Wiesmann GmbH is a German automobile manufacturer based in Dülmen, Germany. The company was founded in 1988 by two brothers, engineer Martin Wiesmann and businessman Friedhelm Wiesmann. The cars are manufactured by hand in Dülmen. The Wiesmann logo portrays a gecko, as they claim their cars “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 had plans to begin exporting vehicles to the USA by 2010, but recent reports indicate that Wiesmann has no immediate plans to sell vehicles in the United States because of exchange rates and the high costs of modifying and testing the cars in order to make them road-legal there. On August 14, 2013 Wiesmann filed for insolvency at the local court in Münster. Later The management board of the Wiesmann corporation has filed the application to dismiss the insolvency proceedings due to abolition of the insolvency reasons. The creditors’ meeting is postponed to December 16, 2013. As of early April 2014, discussions have been held with a UK-based consortium, CMMW, to take over Wiesmann and resume production.
