The Abbott-Detroit was an American luxury automobile manufactured between 1909 and 1919. It was considered powerful and well-designed, and had a Continental engine. The cars were guaranteed for life by 1913, when electric lighting and starting had been standardized.

By 1916, production of these cars had reached 15 to 20 units a day, so the company moved from Detroit to a larger facility in Cleveland. This proved too stressful on the company's finances, and they declared bankruptcy in April 1918.
Models that Abbott-Detroit offered included:
- 34/45 hp (25/30 kW) Foredoor Roadster
- Limousine (1913 model)
- 44/40 hp (33/37 kW) Battleship Roadster
- 34 hp (25 kW) Model F
- 31 hp (24 kW) Model L
- 22 hp (20 kW) Model K
Prices ranged from US$1700 for the Foredoor to US$3050 for the Limousine.
