Today I saw this. It's confusing to me, changing something that has been selling so well. One thing I have heard is that VW is trying to make the Beetle more of a muscle car, instead of a "chick's" car. I've also seen a version with wider back fenders and horizontal vents coming up to the side panel. It actually looks "mean" to me, as though the car is angry. I'm sure glad I was able to have one that looks cute.
