The Volksvagen Beetle has 21,529,464 units produced, a production that goes from 1939 to 2003. Ferdinad Porsche accepted the challenge that Adolf Hitler launches:
capability of transporting 5 people or 3 soldiers and a machine gun, consume 7 litres per 100 km, driving over 100km/h
The Porsche engineer developed the "people's machine" (Volkswagen), an economical and robust vehicle. Self-supporting frame, cantilever air cooled Boxer 4-cylinder engine and rear wheel drive. The Beetle will be the development basis for future Porsche cars.
Production began after the end of the Second World War, and over the years various structural and aesthetic changes have been made, which however do not distort the car, making it remain always clearly identifiable, above all due to its particular rounded shape.
Even today, seeing it drive by gives joy because of its forms, but those who have had the pleasure of owning one, will also remember it for its qualities of solidity, reliability and safety. In the various countries where it has spread, it is called in different ways: the Beetle in Italy; Beetle in the Anglo-Saxon countries; Kaafer in Germany; Fusca in Brazil.
