    Share fascinating facts you know about cars!

    Please don't post facts about fictional cars, for example, the 200BX, and please don't make fictional facts about non-fictional cars like "Did you know the Tesla has an LS engine".

    Please politely correct people if they're wrong about facts or disobeying the rules and don't start flame wars.

    These rules are pretty easy to follow so please follow them!

    The original VW Beetle replacement idea was the VW EA266 project. It was meant to be a hatchback/minivan/sports car with a mid-engine layout, where the engine would be below the rear seats, allowing for two trunks:


    However, the project was cancelled when it became apparent that it would be too expensive to make and service, have problems with NVH and be a bit fumy.
