… the 1 millionth VW (Volkswagen) Beetle was “born”, according to the Brockhaus Multimedia screen saver on my home computer. Since June 2002 21.5 million VW Beetle have been sold. Manufacturing of this car started in summer 1945.

Its successor was the VW Golf. The VW Beetle inspired designer to come up with the VW New Beetle manufactured in Mexico starting in 1998.
