Fiat is an Italian automobile manufacturer based in Turin. Fiat was founded in 1899 by a group of investors including Giovanni Agnelli. During its history, which spans more than a century, Fiat has also manufactured railway engines and carriages, military vehicles, and aircraft. As of 2009, the Fiat group (not inclusive of its subsidiary Chrysler) was the world's ninth-largest carmaker and the largest in Italy. Fiat's first car was the 3½ CV, which strongly resembled its contemporary the Benz and had a 697-cc boxer twin engine. In 1903, Fiat produced its first truck. In 1908, the first Fiat aircraft engine was produced. Since the end of the 1960s, Fiat has made a few acquisitions, purchasing Autobianchi (1967), Ferrari and Lancia (1969), Alfa Romeo (1986), and Maserati (1993). In 2009, Fiat and Chrysler announced their intention to form a global alliance in which Fiat might obtain a 70% share in Chrysler under certain conditions.
