VW Beetle Lives!  Beetle Death Speculation Ends

VW's development chief Heinz Jakob Neusser says VW is  hatching another new Beetle.  Built on the award-winning seventh-generation Golf toolkit, it should emerge within three years.

VW's Mark Gillies adds news that  it's considering production of two concept Beetles shown in New York.  One is the denim-themed Beetle Convertible.

Gillies told the Autoist that the Golf SportWagen Alltrack goes on sale in 2016.  With an inch more ground clearance and all-wheel-drive, it represents VW's upcoming product portfolio that addresses the wishes of both its consumers and dealers.
