Designing car renderings is already a pretty laborious endeavor in itself, but when the car you’re designing happens to be one of the most iconic of any kind in history, the standards are, shall we say, a little higher.

Independent designer, David Cordoso, knows all of this and yet didn’t shy away from designing a proposal for the next-generation Volkswagen Beetle, which VW is set to release sometime in the near future.

According to Cordoso, his Beetle design is a fully-electric, emissions-free vehicle that is in-line with the latest development plans of Volkswagen. As far as the design itself is concerned, it’s a fresh interpretation of its predecessor and something that we’ve actually taken a liking to. On the other hand, the car’s headlights are a little too small for our taste, which pretty much defeats the purpose of it being called a ’Beetle’.

That’s our two cents. What are yours?

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Shuttered for 30 years! He is either in hiding or he was dealing with some shady types and is dead. Something about his grin says do not trust me.

Really looks more sportier than the previous beetle, I think this will achieve success in the market because its look so appealing and also unique.

The new beetle looks more futuristic and cute.

Oh isn’t that the beetle project has already ended? So why making a remake? Are they up to something?
