Germany.
The 4-stroke [Otto cycle] internal combustion engine was invented in 1876 by one Nicolaus Otto in Cologne, Germany. It ran on coal gas. Herr Otto was co-founder of Deutz AG, which today is the largest manufacturer of air-cooled diesel engines in the world.
Gottlieb Daimler, who had worked off-and-on for Mr. Otto as Technical Director at Deutz, formed his own company, Daimler AG. He took Ottos engine concept, made it lighter, smaller, and faster, and modified it for operation with liquid benzene [gasoline], which at that time was a by-product of petroleum crude, sold in drugstores as a cleaner and solvent. With his partner Wilhelm Maybach, Mr. Daimler installed his motor into a wooden-framed bicycle in 1885, thus inventing the first motorcycle. They then motorized a horse-drawn carriage in 1886, inventing the first 4-wheeled motorcar. They built the first true automobile designed specifically to be powered by a gasoline engine in 1889
