Welcome to Studebaker Motor Company Inc.
Today is August 8th, 2016.
In 2002, Tom Raines, (from Texas), thought it was a good idea to resurect the name, so he incorporated, started a webpage, made a few calls, and got the interest going. I met Tom Raines in 2005 while visiting a friend in Texas. In 2006 I became his partner, then purchased remaining stock in 2008, then moved the company to Colorado, and reincorporated. Over the years, I've traveled, met with industry-ralated people, and even visited South Bend. Many people have contacted us to inquire if we are accepting donations, or selling stock. My answer is this... please contact me to discuss your interest.
Here's who I am.
I'm a guy who has always liked Studebaker vehicles. As a young man, in the 50's and 60's, I saw lot's of Studebakers on the road. Then one day, not so many cars on the road. Now, I rarely see any Studebaker's on the road. So... hopefully, one day in the near future, I'll be able to manufacture Studebaker vehicles that are in some way reminiscent of classic Studebakers, yet brought into the 21st Century. If possible, reopen factories that have recentily been closed (Ford, Chrysler, GM), and employ Americans in those manufacturing and assembly plants, which shall be on American soil. I desire to make vehicles that not only compete, but have a significant cutting edge in a highly competitive world market.
Click on "Overview" then scroll down to read what is planned. Please be advised, the SUV shown on this website does have a certain appeal, however, may or may not be representative of future Studebaker concept vehicles. That said, with slight modifications, it is a possibility.
