890 until 1926. Founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, it was based first in Cannstatt, Daimler died in 1900, and their business moved in 1903 to Stuttgart-Untertürkheim after the original factory was destroyed by fire, and again to Berlin in 1922. Other factories were located in Marienfelde and Sindelfingen, after this automobile production expanded to become DMGs main product, and it built several models. Because of the post World War One German economic crisis, DMG merged in 1926 with Benz & Cie. becoming Daimler-Benz, a further merger occurred in 1998 with Chrysler to become DaimlerChrysler. The name was changed to just Daimler AG in 2007 when Chrysler was sold. By 1882 both Daimler and Maybach had left Nikolaus Ottos Deutz AG Gasmotorenfabrik, in 1890 they founded their own engine business, Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft. Its purpose was the construction of small, high speed engines they had developed based on the stationary engine technology. They would manufacture small internal combustion engines suitable for use on land, sea, on July 5,1887, Daimler purchased a property in Seelberg Hill previously owned by Zeitler & Missel who had used it as a precious metal foundry. The site covered 2,903 square meters, cost 30,200 Goldmark and they also sold licences for others to make their engine products and Seelberg became a centre of the rapidly growing automobile industry. Daimler ran into problems because sales were not high enough. Not really believing in automobile production the financiers expanded the engine business, as they were selling well. Daimler and Maybach continued to advocate car manufacturing and as an even left DMG for a short period. Daimlers friend, Frederick Simms, persuaded the financiers to take Gottflieb Daimler and their business was re-merged with DMG’s. Daimler was appointed General Inspector, Maybach chief Technical Director and Simms a director of DMG, in 1892, Maybach designed the Phönix, an inline two-cylinder engine fitted with a new carburetor. Later DMGs successful Mercedes models based upon race cars designed by Wilhelm Maybach to the specifications of Emil Jellinek changed the outlook in favour of the automobile. Maybach continued as designer for a while, but quit in 1909 and was replaced by Gottliebs son, DMGs automobile sales took off, particularly with the first Daimler-Mercedes engine designed by Maybach placed into several race cars of 1900 built for Emil Jellinek. That race car was referred to as the Mercedes 35 hp. Production capacity was extended to Untertürkheim, in part due to the model 60s success, the number of DMG employees went from 821 to 2,200
4. Neoplan – Neoplan Bus GmbH is a German automotive company that manufactures buses, trolleybuses and coaches. It is a subsidiary of MAN SE, the company was founded by Gottlob Auwärter in Stuttgart in 1935, and manufactured bodywork for bus and truck chassis. From the very beginning, the designs of the buses produced were considered stylish, after World War II, an all-steel body design was developed, a rarity at that time. The engine was moved to the rear, and the running gear, in 1957, air suspension was made available, improving the ride of the bus for passengers. In 1961, a new bus design, the Hamburg, was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, at a time when most coaches were rounded, bulbous or streamlined, the new design had clear-cut lines with edges and large windows. Developed by the founders eldest son, Albrecht Auwärter, and another student, Swiss national Bob Lee, the design also allowed every passenger to regulate their fresh air supply through a nozzle from two air ducts, commonly seen today. Both Albrecht and Lee joined Neoplan after graduating from the university, Albrecht took over management of the company in 1965, and Bob Lee later became head of Engineering and Design. In 1964, the second son, Konrad Auwärter, developed a double-deck bus design for a service bus as part of his dissertation. The Do-Bus design had low weight, and could carry over 100 passengers and it also featured a low-frame front axle with forward-mounted steering gear that permitted a low flat floor. The double-deck principle was applied to the design, creating a high-capacity comfortable touring vehicle. This vehicle was known as the Skyliner, in 1971, the Cityliner was introduced to the public. This design had a platform above the drivers cab. The vehicle also made use, of reinforced plastic for certain areas of the body. In 1973, the Jetliner was introduced, featuring a large one-piece windshield, with the driver, a second manufacturing facility opened in Pilsting in 1973, and a third opened in Kumasi, Ghana in December 1974 to support increasing orders. In 1975, the Jumbocruiser was launched, a double-deck articulated coach 18 metres long and 4 metres high, the Spaceliner, introduced in 1979 took the Cityliner concept of passenger floor level above the driver, and extended the actual floor above the cab. This kept the height of the lower than a double-decker, at 3.65 metres. A new fourth plant was added in 1981 in Berlin, and Bob Lee led the establishment of a plant in Lamar. In 1984, a plant was added in Honey Brook
