The Clément Panhard was a car ahead of its time. The concept behind the Clément Panhard was of a small, inexpensive, and reliable auto - sounds familiar? Something that Henry Ford went on to perfect 10 years after the first Clément Panhard was produced. Over five hundred were built from 1898 to 1903 and today some are still going strong.... well almost!
My hope is to collect as much information about the Clément Panhard as possible and to share that information. I would also like to trace as many surviving cars as possible - I know of 17 that survive in as far off places as Brasil, South Africa, and Estonia. Before creating this website we only knew of four others worldwide.
