The importance of the Trabant transcends its worthiness as an automobile. The intense struggle to design and produce the cars under the Communist regime shows how perseverance and a willingness to think outside the box helped a group of ambitious engineers overcome enormous hurdles and preserve their rights to free thought. Amazingly these men made significant advances in engineering despite a lack of tools, supplies and financial support. It is unfortunate that political red tape and a depressed economy hampered the further refinement of the Trabant during its thirty year production, as most see the iconic little car as a mere symbol for the failure of the communist government and its mismanaged economy.
