Information about Dacon 

Dacon, a niche Brazilian automobile manufacturer, has carved a unique space in the automotive landscape. Founded in 1978 by Paulo Goulart and his partners, Dacon’s journey began with a passion for creating distinctive, customized vehicles that catered to the specific tastes of the Brazilian market. Their initial offering, the Dacon 828, emerged as a compact and practical solution for the bustling streets of São Paulo, featuring a rear-mounted engine and a body heavily inspired by the Porsche 928.

Over the years, Dacon made a name for itself with innovative designs and a focus on customization, enabling buyers to own something truly bespoke. However, the economic challenges in Brazil during the 1980s and stringent automotive regulations posed significant hurdles, leading to a slowdown in production.

Today, Dacon’s legacy is somewhat of a mixed bag. While the brand ceased large-scale manufacturing, it still holds a cult status among car enthusiasts in Brazil. Its commitment to quality and customization during its operational years set a precedent in the Brazilian automotive industry, showcasing the potential for small-scale manufacturers to impact a market dominated by larger players. Dacon’s story remains a fascinating chapter in the annals of automotive history, reflecting both the potential and challenges faced by niche car makers.
