The 2007 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season was the eighth Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season since the series' resumption in 2000.

The season started dramatically with massive crash on opening lap of Hockenheim race. As a result, Tom Kristensen and Alexandre Prémat were forced to sit out races.

The Drivers' Championship was won by Mattias Ekström.

The season also included many controversial moments. In Lausitzring, the safety car caught the wrong driver and this shook up race results almost completely. Organizers admitted that Mika Häkkinen deserved the win and Paul di Resta second place, but other drivers were not in the places where they should have been. As a result, half points were awarded.

At Zandvoort, Audi drivers swapped positions in the final straight, giving win to Martin Tomczyk instead of Prémat. Audi boss denied the presence of team orders and instead told that Prémat did the move on his own.

At Barcelona, Häkkinen collided with Martin Tomczyk and Daniel la Rosa with Mattias Ekström. This and couple of other incidents caused that all Audi drivers withdrew from the race with nine laps to go. Häkkinen and la Rosa were excluded from the race (which was meaningless as both drivers retired in the incidents), fined and given 10-place grid penalty for final race of the season.
