Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle, also known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003 with over 21 million manufactured in its air-cooled, rear-engined, rear wheel drive configuration. Its platform ultimately gave rise to successful variants, including the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and the Volkswagen Type 2 van.

In the 1950s, it was more comfortable and powerful than most European small cars, having been designed for sustained high speed on the Autobahn, and ultimately became the longest-running and most-produced automobile of a single design. It remained a top seller in the US, even as rear-wheel drive conventional subcompacts were refined, and eventually replaced by front-wheel drive models — owing much of its success to high build quality and innovative advertising.
