Next generation Volkswagen??
February 19, 2007
German magazine auto motor und sport has produced design sketches of it’s prediction for the next generation VW Beetle.
Autoblog have reproduced an image of the sketch, a three door which they liken to an Audi A3. See http://www.autoblog.com/2007/02/18/speculative-sketchiness-the-new-new-beetle/
I have noticed a revival of the old VW beetle and seen a few pink 70’s beetles driving around the streets.
Ironically the picture reveals a punchy shade of orange. An interesting but not well known piece of trivia is that Barbie sometimes drove an orange VW beetle.
This will not go down well with critics who are already unhappy about the evolving design of the VW, condemning the decision making executives at VW for pandering to the cutesy chic car market whose preference is for candy coloured bubble shaped jellybeans on wheels.
