The initiators

By combining history and innovation, we would like to design an automobile under the worldwide known brand Trabant, which is simpler, lighter, significantly more cost-effective and cleaner – and yet full of character, individuality and fun.

IndiKar – Individual Karosseriebau GmbH
IndiKar has already made a superb name for itself as a manufacturer of individual car bodies – but is also a highly competent contact for building prototypes. Thrilled by the “newTrabi” idea, it was here that the concept car of the Trabant successor “Trabant nT” was developed.

Nils Poschwatta Design
Nils Poschwatta was born in Schwerin and majored in industrial design. Beginning in 2002, he worked for VW as a “Transportation Designer”. Out of enthusiasm for the newTrabi, he decided to devote himself to the project full-time and came up with the entire design-work for the “Trabant nT”.

Herpa Miniaturmodelle GmbH
Herpa is a manufacturer of high-quality vehicle- and airplane miniatures based in Dietenhofen, Bavaria. In 2007, Herpa had the idea of putting the Trabant back on the road again in a new shape. A first draft of the “newTrabi” obtained so much approval, that the idea has become a project for the German motor industry.
