Designers for the E-Bugster are quite confident in their proposal to Volkswagen, and after positive feedback on the model, they feel that this design is what enthusiasts can expect to see as the third new Beetle variant.
“This is a serious proposal for a speedster Beetle and I am sure it will come for production,” says designer Mark Lichter, “we just need to find the business case.”
Highlights of the design start with the 65mm cut on the proportions for the car, and a wedge-style roofline. The model also draws heavy inspiration from Porsche design, witch can be seen in the multi-spoke alloy wheels and other elements. Litcher himself is the owner of a 964 Porsche 911 Speedster, and feels that ‘A Beetle Speedster is the perfect car for the US.’
Volkswagen remains quiet on the issue, but expect to hear more on this concept soon.
