The Carrosserie Caruna AG was a Swiss body construction company. "Caruna" stands for Carrosserien und Neuanfertigungen (bodies and remakes). 

Erwin Schill founded the company on March 8, 1965 in Spreitbach in the canton of Aargau. It specialized in body conversions, but also manufactured a small number of its own vehicles. On November 21, 1991, Schill relocated its headquarters to Dietikon in the canton of Zurich. The liquidation was decided in 2007 and ended in 2010.

Caruna built two open vehicles in the 1970s. The first was the spider presented in 1974 on the underbody of the VW-Porsche 914, a rather whimsical roadster with visual borrowings from the beach buggies that were popular at the time.

1974-1976 the Caruna Staccato was built with a self-supporting body and Porsche 911 mechanics. Special features of this car were retractable rear window, cornering lamps and folding headlights. It was slightly more restrained in shape with a wedge-shaped profile. It was first exhibited at the 1977 Geneva Motor Show; this was also the first presentation of the brand in front of an international audience.
