There's this preconception about VW Beetles here, at least the New Beetles introduced to the market in 1998, that they're just for women. Maybe it is, maybe people are just stupid to think so, but I think the 2012 model shatters that preconception.
I love how they redesigned and refined this classic into what seems to be a new classic, added some sharpened edges suggesting a more masculine, more sports car culture side of the Beetle. It's official, I want one.
Is it me, or is the way VW updates their designs sort of reminiscent of the redesign approach Apple has on their product line... afterall, there was this rumor going around about the VW+Apple-powered iCar.
