Update on the Retro Beetle Front

I did some more searching on the possibility of a new Retro form-factor Beetle and found this story.

The US-market retro hatch is predicted to fit into the $10,000-$14,000 price bracket: it will also come to Europe, priced to rival the likes of the Fiat 500, new-generation Ford Ka, Peugeot 107/Citroen C1 and suchlike. Though equipment is said not to include power steering – the car will be small and light enough for this not to be necessary – it will be fitted with all necessary modern safety features such as ABS, stability control, airbags and so on.

There’s no word yet on a name for this car – which really does seem to be in the spirit of the Volkswagen brand-name – but previous reports have suggested Lupa.

I’m keeping my eyes peeled for more info on this. This may be the car I was waiting for!
