1962 Goggomobil TS-300

Hans Glas GmbH built mircocars between 1955 and 1969 in the Bavarian town of Dingolfing. Three models were built on the Goggomobil platform including the Goggomobil T sedan, the Goggomobil TL van, and the Goggomobil TS coupe. Power was from an air-cooled, two-stroke, two-cylinder unit originally having a displacement size of 250 cc. This would later rise to 300cc and finally 400cc. Getrag built the electric pre-selective transmission and manual clutch. The suspension was an independent setup comprised of coil springs with swing axles.

The TS 300 had a Glas 2-stroke engine displacing 298cc and had a compression ratio of 6.0:1. It produced 15 horsepower and 17.4 lb-ft of torque. It had a top speed of nearly 60 mph and could go from zero-to-fifty mph in around 30 seconds.
