Tatra is not dead! In fact the company is alive and well and continuing to build the tough, unkillable trucks that made the company famous. Tatra trucks continue the technology and design principles developed by Hans Ledwinka and his team in 1924, including the central tube chassis, independently sprung and driven half axles, bevel drive and air-cooled engines. Tatra trucks regularly compete in the world's toughest endurance challenge, the Paris-Dakar race, with great success.
