With the right combination of technology and human innovation, Proton strives to achieve its dream of having Proton cars driven in every country around the world and its new spirit of Daring to Dare provides just the impetus.
The Proton's mark of pride found on every Proton car features a snarling tiger, displaying strength and courage, and symbolizing the company's boldness of competing in the highly aggressive world of international automotive manufacturing. Of the 11 car-producing nations around the globe, Malaysia, the smallest and youngest car manufacturer can today proudly lay claim to having successfully produced a car from scratch in only 20 years, half the time taken by other well-established names in the motoring world. The Proton Gen2 has concluded the full circle of the company's evolution - from car assembler to a full-fledged automotive engineering company thriving on Malaysian talent, innovation and technology. Its launch in February 2004 also marked the unveiling of the Proton Platinum logo - the molten tiger - to signify premier products and services pledged to all customers of Proton.
