Along with the design of the people’s car, i.e., the Volkswagen Beetle, Dr. Ferdinand Porsche was also working to create a people’s tractor. So he went about his work in 1934, creating prototypes having air-cooled 1-cylinder, 2-cylinder, 3-cylinder, and 4-cylinder engines with power output ranging from 15–155 hp.
After the end of World War II, Germany, which was devastated, had need of several pieces of farm equipment. As the government at the time supported only existing farm equipment manufacturing companies, Dr. Porsche could not make one on his own.
So he signed an agreement with a German firm (Allgaier) to produce his tractors including this R22 that was made between 1949-1952.
