Horch 8/24 hp Phaeton, 1912

After August Horch left the company he had founded in 1909, the Horch factory initially stuck with the technical/design legacy of the company founder. With advancing engine technology, a customer group raised its voice in favour of smaller, less expensive cars. To meet this request, the Horch factory launched the entry-level models 6/18 hp and 8/24 in 1911. These were powered by modern block engines.
