'The Trabant Is Over The Edge'

Welcome to a snark free MotorWeek Theater.

MotorWeek's former head writer, Martin Peters, discovered Trabant on a random trip to Germany for the show. He tells a pretty great story about how he found the car.


His example has a two cylinder, two stroke engine with an astounding 27 horsepower. I let out an audible laugh when he takes to the track against a Porsche.

Seriously. This is great. No tongue in cheekiness today. Enjoy!

MotorWeek Theater is our showcase of some of our favorite classic reviews from public television's finest motoring program. How does this video only have 4,948 views on YouTube? It's seriously wonderful.
