    The gogomobile was a very popular vehicle in Europe durring the war. It featured a rotary engine which is only seen on modern aircraft vehicles today

    Mazda uses rotary engines. Good cars, but who knows how to work on a rotary around this neck of the woods- without a ridiculous bill after.
    Stick with the V's and inlines... Po folk advice.

    The first production car with a rotary engine was this one:

    As a little boy, the Goggos were quite common in southern Germany, you don't need a proper driving license for it. Both cars and the rotary engine (invented by Felix Wankel) had nothing to do with WW2.
    Felix Wankel himself worked for the Luftwaffe, but that's a different story.
