Wanderer was a German automobile manufacturer from 1911 to 1939.

History

The first two or three seater models used four cylinder 1145 cc and 1220 cc engines. The 1220 cc model lasted until 1925. The first six cylinder model appeared in 1928. The company formed part of Auto Union with Horch, Audi and DKW from 1932. The next Wanderer model (1692 cc four cylinder) was similar to a parallel DKW model. In 1933, an Audi model was equipped with a Wanderer-built 1963 cc six cylinder ohv engine. The top model from 1936 to 1939 was W50, propelled by a 2257 cc six cylinder engine. There were also sporting fours (W24 and W25) and another six cylinder model of 2632 cc (W23).

Wanderer cars were always admired for their high quality and sporting character. The Siegmar and Schönau plants in Saxony were destroyed during World War II, closing this chapter in the history of automobiles.
