European car database
Started in 2003, the Car Models List, Car Models Timeline, Car Models Encyclopedia, Car Models Database, Car Models & Engines Database were all databases available for sale for 10 years until I expanded to American market in 2013, consequently they did not contained “Europe” in their names. All the above were handmade, entering data manually from AutoKatalog car magazines and Wikipedia.
After 2015 I made additional databases for Europe using automated scripts to extract data from websites: the Germany and United Kingdom car databases.

Took 10 hours to write each car model at correct position in the chart, based by year of launch and length in millimeters, using AutoCAD then exported as PDF, useful for garage builders and students or hobbyists researching the car evolution.
After I copied all cars specifications from German automobile club into Excel format, I analyzed it to show you how cars sold in Germany evolved over past 50 years (this analysis apply for whole Europe, 99% of cars sold in Europe are also sold in Germany). I calculated using AVERAGEIFS formulas. Charts made at 18 September 2019 update with 122214 model versions. You can buy Excel database: German Car Database.
