Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz both patented automobiles in the same year (I believe 1889, but I could well be wrong on this). The two inventors were competitors at the time. It wasn't until nearly 30 years later that the two men's companies merged. Therefore, technically it would be Daimler-Benz, although they were the third of these four companies to come into existance as we know them today, behind Oldsmobile and Ford. Volkswagen came about in the early 1930's and actually started manufacturing shortly before WW II.
