Volkswagen literally means “a car for the people,” and its iconic Beetle is nothing if not precisely that. From Herbie the Love Bug and Bumblebee the Autobot to hippies and the New Beetle (complete with flower vase), the Punch Buggy has been a cultural touchstone, epitomizing pint-sized compacts with outsized can-do spirit.
The earliest Beetles were manufactured in 1938 as air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive economy cars based on Ferdinand Porsche’s Type 12 “Auto für Jedermann,” or “car for everyone.” Discontinued in 2003, they were reintroduced in 1997 as the New Beetle with a reinvigorated design. More recently, the Beetle was again redesigned with more aggressive lines and turbo performance options to match.
Driving a Beetle is a statement of individuality. Some owners prefer the Beetle for its retro design cues, while others appreciate its fuel economy. Still others simply appreciate the Beetle’s inherent quirkiness. But whether it’s for looks, economics, or general vibe, your Beetle deserves to look its best.
