Endearing and Enduring
It seems as if the Volkswagen Beetle has been around forever — likely because it has been one of the longest running nameplates in automotive history.

Since this was the final year for the much-loved Bug, Volkswagen created a Final Edition, and we spent a few days with this special version to say our good-byes. Although it was nearly a tearful farewell, take heart. True icons never leave us. So as we take a look at this final version of the people’s car, let’s also take a fond look back at Beetles over the last 60 years.
