In the late 1960s, it became time to start work on the design of a new Tatra to take over the role of flagship for the Communist officials. The new model–the T-613 you see here–was the first Tatra styled outside the Tatra factory. The T-613 was intended for use by government officials in Communist countries. Production of the T-613 reached its peak in the late 1970s with approximately 1,500 cars produced annually. The 1980s saw production decrease to a few hundred a year. After the United Nations imposed trade sanctions with client countries and the fall of the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia, sales decreased rapidly. In 1996, only 11 cars were made; Tatra ceased car production in 1998. Now only large industrial trucks are produced.
