Vintage! Porsche-powered Karmann Ghia | Drive it!
Jochen Bader's Karmann Ghia RS is one of a kind. It's part Volkswagen, part
Porsche and a whole lot of fun. He took the sporty body of a 1970 Karmann
Ghia and pumped it full of Porsche technology. The result is a Ghia with an
output of 321 horsepower and a top speed
of more than 300 kilometers an hour.

A true classic - Karmann Ghia | Drive it!
Wulf Henrichs is a passionate collector of classic cars. He decided to take
a risky venture and bought an old classic over the internet for 17,000
euros without even taking a look at it. It's a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and
spent most of its life in the United States.

vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most
beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small
drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first
Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle
engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still,
when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough
to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's
close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this
classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this
stylish milestone of automotive history.
Karmann-Ghia anniversary 50 years 1955-2005
On the 14th of July 1955 the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was presented to the
public. Members of the media and business were invited to the Kasino in
Georgsmarienhütte, which is close to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück.
50 years on, Karmann Ghia friends around the world are invited to take part
in these jubilee celebrations at the historical location, invited by the
big Karmann Ghia clubs of Germany with the support of numerous sponsors and
helpers. Georgsmarienhütte is situated a few kilometres south of
Osnabrück in northern Germany.
This is a short private movie of me as participant - it is not the official
video off the anniversary.
1973 Karmann Ghia Driving Lesson
Be supportive guys, she's picked up driving this thing pretty quickly!
After about a week of working the various electrical bugs out of this Ghia
and tuning and tigthtening numerous components to spec, LaLaLauren311 was
ready to take her first drive. She is unable to drive a manual
transmission car (although she did pass motorcycle training on a
manual-shifted motorcycle) so she's received a quick lesson in how to
operate the car, and the rest went from there.
History: LaLaLauren311 has been crazy-wanting a Karmann Ghia for a while.
We've been searching high and low and not finding anything that fit our
needs of a decent running car at a super low cheap price. Then suddenly I
got a call one afternoon that a friend found a 1973 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia
outside of Walmart. The fellow that owned it didn't much like working on
it, and when it didn't start up one day he chose to rather offload it than
After acquiring the car, I towed it home behind my Nissan 350Z and very
quietly and secretly parked it in the driveway and set up my camcorder to
capture LaLaLauren311's reaction.
