PGO Automobiles is a French car manufacturer, producing exclusive series' of sports cars. The brand operates in the same special market as Lotus, Wiesmann, Donkervoort and Morgan. Their cars are considered an appropriate solution for connoisseurs seeking individuality and style.

The French company was started in 1985 by two avid automobile fans: Prévôt Gilles and Olivier whose initials formed the brand name: PGO

PGO began production by manufacturing replicas but soon moved on to substantiating their own designs into full scale vehicles.

The first of these was the Speedster II, this was a two-seater sports car in a retro style but with a modern specification. It was first seen at the 2000 Paris Motor Show.

By 2005 51% of the company had been purchased by subsidiaries of the Al Sayer Group, whose financial support allowed increased product research and development and resulted in the Cévennes roadster.[1]

At the 2008 Paris Motor Show, a new model was launched called the Hemera.[2]
