Question Who designed the Volkswagen Beetle?
- Mr. Volvo
- Mr. Porsche

- Mr. Audi
t was Ferdinand Porsche who designed the “people’s car,” the legendary VW Beetle, in 1934. When Hitler asked the German automobile industry to develop a “suitable small car”, Porsche submitted the best design — and was awarded the contract. Adolf Hitler was so taken with the engineer he declared him “brilliant.” Without Ferdinand Porsche, neither automotive giant Volkswagen nor luxury marque Porsche would exist today. With 21,529,464 produced, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made.
