|Detroit Cyclecar Company|
|Also called||Detroit Cyclecar, Detroit Speedster, Little Detroit Speedster, Saginaw Speedster|
The cyclecar, also marketed as the Detroit Speedster and Little Detroit Speedster, was designed by Ernest Weigold, former engineer for the E.R. Thomas Motor Company, and chief engineer for Herreshoff.
Heavier than most cyclecars at 850 lb (390 kg), it was offered with a four-cylinder water-cooled engine of 91 cu in (1.49 L), costing $375 (equivalent to $10,282 in 2021). The car was a side by side two-seat roadster on a 92-inch wheelbase.
In 1914 the company relocated to Saginaw, Michigan, where A. R. Thomas promoted a new cyclecar company. The car was built at the Brooks Manufacturing Company factory and known as the Saginaw Speedster for a short time.
