Who has not heard of the Beetle that runs and runs and runs?
As early as 1945, mass production of the VW Beetle was commenced – the last one rolled off the line in 2003. The VW Beetle was produced over 20,000,000 times and had become a classic during its production period, enjoying a wide fan base right until today. In early 2014, more than 10 percent of all registered classic cars in Germany were “creepy crawlies”, making it beyond any doubt the most popular classic car of all times.
Over the decades, the beetle has undergone numerous changes, the most obvious concerned the shape of the rear window. The two-piece oval rear window (“split”) was replaced in 1953 by a larger one-piece oval window. In 1957 and then again in 1963, the rear window was enlarged again. The 1302 was presented in 1970, it marked the zenith of beetle development in Germany. Production at the Wolfsburg plant came to an end in 1974, but up until 1985, Mexico-built beetles were officially marketed by VW in Germany.
