Rumours New Beetle 2 for 2010-2012

New Beetle 2 ???

(only rumours)

Stuttgart - Volkswagen is planning the next generation of the New Beetle including a Roadster version in 2012 despite recent reports that it is planning to end production of the model, Germany's auto-motor-sport magazine reports.

The New Beetle, a retro-style version of the original Beetle "people's car" that was last produced in Germany in 1978, has been criticised as too expensive and lacking appeal .

A Roadster version of the New Beetle would replace the closed Beetle version and convertible in 2012, the magazine reports quoting company sources. A Volkswagen spokesman however described the report as "speculation". The new model is based on the two-seater "Ragster" concept VW presented at the Detroit Motor Show in 2005, displaying a lowered roofline, 19-inch wheels and a canvas top that can be lowered at the press of a button, auto-motor-sport said. The Roadster would be powered by a 3.2-litre V6 engine with an output of 206 kW/280 hp. It would be fitted with start-stop automatic and brake-regeneration technology to conserve fuel, according to the report.

New Beetle Parade Orlando

VOLKSWAGEN’S TRIPLE WHITE BEETLES ESCORT THE FAMOUS FACES OF MARILYN MONROE, LUCY RICARDO AND OTHERS DURING SPHERION ORLANDO CITRUS PARADEORLANDO, FLA. -

source ; www.media.vw.com

 The road is the new “Red Carpet,” at least this time around for eight Volkswagen Triple White Beetle (TWB) convertibles, which will grace the parade trail at this year’s popular Spherion Orlando Citrus Parade.

This is Volkswagen’s second year participating in the parade, which will air live on December 29, 2007 at 11:00a.m. EST on ABC. Volkswagen Beetles will be escorting popular characters of old and new, including Lucy Ricardo, Marilyn Monroe, Dora the Explorer, Olive Oyl and Popeye and Winnie and Woody Woodpecker. Returning co-hosts, Chris Harrison, of “The Bachelor” and Jane Robolot, of WYFF in Greenville S.C., will provide play-by-play commentary of the event.

Volkswagen’s TWB convertibles are a special edition model that was inspired by the original 1976 model. With Campanella White exterior and white interior showcasing the New Beetle convertible logos embossed in the head restraints, the 3,000 special editions in circulation makes this car a perfect fit for this iconic event.

 This Orlando grown parade has become a staple nationally and internationally, drawing in crowds of nearly 85,000 people, reaching millions of viewers via its 150 markets and internationally-syndicated broadcasts, which are expected to air in Canada and the UK.

Distinguished by floats made from over 100,000 pieces of citrus, the parade is recognized as one of the nation’s largest sports-affiliated parades. This year’s parade theme "Living the Good Life," will be a unique experience for family and a beacon of community spirit.
