As long as we’re on the subject of cars from East Germany – Trabant!!
The saddest little, underpowered, over-polluting car ever. But so CUTE!!
Introduced in 1957, the car was named Trabant in honor of the Sputnik sattellite. Trabant means “fellow traveler” in latin, which is the latin way to say “Sattellite.” They have become a cultural icon. They are affectionately known as “Trabbi.”
