The 1958 German Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on 3 August 1958 at Nürburgring. It was the eighth race of the 1958 Formula One season.

To increase participation, the organizers opened the field to Formula 2 cars. Also, the race distance was shortened to 15 laps from 22 previously. The two races were run at the same time but the Formula 2 entries (shown in yellow) were not eligible for World Championship points and some sources do not consider these starts in career stats. Peter Collins died after an accident on the 11th lap, as rival Tony Brooks went on to victory.
