At Karmann in Osnabrück, the preparatory work for Type 14 begins in the spring of 1953. The Italian design studio Ghia is commissioned to design a beetle-based coupe. The end of 1953 presented, still somewhat rustic-looking prototype inspires the client and is also received in Wolfsburg benevolent: The series development of a 2 + 2-seater coupe is decided thing. The production of the Karmann Ghia starts in August 1955.

1957, two years after the coupe, comes the convertible type 14 on the market, technically largely identical to the coupe. Decisive changes are the numerous stiffenings of the body, especially in the floor area. Surprisingly, they increase the empty weight by only ten kilograms. The soft top is of high quality and sets standards in workmanship, materials and low noise. Unlike the Beetle Cabriolet, it completes almost entirely with the body line and gives the Type 14 a very elegant look.
