Until 2001, ZF included the Austrian Steyr, founded in 1864. The company had a notable history in the automotive market, since in 1929 Ferdinand Porsche came to the position of chief engineer, who disagreed with Daimler-Benz. Led by him, the Austria 21/100PS large luxury car was designed, which had the first ever engine with removable heads, independent rear wheel suspension, was equipped with Lockheed all-wheel drive hydraulic brakes.
This model was not released to the series, as the creditor Steyr requested technical support from Austro-Daimler. Offended, Porsche left the company and founded his own bureau. Subsequently, he designed the first Volks-wagen for the Third Reich, Porsche has been constantly collaborating with Volkswagen to this day.
