  • Henry Ford introduced the first mass-produced automobile on the market. The 2-seater Model Tcost $825. By 1927, when the Model T was phased out, production had become so streamlined that dealers were able to reduce the price to $300. While Ford did not invent theassembly line, he made it so much more efficient that it revolutionized the industry. In the very early days, it took 12 hours to produce an automobile. By 1913, when Ford opened his new, more efficient Model T factory, it took only 93 minutes; by the time the last Model Ts rolled off the line in 1927, a car was produced every 24 seconds. (1908)
