The Volkswagen Beetle (officially the Volkswagen Type 1) is a classic car that needs no introduction. With over 21 million units produced and sold globally from 1938 to 2003, the Beetle was extremely popular in the US and Europe during the 1950s and 1960s. However, with increasing competition and demands for better safety and emissions, the Beetle's sales declined in the early 1970s.
Despite its outdated design, the Beetle still has a large enthusiast market.
