Volkswagen has Adolf Hitler to thank for its start. In 1933 Hitler asked Ferdinand Porsche (yes, that Porsche) to discuss the idea of an affordable car that could carry five people. Prototypes appeared shortly and the KdF-Wagen was released in 1938. The KdF-Wagen would later become known as the Beetle and go on to sell in the millions.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Review

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Review

When VW introduced the “new” Beetle back in 1997 it instantly became an icon… for all the wrong reasons. Quickly branded a “chick car,” especially the convertible model, with its latest redesign the bubbly two-door has received more masculine styling but is it enough to attract male buyers or is it still estrogen on wheels?
2009 Volkswagen Eos

2009 Volkswagen Eos
