The Beetle

One of the 20th Century's truly great automobiles, the Volkswagen 'Beetle' transcended its origins as the German 'people's car', going on to become an all-time best-seller and cult classic. Originally conceived by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, the Volkswagen inspired unusual loyalty and enthusiasm based on its practicality, reliability, adaptability and affordability.

The Volkswagen's layout was the essence of practicality. The platform backbone frame was simple to build, and its rear mounted engine left the entire volume between the wheels free of obstructions and mated directly to the transaxle, eliminating the driveshaft. Porsche's favored trailing arm independent front suspension with transverse torsion bar springs imposed little upon the internal volume and the swing axle rear suspension coped with the typically rough roads of the day. An air cooled engine eliminated the whole water cooling system of pumps, pipes, hoses and radiators as well as eliminating the risk of freezing in cold northern winters.

It was a remarkably well thought out concept, meeting a number of difficult challenges and it proved, in terms of its impact on automobile design and acceptance, comparable to Henry Ford's Model T.

Visual changes during the model's long run were subtle, but perhaps the purest expression of the Beetle's design was the elegant 'Oval Window' produced between 1953-1957.
