There’s nothing wrong with being proud of your national car industry. But pleeasssee, a little bias..

Please make the remark that the Pobeda was still available as brand new car in 1957 on the market.

It’s only soviet fault (or not, if considering long-term conditions of particular market of USSR – spare parts coverage/endurance/costs etc.) that they offered technically obsolete car for Western consumers (which had no chance to win the comparision against almost any western car).

A correct comparison would be GAZ M-20 vs 1946 Chevrolet Styleline, Fleetmaster or even the Deluxe.

I guess the Pobeda was trying to compete in comparable class?

Now here’s a suggestion, Russia: buy the rights to Aptera’s three-wheeler, ditch the expensive battery power, throw in the Honda Goldwing engine, and sell 80mpg high-performance for $25000. The established players’ll never do it, they’re invested in the conventional.
