German sports car manufacturer Wiesmann has reportedly filed for bankruptcy. The filing, which was made to a German district court in Münster, didn't specify any of the financial details that led Martin and Friedhelm Wiesmann to this point. The small-scale manufacturer's collapse isn't a massive surprise, as it's product lineup hasn't changed a great deal over the years. Still, the funky coupes and roadsters have always been admired from afar by the Autoblog team.
The thing about retro styling is that, since it's anchored not in the contemporary but in the classical, it doesn't age. So you may be as surprised as we were to discover that the Wiesmann Roadster has been on the market for 18 years now.
