Goggomobil was a series of microcars produced in the Bavarian town Dingolfing after World War II by Glas. 214,313 sedans, 66,511 coupes and 3,667 transport vans and pickups were built from 1955-1969.
The Goggomibil TS 2+2 coupe were introduced at the 1957 IFMA show alongside the improved T sedan. It was available as the TS250, the TS300 and the TS400 the numbers reflecting the approximate engine size in cubic centimeters. The only major change to the TS coupe was the change from rear-hinged suicide doors to front-hinged conventional doors in 1964. The TS coupe was always 10 to 20 percent more expensive than the T sedan.
