2013 Beetle Convertible Press Release - LA Auto Show
Los Angeles, Calif. - The latest Beetle has been an instant success for
Volkswagen since it went on sale in September 2011 as a 2012 model. And
that success will continue with the introduction of the Beetle Convertible,
the sportiest and most dynamic version of the iconic softtop seen so far.
Ever since the type 15 Convertible from 1949, the Beetle has been one of
the most popular open-top cars built. More than 330,000 examples of the
first Beetle Convertible were manufactured over a 32-year span, while
another 234,619 New Beetle Convertibles were produced in an eight-year
The New Beetle Convertible was not a straight copy of the original, but a
reinterpretation and development of it. And that's the case with the
third-generation Beetle Convertible. Klaus Bischoff, Head Designer,
Volkswagen Brand says: "Retro is not our thing: we are always looking
forward. Volkswagen has reinterpreted the Beetle Convertible's timeless
design with a sportier and more dynamic silhouette, just as it did with the
Beetle Coupe. The car is substantially wider, has a longer hood, and has a
more upright windshield that sits further back than before. The standard
rear spoiler reinforces the car's sporty look."

Replacing the previous Volkswagen Beetle with its cute and bubbly shape,
the new model introduced in 2012 is considerably more gender-neutral.
Though getting over the car's modern era stereotype will take more than a
lower and wider stance.
