Since its introduction, the Volkswagen Beetle became known for its style, practicality, performance, and durability. For over 80 years, this legendary two-door set standards and broke barriers to become one of the most iconic models on the road. This legendary model embodied versatility and performance for driving enthusiasts worldwide with a style that still continues to turn heads today.

The History of The VW Beetle

The original Beetle was designed by Ferdinand Porsche, founder of Porsche, in Germany during the early 1930's. After its success in Europe, the Beetle made its way to America in the 1950's and became one of the most recognizable models in U.S. automotive history.

Volkswagen Beetle Historical Facts

During the 1960's, the Beetle's popularity skyrocketed after the debut of "The Love Bug." The Beetle became the best-selling foreign car of the decade and later surpassed the Ford Model-T as the best-selling car of all time. The Beetle's original American production ran from 1950 to 1979 before being discontinued for nearly 20 years.

In 1998, the Beetle returned with a new retro-modern look that sent waves through the automotive industry. With the return of this iconic model, Volkswagen quickly became a leading automaker with American buyers and introduced this icon to a new generation of drivers.

After another 14 years of success, the Beetle reintroduced itself once again in 2012-this time with a front-engine and front-wheel drive and a sleek and updated design. This current incarnation is larger and more innovative than its predecessors with features like a 6.3-inch touch screen infotainment system with smartphone integration, a premium Fender audio system, Bluetooth, LED daytime running headlights, navigation, parking sensors, and ambient interior lights.

In 2019, Volkswagen announced plans to discontinue the Beetle after nearly a century of production. While this is the end of an era, Long Island drivers still have the chance to get behind the wheel of their very own.
