The Volkswagen Beetle—officially the Volkswagen Type 1, informally in German the Käfer (literally “beetle”), in parts of the English-speaking world the Bug, and known by many other nicknames in other languages—is a two-door, rear-engine economy car, intended for five passengers, that was manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003.
Lead engineer Ferdinand Porsche and his team took until 1938 to finalise the design.
The influence on Porsche’s design of other contemporary cars, such as the Tatra V570, and the work of Josef Ganz remains a subject of dispute.
The result was the first Volkswagen, and one of the first rear-engined cars since the Brass Era.
With 21,529,464 produced, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made. [WIKIPEDIA]
