Who was behind Volkswagen Beetle?

► Who was behind Volkswagen Beetle? ◄

The idea for the Beetle came from Adolf Hitler, who wanted to mass-produce a car (the peoples car, the Volkswagen) which the average man in the street would be able buy.

A Stuttgart based design company, owned and run by Ferdinand Porsche, in April 1934 was given the important task of
designing this special car which was famously called 'Volkswagen Beetle'.
