The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally designed as a means of transportation for the German masses the same way Ford’s Model T was for America in the early 20th century. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the “Volks-wagen” or “People’s Car” had to meet four requirements laid out by the German Government; to be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of 60mph and feature an air-cooled rear engine. Porsche and his staff tried various combinations with the aerodynamic “beetle” shape and ultimately it was the designated Type 38, with split rear windows that became the Type 60 or “KdF-Wagen” translated as the “Strength through Joy Car.” After WWII, the British controlled Volkswagen Factory was rebuilt and the car slowly entered mass production. The Type 1’s unconventional appeal in the traditional large car market of the United States eventually brought in strong sales figures and resulted in Volkswagen producing more Beetle derivatives, such as the Type 2 Microbus, Karmann Ghia, the Thing and the Type 3 platform of air-cooled flat-4 engine vehicles. Eventually the sales trend of the imported VW’s caught the eye of American Auto Makers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change that the American Public had been smitten by the “Bug.” While the Beetle was produced in its original air-cooled form in Mexico until 2003, 1977 would see the last Beetle sedans roll off the assembly lines in Germany. For 1978 and 1979 the only German-built Beetle model available was the Super Beetle Convertible by Karmann. As German Beetle production would end in 1979, the last generation of Beetle’s are highly sought-after by collectors and enthusiasts around the globe, especially in original German specification.
