– Following WW II the East Germans (Russian profession zone) identified a ’39 prototype (with a new straight-three / two-stroke motor in the former DKW factories and offered that auto as the F8 at the 1948 Leipziger Messe.
– Much more than a yr later the F9 was offered.
– The initially one,880 units were created in Zwickau, at the former AUDI-factories. The later cars (1953) in Eisenach (A.W.E., interior designation EMW 309).
