Top Stories

Volkswagen is saying goodbye to its iconic bug.

After about eight decades, the German automaker is stopping production of its Beetle model. The only remaining factory producing the car rolled out the final Beetle today.

It’s the end of an era for the historic vehicle which evolved from a World War II symbol to a beloved icon of the “flower power” movement. The last Beetle will be displayed at a Volkswagen museum in the city of Puebla.
