Cisitalia was an Italian automaker. It was founded in 1946 and dissolved in 1964. The company was one of the first companies that produced sports cars in the immediate postwar period, from which later road vehicles were derived. The cars still have an excellent reputation, which derives on the one hand from the sporting successes, on the other hand from the fact that with Ferdinand Porsche, Carlo Abarth and some other engineers temporary top-class staff was involved in the project.
