German car brand Borgward revived after five decades

Borgward was founded by Carl F.W. Borgward in 1919 and then went bankrupt in 1961. Not many people have obviously heard of this car brand, but they will likely hear more as after over 50 years, the company has been revived by Christian Borgward, grandson of founder Carl F.W. Borgward, to whom it is a childhood dream come true.

Borgward plans to introduce their plans and show something new at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show on March 3.

What exactly is hard to tell, though the video teaser shows us a 50s inspired sports coupe.

Brogward was a big player during its life between 1919 and 1961 with a large range of commercial vehicles, trucks, buses, fire engines, boats, electric cars, sports cars and even helicopters. For example the 1949 Borgward Hansa 1500 was the first German saloon with an aerodynamic pontoon body, the precursor of modern automotive styling.
