      Doberman...was it a silver one? I saw a silver one on Frying Pan Rd off Rt28. It had something black covering the hood. It looked sweet. I almost made a U-turn to follow it to HQ but I was already late for work.

      There have been a couple of sightings - the one you mention + a red one (which I've also seen). FWIW, there are still so many NBs running around NoVa that it's a bit tough to distinguish the two at first glance...

      Astonishing proportions! Now that is what I call a perfect balance of front and rear overhangs-to-wheelbase ratio. In one swoop you corrected the most irritating aspect of FWD based chassis proportions: the goofy front over hang, you also corrected the rear overhang to the point that it now resembles the integrated proportions of the NB, a very good thing!

      This is what the "21st Century" Beetle might have turned out to be if VW had delayed it's release and synchronized the engineering with the forthcoming new generation "MQB" platform that will underpin the Golf MK7/Scirocco etc. I hear that this platform has considerably shorter overhangs and consequently a longer wheelbase, just like what you've rendered here in fact.

      Welldone Nuno Gti!

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought all new VWs are on some verstion of the MQB? The integration of this new platform started with the MKVI Jetta which is what the Beetle is based on. MKVII Golfs will be the next models to MQB.

      Hi Silverspeedbuggy, as far as I know, the MQB has not yet been released into the wild. The first example of this will be the next generation Audi A3 due around early 2012. I've just done a quick search to verify this and this is what Wikipedia has to say:

      Cars based on MQB are expected to range from superminis to large family cars, replacing the current generations of models. MQB will hence supersede the current PQ25, PQ35 and PQ46 platforms. The first model to be based on the MQB will be the 2012 Audi A3.[2]
      Here is some more info on VWs Master Plan involving MQBing many of it's future models, this article is from Autocar of 2007.

      This is exactly as I remember reading in several car mags over the last 5 years or so. I was actually expecting the NB to have been replaced by this "new" Beetle way back in 2005, I even read a post on one of the popular NB forums where a guy saw the "frozen" clay buck of this 2012 model back in.........2005! By now they would be talking about the MQB'd version around 2013 that would have finally synchronized the Bug with it's platform sharing siblings, no more being the kid left with the cast off clothes...



      I truly wished VW had followed that plan but hey, never mind. All is not lost as in the last couple of years I've been reading that the next Bug may either be MQB'd in 2016-17 or, in a suprisingly radical turn, might get a RWD, rear engined platform presumably based on a decontented 911 chassis in 2018 or so, this would be because Porsche is currently under immense pressure to share platforms to improve their economies of scale.

      Heres to hoping...........

      This beetle is insane! Must resist urge to buy car wife would kill me if i bought another lol.
      Funny thing is that i was telling my inlaws the new beetle would have been so sweet if they had made the nose longer and a shorter roof line like the original beetle which gave it that unique look.
      The vw gods have heard my cries!! shazam!!
      MkII Gti project coming soon I hope...

      Amazing.....

      May I ask: Are you able to use any color in your photoshop from the palette below?


      Maybe...
      ...HOT ORANGE?


      ...VIPERNGRUEN?


      ...BLACK BERRY?


      ...VENEZIENGRUEN?


      ...NIGHT BLUE?


      Detailed information about those colors can be found here:

      Some of the colors are hard to reproduce in photoshop but I have tried my best. Hope these are up to expectations. I think Venezian Green and Night Blue turned out the closest to the real colors. Enjoy!
