The automotive industry in Germany is one of the largest employers in the country, with a labor force of over 747,000 (2009) working in the industry.

Being home to the modern car, the German automobile industry is regarded as the most competitive and innovative in the world, and has the third highest automobile production in the world, and fourth highest total motor vehicle production. With an annual output close to six million and a 35.6% share of the European Union (2008).

Germany is considered to be the birthplace of the automobile, as motor-car pioneers Karl Benz and Nikolaus Otto independently developed four-stroke internal combustion engines in the late 1870s, with Benz fitting his design to a coach in 1887, which led to the modern day motor car. By 1901, Germany was producing about 900 cars a year. In 1926, Daimler-Benz was formed from the predecessor companies of Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler and produced cars under the marque of Mercedes-Benz. In 1916 BMW was founded, but didn't start auto production until 1928.

Below is a collection of 18 interesting vintage snapshots of German ladies with their cars in the 1920s.
