Škoda originated on the back of other commercial successes. After making the first motorcycle in 1900, Laurin and Klement expanded their production to include automobiles; the Voiturette A became an enduring blueprint for classic cars in the Czech region. Unfortunately, small enterprise can only go so far. In a post-war climate, the arms manufacturer Škoda Works sought to buy out Laurin and Klement, extending its commercial reach and striving to become the most successful automobile company in Czechoslovakia.
During the 80’s and 90’s, Škoda flagged in quality, producing technology comparable to mid-century innovations. The Favorit eased mounting negativity, as Škoda outsourced design and motor licencing, using their own 1289cc engine; the car was deemed fit for release in Western markets, though a considerable void still remained between Skoda and Western European designs.
The modern Škoda has only been available to Australian audiences for six years, taking a long break from Australasian distribution between 1983 and 2007. Though the badge remains, Škoda have shrugged off critical commentary of quality, completing a successful image 180 after Volkswagen adopted the portfolio. Škoda has finally come of age, navigating the mistakes and quirks of a manufacturing adolescence and ready to tackle the Australian motor scene.
