Blitzkarren, 1924

 

The "Blitzkarren" ("lightning cart") - an asthmatic 2 hp vehicle

This is the first self-constructed vehicle of Borgward from the year 1924, a little, easily to be steered and cheap transporter on three wheels. Because of the low motor efficiency it was laughed at and its "asthmatically 2 h.p." were called "the visiting-card of a poor fool". But Borgward offered with the "Blitzkarren" the right car at the right time and months later the 100th "Blitzkarren" left the factory. Front loader and larger transporter vehicles followed.Borgward Oldtimer Forum

Hansa Konsul Cabriolet, 1931

The Hansa Konsul - the new middle class car

When in 1929 Borgward became managing director of Hansa Lloyd AG he pushed the construction of a new middle-class car as the cars with huge eight cylinder engines had nearly no market. In 1930 the Hansa Matador was published and a year later the Hansa Konsul. Optionally this car could be bought with a six-cylinder continental engine or a four cylinder from Hansa Lloyd. It was the first passenger car that was constructed and built under the leadership of Borgward and on account of the modest success the production of the Hansa Konsul was already stopped in 1932.Borgward Oldtimer Forum
