Volkswagen Cars
Volkswagen's 'Beetle' car grew through the 1930s with Ferdinand Porsche developing a number of rear-engined vehicles backed by Adolf Hitler's support. Beetle production only really started in 1945 and ended in Mexico in 1983 after more than 21million were built. Rear-engined vehicles were the VW sole product through Type 2 (Transporter) in 1950, Type 3 (1500 and 1600) in 1961, and the first VW 4-door in 1968 (411 and 412). VW purchased Auto Union (Audi) in 1964, and NSU in 1969, and used the expertise of those two to turn 1974 VW around; putting engine and drive at the opposite end, Vw created golf, Passat and Polo ranges.
