This is a normal post Cyclecars, as they were used to be called, go back to well before the war
But just after the war, everything was in short supply. Cars were considered a rare luxury. Cars were build for export, and the few sold in Britain had an enormous purchase tax levied on them. That, combined with hefty road fund tax and insurance, left even modest cars out of reach of the plebs. Three wheelers however, were classified as motorbikes.

www.goodreads.com/book/show/2464806.The_Peenemunde_Raid

This book is a seriously bleak read. According to the auther:
The raids put the V weapons back by a couple of months max (hard to estimate)
The majority of the casualties were Polish prisoners.
The scientists weren't wiped out at all, if I remember correctly, most weren't even there.

Some accounts say the delay was maybe 2 weeks.

Not arguing, what the fuck do I know, just an alternative viewpoint if folks find it interesting. It's a fucking bleak and depressing read, be warned

This is a normal post according to the wikipedia article on Jeannie Rousseau, which seems to have been edited last by someone with an axe to grind leaving the main bio seem pretty conflicting
her role in exposing the V2 rockets was overstated, and that her report came after the peenmunde raid rather than instigating it, and was something the war office already had several reports about. either way being an enemy spy in France with the fucking gestapo
torturing people to death for that sort of thing is hero enough in my books

This is a normal post Peenemunde was just one of many test sites the Nazis used.
The scientists that developed these dreadful, indiscriminate weapons of mass destruction were indeed not killed during raids, or even convicted as war criminals after the war. They were shipped out to the US where they became true American heroes setting up the appollo space programme.

And if you want to build your very own V1, here's the user manual. These things were incredibly advanced for their time.
