But I've only had my current car for five years! I've got at least five to go!

I think by the time the moment arrives, I will finally have moved out of my Volkswagen phase. Next car will be bigger/taller...maybe even a truck. OR run on electricity. I'm not sure yet.

They took all the character right out of the car, IMHO.

I think it kind-of looks like a Duplo/preschooler's toy version of a Porsche. I *do* however want the new VW Bully, which will probably end up looking completely different when it finally comes out in late 2013.

Agreed. I'd rather own a classic 50s or 60s variety Beetle.

This car looks PT Cruiser-ish, and that is NOT a good thing.

It's not as bad as I thought it would be. The lines actually better reflect the classic Beetle than the 'New Beetle' did.

I've owned both...my first two cars were '74 Super Beetles (actually I've owned nine VW's total), and I had a 2000 New Beetle GLX for several years, which was my favorite car I've ever owned. I just loved that thing. I've moved on to a small SUV (Nissan Rogue), which has been wonderful...almost ridiculously reliable.

Still, I like the looks of the new one and look forward to sitting in one, maybe even driving it. I'd like to add a coupe to my garage for the occasional fun vehicle.

I'm also interested in the Fiat 500, though, which I sat in at the Minneapolis Auto Show this year.

One rumor for the overhaul in design is that VW wanted to target the male consumer. I guess I can see how the current model isn't quite "masculine".

Umm...was that first photo intended to be of the new design? Because it's not.

Here's an article with photos and VW's press release. (vwvortex.com)

I googled 2012 Beetle and that was one of the first images that popped up (I'm guessing what I posted was a concept).

Either way, both models are certainly less feminine-looking

See, now I'm over being upset at Kim's character for the stupid stuff she does. I am now rightfully putting the blame on the writers. It seems like there has to be different writers for the Kim storylines because they are SO weak it's not even funny.
