German auto giant Volkswagen launched the final edition of its iconic "Beetle" vehicle from its Mexican factory in Puebla on Wednesday.

The car's original design - a rounded silhouette with seating for four or five, almost vertical windshield and the air-cooled engine in the rear - can be traced back to Austrian engineer Ferdinand Porsche, who was hired to fulfill Adolf Hitler's project for a "people's car" that would spread auto ownership the way the Ford Model T had in the U.S. Porsche designed the vehicle at the behest of Adolf Hitler but the Volkswagen auto didn't enter full production until after World War II.

Robust, easy to maintain and high-performance, it reached its apogee in the 1960s and 70s before its popularity waned and Volkswagen ceased European production in 1978.

While it has more similarities to a modern Golf, the retro-inspired design and the funky-looking interior was able to attract new and existing buyers of the Beetle. In 2012, the Beetle's design was made a bit sleeker.
