FaerGruber

Outdone by Nothing

Pronounced (German): FehGuber
Pronounced (English): FaerGroober

Founding:

It was 1942, and Germany’s victory seemed more and more unrealistic, but Marius Faehrmann didn’t think so, he hated how he had to live because of the war, but he knew how powerful the military was, and so he expected the Allies to get crushed under the iron fist of the Axis Powers.
Faehrmann’s company, Faehrmann Motorwerk produced engines for Axis tanks and planes, but he originally wanted to produce cars for the world, sadly, the war got in the way.
When Germany surrendered in 1945, he had money to do what he wanted, but Marius didn’t know how he would fulfill his dreams, until he met young Robert Gruber who was great with cars. It took them four years to work out the deals and vehicles, but they settled on calling the company FaerGruber Autos, and releasing their first vehicle in 1949, one family car, the A-1 with a 2.66 Litre Inline 4.
The sales for the A-1 were great, and so in 1952 they began selling it outside of Europe, with much success, as it was a very premium car with comfortable seats and a radio.

Timeline:

In 1954, Viktor Seydel, an ex professional race car driver, and current car tuner, met Gruber and Faehrmann, and FaerGruber Autos hired him to lead the racing division of FG GmbH, FG Seydel, and in 1974, FG Seydel was expanded to modify production FaerGrubers and the performance models named SFG.
In 1967, FaerGruber hired Erhart Kehlmann to heavily modify FaerGruber’s to be most luxurious, to rival very luxurious companies without having to design completely new cars. The division was called Kelmann, and they made pullmans as well.
In 1984, all LKWs, Kastenwagens, and Lastwagens were now produced and marketed as FG Commercial, and was now another division of FG GmbH, along with FaerGruber, FG Seydel, SFG, Faehrmann Motorwerk, and Kelmann Luxury.
In 1996 FG bought Gresham for more than 600 million USD.
In 2004, the Kelmann Luxury division was ended, because of unsatisfactory sales due to marketing strategies and rivals.
In 2014, the Kelmann Luxury division was re-incorporated into FG Kelmann, and could be bought at FG dealerships now, with modified FaerGrubers. FG Kelmann still produces pullmans to this day.

FaerGruber UL Series Update

The new 1997 UL series has received it’s most major update. The UL series will be divided into 2 different series, ULC and UL. They will be based off the same chassis and platform, and will have nearly identical styling. The ULC is a modular commercial light truck and light utility vehicle, with a simple interior and 2+6 seating. It will be a vehicle primarily used for military, towing, light transport, and off-road purposes. The UL will be a luxury off-road vehicle with a luxurious interior, modern entertainment, and technology.

The UL series will have a new model every 7 years, without facelifts. The engine will most likely change, as well as the platform, chassis, interior, design (non-major) etc.

ULC Series Nomenclature:

ABCD
A- U Means utility tires, D Means Off-road tires
B- L Mean low suspension, H Means high suspension
C- U Means utility suspension, D Means Off-road suspension

The new TF is a Supercar that you can use every day. The TF gets 43MPG (UK), more than most sports cars, with room enough for most commutes. Unlike most supercars, the TF has great visibility, with a rear camera and cameras in place of door mirrors.
Just because the TF is great at daily driving, doesn’t mean it isn’t wonderful at everything. The top trim TFR can get to 62mph in just 2.7 seconds, and can get up to 210mph if you keep going. The TF can also be used as a Grand Touring car, as it is a beautiful elegant car as well as being a track monster.

So what on earth is under the hood of the TFR? I’m guessing a V8 of some sort - probably twin-turbo. As for that stretch limo, I suspect you made that screenshot of it through clever photo editing.


#9

Excerpt from the fgauto.us website:
The TFR has a 4.9 liter V8 producing over 700 BHP, with a redline if 7000RPM (maybe 7500 I forget). The TF lineup has carbon fiber panels and a light steel chassis, making the TFR very agile.

No actually, it was a very sloppy job that I did in the wrong way, and instead of redoing it the right way, I spent more than 3 hours “fixing” it, although I’m glad you think it doesn’t look that way, thanks!
If you look at the rear door handle area, you can see where I messed up.

1996 Lore Post

Taken from Bloomberg

FG GmbH buys Gresham Limited

FG GmbH recently purchased Gresham Limited for an estimated 604 Million USD. Gresham is a high end luxury brand, targeted for the richest of the rich, and it was previously self owned, but since sales are decreasing, they were sold to FG GmbH. FG currentley owns FaerGruber, FG Seydel, SFG, Faehrmann Motorwerk, and Kelmann. That last one is important, because Kelmann is targeted to the same buyers as Gresham, which was one of the main rivals of Kelmann. This, of course, makes things interesting, as what will FG do now with Gresham and Kelmann, as they are targeted towards the same group? Will they bring Gresham more upmarket? Will they bring Kelmann downmarket? Bringing Gresham upmarket would be hard, as they are already of the most expensive new cars for sale currentley, and bringing Kelmann downmarket would bring them closer to FaerGruber itself, which would also decrease sales. We have yet to see.

FG GmbH announces Gresham Plan

3 years after FG bought Gresham not much has changed, but FG just announced that they will begin major changes in 2002. In 2002, all Gresham models will use engine provided by FG, and, taken from a spokesperson for FG; “Gresham Limited will produce even more special vehicles than they already do,”. We suspect this means that Gresham will have more limited production vehicles than they already do, and we have received information that the prices will not change by a considerable margin. We also hope that this means that the “We make the cars for you, we know what you want” gimmick will change to a more personalized experience than it is currently, even if only slightly.
Kelmann also will receive a change around the same time, and they will begin to be more produced than they are right now. Also, they will not be hugely different than normal FaerGrubers, because currentley, the only similarities are the looks and the frame.

2004 Lore Post

Kelmann Luxury now defunct

We inform you Kelmann luxury vehicles will no longer be produced, as the sales figures have not been sufficient for the company to remain relevant. We are sorry for this, if you own a Kelmann vehicle, we will still provide maintenance for your car.

The most forgettable naming system I can recall right now. And one of the most copy pasted lineup I’ve seen. Good job on outgermaning the Germans. Though I’m not really sure if it’s as good in being a car company.


#18

Do you mean the design?


#19

Yup.
