You may very well know this car...Its a Trabant! It may not be fast or good but its part of pop culture.
The Trabant, as awfully slow it is, has reached an iconc status, especially in germany. It was the car you got over in the DDR. You had to wait a couple years until your Trabant was made tho, as waiting lists were huge. Everyone in germany will recongnise this car! Also there are a ton of Souveniers involving ths car when you go to Berlin..like A LOT. The little Trabbi was intended as a car for everyone in eastern Germany. Cheap to buy and cheap to run. Crash testing wasnt a thing back in the 60s, so the body panels were made with Duroplast, in rather dirty facilities, creating rather low-quality parts. The little 2-stroke 2 cylinder engine was produced as a cheap and compact package that could quickly be dropped in the car once its time. Electronic gadgets didnt exist back then so the Trabant only had the neccessary things. There were various redesign concepts of the Trabant to bring some life back into it but they unfortunately were never made. It got one redesign in 1984 however, the Trabant 1.1, featuring a 1.1 liter VW Lupo engine and slightly tweaked exterior. The engine unfortunately also was pretty much all they could spend on the redesign to nothing major changed, other than the fact that it has twice the power now. After the Berlin Wall fell and politics changed in eastern Germany, the Trabant was quite quickly discontinued in July 1990.
