Wiesmann is an automobile manufacturer in Germany. The company was founded in 1985 by the brothers Martin Wiesmann (graduate engineer) and Friedhelm Wiesmann (bachelor of commerce). The cars are manufactured by hand in Dülmen. The Wiesmann logo portrays a gecko, as Wiesmann autos "stick to the road like geckos to a wall".

The company originally manufactured custom hard-tops for convertibles, which they continue to do. The first roadster left the workshop in 1993. As of 2006, they produce the Wiesmann MF 3 and MF 30 roadsters and the Wiesmann GT MF 4 Coupé, all of which utilize engine and transmission components supplied by BMW.

Wiesmann plans to begin exporting vehicles to the USA by 2010.<ref>Autoweek Wiesmann Article</ref>
