BMW or Bayerische Motoren Werke has officially been called this name in 1922. However, there were intertwined struggles and stories before it was named as is. In 1913, Rapp Motorenwerke headed by Karl Friedrich Rapp, supplied fighter aircrafts for the German Empire’s World War I needs. This is when BMW’s first invention was made—the BMW IIIa airplanes.
Rapp’s success was shortlived, so Austrians Franz Josef Popp and Max Friz took and managed the company. The two partnered with Gustav Flugmaschinefabrik owned by Gustav Otto that gave birth to Bayersiche Flugzeugwerke in March 1916, which was later named to the BMW we know today. Many said that BMW’s logo symbolizes aircraft propellers, but others suggest that it is actually a combination of the Rapp Motorenwerke logo together with the white and blue color of the Bavarian flag.
BMW began creating its name in the aircraft industry, but after World War I and in the establishment of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany wasn’t allowed to build aircraft engines of the same specifications. BMW shifted to producing motorcycles and cars in 1923. In 1928, BMW bought the Fahrzeugfabrik Eisenach, an automobile company which built the car Austin 7 from Dixi Marque. With a little tweak and development here and there, the first BMW car was born—the BMW 3/15, which enjoyed popularity throughout Germany together with other BMW luxury cars at that time.
Not long after that success came World War II that hit BMW to the core. Even if it tried to cope up by producing motorcycles in 1948 and producing cheaper and smaller cars called the Isetta or also known as the bubble car in 1952, BMW almost got owned by its rival company Daimler-Benz. Like a history repeating itself, two German industrialists Herbert Quandt and Harald Quandt invested on BMW, which support allowed for the creation of the successful BMW700 and BMW motorcycles sold in the US.
BMW’s story became smoother flowing thereafter producing models like the BMW New Class, BMW 5 Series, BMW 3 Series, BMW 7, which are luxurious sedans, and BMW 6 Series which are extravagant coupes in 1962-1978. The BMW M Series, BMW M, BMW M5, and BMW M3, made classy and deluxe road cars available to more drivers 1978-1986.
It is also during these years that BMW entered different industries through BMW Motorsport, BMW Golfsport, BMW Yachtsport and BMW mountains.
The four-cylinder design building of BMW in Munich was also built in the 1970s, which opened door to more research, studies, and production of technologically advanced and forward thinking car designs.
