Volkswagen Beetle, 1938-2003

Maybe there's something in the motor oil in Wolfsburg, but VW sure does like making the same car for a really long time. The Beetle got its start in the mid-1930s, when Adolf Hitler decided Germany needed a small, basic car. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche (yes, that Porsche), the Beetle first rolled off the assembly line in 1938. About 65 years later, the last Beetle was made at VW's plant in Puebla, Mexico.
