In 1921, Hans Ledwinka was hired by Tatra to design a brand new automobile: the T11. which was introduced at Prague’s Autosalon in 1923.

Introduced at Prague’s Autosalon in 1923, the T11 was quickly the talking point of the show. Equipped with a flat air-cooled two cylinder engine with 1056 cc, backbone connecting the front of the car with the drivetrain, and rear wheels on swinging axles, the T11 become wildly popular with this innovative technology. After its production ended, there were 10,000 T11s and T12s manufactured in a period of eight years.

The T75 is the last automobile built on this design. The production in the years to come will switch to rear engines, but keeping the same basic idea for the body and the suspension. The backbone and swing axles, a Tatra trademark, is still used for its large trucks made today. In 1934, the engine changed to an air-cooled four cylinder, with a capacity of 1688 cc. 4,000 T 75 will be made, with the last ones being delivered in 1939.
