2019 Beetle Convertible Final Edition

Final model year 2019 Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen was first produced in the late 1930s, which makes it one of the longest-running nameplates in the automotive industry. The thing is, the vehicle’s history in the U.S. isn’t nearly so extensive. You see, it didn’t arrive here until the 1950s, and even then it was an import sold in small quantities. It saw an enormous surge in the 1960s, but it was discontinued here in 1979. Not such a long run, right? Well, the heritage model continued production in Mexico until 2003, even if the New Beetle wasn’t introduced to us until 1998.
