On the new 2011 Volkswagen Beetle?

Image

My dad used to have one, I can't remember exactly which year (late 90s), but it was the gayest looking thing on the street. With the lack of a fully rounded back like its predecessors, I like the new look. I never heard a complaint about the driving in the car and I dont remember it ever breaking down. Also, it looks like this one has more trunk space which was one reason my dad replaced his with a Honda Element.

btw, I know there are ones that have a little spoiler on the back but I couldn't find any of those pics.

Okay what the new back reminds me of is the back of a Porsche Cayman (http://www.carsuk.net/wp-content/galler ... 2009-1.jpg)

That kind of sloping thing. The Cayman is a sick car and I think that new beetle is definitely a step up from the previous. Still a poop car though overall.

I would actually drive a Cayman, though.
