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.

Stars arrive in New Beetles @ Bee-movie première

WESTWOOD, Calif. --- On Sunday, October 28, 2007, a swarm of cast members and filmmakers arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of “Bee Movie” in Volkswagen “Bee-tles.” Volkswagen of America, Inc. created ten special New Beetle Convertibles for the premiere.

Each VW Beetle was wrapped in black and yellow stripes with antennas to resemble bumble bees, and created buzz as each star arrived in style.

A-list talent including Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Seinfeld, Renée Zellweger, Patrick Warburton, Ray Liotta, Rip Torn, producer Christina Steinberg, writer Spike Feresten and directors Steve Hickner and Simon J. Smith each arrived at the yellow carpet in a VW Beetle and were dressed in yellow and black clothing to match.


Hollywood has been buzzing about Jerry Seinfeld’s new comedy “Bee Movie,” the first motion picture script written by Seinfeld. This animated film tells the story of Barry (Jerry Seinfeld), a bee who wants more out of life than the lone career that awaits him…a job making honey.

Barry's life is saved by Vanessa (Renee Zellweger), a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue the human race for stealing the bees’ precious honey.

Other stars at the premiere included Nicolette Sheridan, Jon Cryer, Jane Leeves, Blair Underwood, Mimi Rogers, Jeri Ryan and car-enthusiast Jay Leno, who eagerly checked out the Beetles. “Bee Movie” will be released in theatres November 2, 2007.

 Retro Event 2007

Pt cruiser meets new beetle meets mini2

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Source ; http://www.i-publish.nl/retro/

Hallo,

Een tijdje stil, zoals elk jaar in verband met 1 x per jaar RetroEvent.

De locatie is Zuid-Limburg

De ontmoetingsplek is bekend, Chrysler-dealer All American Cars in Schinnen, de route ligt klaar en met de ijskoude eindbestemming (idd Snowworld Landgraaf) worden de laatste afspraken gemaakt.


Waarschijnlijk wordt de datum: zaterdag 27 oktober, een zaterdag vanwege de openstelling van de Chrysler-dealer.

De Retro-site is online, op dit moment is alleen het forum toegankelijk en inschrijving via de Retro-site zal binnenkort mogelijk zijn.

Overigens heeft Team Cruisin.nl het volgende besloten: Ooit (2005) is het ideetje "PT Cruiser meets New Beetle and New Mini` vanuit De PT Cruiserclub ontstaan. Dit jaar is de 3e editie en daarmee wil Cruisin.nl onder het motto `3x is scheepsrecht` deze reeks afsluiten.

Dus als jullie nog een RetroEvent tussen PT-NB-NM willen meemaken, meld je dan straks aan voor dit unieke evenement in Zuid-Limburgs landschap.

Tot dan, tot Retro

Ed



De ontmoetings- en begroetingsplek:

Op de Retro-dag in oktober zijn de deuren van zijn pand tijdens de meet & greet wagenwijd geopend en verwelkomen ze alle Retro deelnemers op koffie,thee,fris en Limburgsche vlaai.

New Beetle Bio

New Beetle BioImage Hosted by ImageShack.us

Volkswagen gelooft in de toekomst van biobrandstoffen van de tweede generatie, die gewonnen worden uit het restafval van planten. De huidige biobrandstoffen worden gewonnen uit de eetbare delen van een plant en kunnen dus bij een grote vraag een gevaar vormen voor de voedselvoorziening. De biobrandstoffen waar VW in wil investeren, zijn afkomstig van het restafval van voedselproducerende planten, zodat ze veel minder bedreigend zijn voor onze voorraad eten. De brandstof die uit plantenresten wordt gewonnen, heet SunFuel. Die komt spontaan tot ontbranding in een licht aangepaste dieselmotor, maar stoot echter veel minder schadelijke stoffen uit. Zo ligt de NOx-uitstoot dertig procent lager en is de CO2-uitstoot liefst procent teruggedrongen.
