Haha Tatra the dynosaur car. Rear engine and rear drive. Driving the car feels like riding unicycle. The front is so light.
The 603 and 613 models vere only sold to state companies and communist party. They were used for the big cheese people. Quite uneconomical car with very bad stability and shoddy workmanship.

Here is picture of T603 engine compartment. Notice the engine is actually located BEHIND the rear axle.




Here is Tatra V570 from 1933. This is the car that was the model for Ferdy Porsches Bug. Ferdy worked for Tatra before the WWII.



BTW, the rice movement started in Czechoslovakia in 1967. I bet you did not know that.

I love the integration with the cars computer. That is great. Writing the software for that must have been a bitch.
