Car Brands Full List

A List of Every Car Brand, Manufacturer & Aftermarket Tuner

Here is our compiled list of all automotive manufacturers over the years. We probably missed a few but for car guys these are the ones to know. We decided to split the list into popular car makers and then alphabetically to make finding things a little easier.

Note that this car brand list includes companies that are still around as well as those that are long gone. The only real criteria is that the automotive brand made a car that we consider worth of “car enthusiast” status.  Please let us know if there are any car companies missing or if we have got anything wrong. We hope you find this useful.
