Here's The Crazy 2019 Jetta That Volkswagen Is Taking To The Bonneville Salt Flats Here's The Crazy 2019 Jetta That Volkswagen Is Taking To The Bonneville Salt Flats

One of the most amusing things about land speed racing is that there seems to be records for everything. Now Volkswagen wants their very own record in Bonneville’s BGC/C class, so they’re bringing a brand new 2019 Jetta to the salt flats to make that happen.

Volkswagen Keeps Having To Be Reminded It Doesn't Own The Word "Beetle" Volkswagen Keeps Having To Be Reminded It Doesn't Own The Word "Beetle"

As I’ve made abundantly clear, I’m very fond of Volkswagen Beetles, especially the old air-cooled ones.

This Guy 'Fixed' His Volkswagen Scirocco By Making It A Mid-Engine VR6 This Guy 'Fixed' His Volkswagen Scirocco By Making It A Mid-Engine VR6

Ben Beacock’s 1981 Volkswagen Scirocco had one slight problem: its engine was toast. So, he swapped it for the beloved 24-valve VR6 engine, and fabricated a ton of custom parts to move the engine to the middle—yes, the middle—of the car. It’s perhaps the most complicated fix to a relatively simple problem, and I…

This Photo Of An Effigy Of A Volkswagen From Nazi Germany Reveals A Very Strange Story This Photo Of An Effigy Of A Volkswagen From Nazi Germany Reveals A Very Strange Story

Of course, I haven’t seen everything, and occasionally I’ll encounter a truly unexpected photo that…
