Volkswagen Beetle - the preferred mode of transport for the flower power generation - the Awesome World of Things

The Beetle is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW). The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, were formulated by Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany, wishing for a cheap, simple car to be mass-produced for the new road network of his country. He contracted Porsche to design and build it to his exacting standards. Ferdinand Porsche and his team took four years to finalise the design. This is one of the first rear-engined cars. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform, worldwide.
