The AWS Shopper was a light motor vehicle which was presented by the former Borgward dealer Walter Schätzle at the 1970 Hannover Fair.

From 1973, it was made at  the Automobilwerk Walter S chätzle in Berlin-Rudow. The AWS Shopper had the bottom plate, the chassis and the engine of Goggomobil T250. It had an air-cooled two-stroke two-cylinder engine that produced 13.6 hp and 22 Nm of torque. It was mated to a four-speed manual transmission which drove the rear wheels. The three-door body was self-supporting with a skeleton (Space Frame) made from square steel pipes. This was then plastic-coated. This was and expensive deep drawing presses but it saved the need for painting. It was also possible to assembly the vehicleusing only a hammer, drill and rivet gun. This also helped to keep production costs low.

The car weighed 415 kg  when empty and had a top speed of 65 km/h. It had two seats. It was only available in one colour was orange and black. Production was stopped in July 1974 because the manufacturer went bankrupt.
