You can make it a daily driver with its great gas mileage or take it to the car shows and hang out with some cool people. Either way you are sure to get a ton of looks in this classic, yet flashy well put together Beetle. The Volkswagen Beetle - officially the Volkswagen Type 1, informally in Germany the K�fer German, "beetle" and in parts of the English-speaking world the Bug - is a two-door, four passenger, rear-engine economy car manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen from 1938 until 2003. The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, was formulated by the leader of Nazi Germany who wanted a cheap, simple car to be mass-produced for his country's new road network. The government contracted Ferdinand Porsche in 1934 to design and build it. Porsche and his team took until 1938 to finalize the design. The influence on Porsche's design of other contemporary cars, such as the Tatra V570 and the work of Josef Ganz remains a subject of dispute. The result was one of the first rear-engine cars since the Brass Era. With 21,529,464 produced, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made. This car includes; AM/FM Radio, manual convertible top, vinyl interior, seat belts and radial tires.
