Kaipan: Brand overview

Kaipan was born in the Czech town of Smřovka in 1991, and six years later, it entered the automotive arena. The first car, the Kaipan 47, was based on the classic Lotus Seven roadster and even featured a Lotus engine. This marked the company’s entry into the retro-roadster niche.

At the beginning of the 21st century, Kaipan released another model, the 57, which was equipped with Volkswagen engines, which meant a change in style and performance. Significant for the company was the release of the Kaipan 14 in 2006, the first car with a completely original body. This car was equipped with Škoda engines and other powertrain elements, which emphasized further cooperation with Czech machine builders.

The model was further developed in 2008 with the Kaipan 15, equipped with improved Škoda engines and minor design changes. Production of this model continued until 2011, with a total of about 340 cars produced. In total, Kaipan has produced around 500 roadsters since the company started producing cars in 1997. These are not production cars; they are amazing for those seeking a one-of-a-kind, no-frills driving experience reminiscent of times past.

Today, Kaipan remains true to its craft and produces a limited number of sports cars each year in its workshop in the Czech Republic. Each car is an individual embodiment of retro styling and driving purity, satisfying a discerning clientele of automotive enthusiasts.

Meaning and History

Kaipan Logo History

1991 – today

Kaipan Logo

The Czech car manufacturer uses a logo with an abstract design. In the upper part, there are two yellow crescents oriented with points upwards. They differ in size and are nested inside each other, joining in the center. Between them, a white negative space forms another crescent and a circle. At the bottom is the black word “KAIPAN.” Its typeface resembles Insigne Design’s Aviano Serif Bold but differs in the open shape of the letter “P,” the smoother letter “K,” and the shorter serifs.

The use of yellow crescents and white negative space creates a visually appealing design and symbolizes unity or harmony. The specialized font choice for “KAIPAN” sets the brand apart, giving it a unique personality. The changes in the letters “P” and “K,” as well as the shortened serifs, give the word mark a distinctive character, helping to create a unique visual presence for the brand.
