Initially, PROTON manufactured badge engineered cars between 1985 and 2000 for Mitsubishi Motors. Ever since, PROTON has already made indigenously designed models and is spread out to 26 countries worldwide, majority from Asia.

Before, PROTON was owned by Khazanah Nasional, a government agency handling primary investments for corporations. Later on, the ownership was passed to DRB-HICOM, a conglomerate from Malaysia as well.
Right now, PROTON is still in an internal and structural development. Since it is relying solely on the available domestic market, it still has a long way to go with the acquisition of a new partner, a new owner, and a new chairman. They are also heading to launch new models in order for them to gain enough international attention from clients and investors.

Proton is also active in motorsports. They officially participated in the British Touring Car Championship from 2002 to 2004 with the team name Petronas Syntium Proton or for short, Team PSP. The first two years of their league was headed by English and Scottish drivers, Phil Bennett and David Leslie, respectively.

Then on 2004, a new driver was added to the league in the name of Shaun Watson-Smith from South Africa and from Malaysia, Farige Hairuman. Unfortunately for PROTON, the motorsport challenge failed since they only won 2 races out of the grand total of 95 and then decided to withdraw their team on the 2004 season.
