    Tricky one, because both Porsche and Lamborghini built tractors… but Lamborghini was the one who built tractors before building cars… Porsche had already built cars before building tractors….

    Not so tough if you’re an all-around automotive history buff and reniassance car guy like me! The story, as I recall, goes something like this: It seems that back around 1960 Ferrucio Lamborghini bought a new Ferrari 250GT and was very disappointed with it. When Enzo Ferrari refused to even talk to him about his complaints, Lamborghini swore he’d build a better sports car himself. The answer is C, Lamborghini.

    (There is a single-page article about the first production Lamborghini sports car in the July issue of ‘HEMMINGS MOTOR NEWS’. No, it doesn’t have gullwing doors!)

  4. I think it was David Brown, from Aston Martin, that used to manufacture tractors.

    Porsche built tractors, red diesel tractors.

  8. c. Ferruccio Lamborghini. He only started building cars because Ferrari dismissed his complaints about a clutch problem.

    Take care,
