Volkswagen

Literally translated from the German as “People’s Car,” the original Volkswagen was designed by Ferdinand Porsche, and production was advocated by Adolf Hitler prior to World War II. It was intended that the German family could afford a car that would carry two adults and three children at a maximum of 62 miles per hour. Volkswagen was founded in 1937 by the German Labor Front.
