The Škoda 100/110 were two variations of a rear-engined, rear-wheel drive car that was produced by Czechoslovakian manufacturer AZNP in Mladá Boleslav between 1969 and 1976. Engine sizes were 1.0 litre and 1.1 litre respectively. It was the first Škoda car being produced over a million units. Derived Škoda 110 R coupé (1970–1980), had outline similar to the Porsche of the time, with much lower price and performance.

The 120 S and the 130 RS were Sport/Rallye cars, produced in a small number.

Cultural references[edit]

In the 1988 film The Unbearable Lightness of Being, protagonist Tomas drives an S 100. As the action takes place against the backdrop of the Prague Spring of 1968 and its violent aftermath, the use of a car that only entered production a year later is unintentionally anachronistic.[2]

The Škoda 100 is the vehicle driven by the protagonist in Ivan Mládek's 1978 single Jožin z bažin.
