Volkswagen Beetle
The VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE – officially the VOLKSWAGEN TYPE 1, informally in Germany the KäFER (German, "beetle") and in parts of the English-speaking world the BUG – is a two-door, four passenger, rear-engine economy car manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, was formulated by the leader of Nazi Germany , Adolf Hitler , who wanted a cheap, simple car to be mass-produced for his country's new road network . Hitler contracted Ferdinand Porsche in 1934 to design and build it. 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 one of the first rear-engined cars since the Brass Era
