      Next generation Volkswagen Beetle coming next year

      3rd verse, same as the first. Not entirely, of course, but when the subject is the Volkswagen New Beetle, the looks of the car are largely a foregone conclusion. Just like the current New Beetle evokes the original Type 1 with its roundy-round fat-fenderedness, the next version, expected to go on sale in May 2011, will continue paying homage to the classic form. The outward differences will be a less-arched roofline that's more like the Ragster concept, and reportedly more surface detailing to break up the current car's vast expanses of featureless sheetmetal.

      VW are really screwing up with the charm of the Beetle, the old ones looked SO much better. These are just plain ugly.

      now that was the VW ragster concept and the 3rd gen beetle will only borrow a few design elements from this concept. for eg the roof line and the windscreen rake (not as steep as this though). for the rest of it, it'll be derivative of the current design.

      They could have made this a sibling of beetle rather than changing the old beetle.
