VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE In April 1934, Adolf Hitler gave the order to Ferdinand Porsche to develop a Volkswagen (literally, "people's car" in German, pronounced [ˈfɔlksvaːɡən]).[16] The epithet Volks- literally, "people's-" had been applied to other Nazi-sponsored consumer goods such as the Volksempfänger ("people's radio"). In May 1934, at a meeting at Berlin’s Kaiserhof Hotel, Chancellor Hitler insisted on a basic vehicle that could transport two adults and three children at 100 km/h (62 mph) while not using more than 7 litres of fuel per 100 km (32 mpg US/39 mpg UK). The engine had to be powerful for sustained cruising on Germany’s new Autobahnen. Everything had to be designed to ensure parts could be quickly and inexpensively exchanged. The engine had to be air-cooled because, as Hitler explained, not every country doctor had his own garage (ethylene glycol antifreeze was only just beginning to be used in high-performance liquid-cooled aircraft engines. In general, radiators filled with water would freeze unless the vehicle was kept in a heated building overnight or drained and refilled each morning). The "People's Car" would be available to citizens of Nazi Germany through a savings scheme, or Sparkarte (savings booklet), at 990 Reichsmark, about the price of a small motorcycle. (The average weekly income was then around 32RM. 1979 was the last year for the famous Volkswagen Beetle convertible, It is powered by a 4-cylinder engine that displaces 1585cc and produces 48 horsepower. It rides on a wheelbase that measures 88-inches and there is a four-speed manual gearbox. The Beetle, officially known as the Type 1 Sedan, evolved from the pre-war KdF-Wagen, whose name is derived from the phrase 'Kraft durch Freude', which means 'Strength through Joy'. It was meant as a 'people's car', the Type 1 was created from ongoing experiments of Project 12 at the Porsche facility. The engineers gave the car a revolutionary rear-mounted motor with lightweight aluminum and magnesium castings. The design went through countless revisions, with no fewer than 30 prototypes built by 1935.
