I think rear-engine VW Beetles are still being made in Mexico, although I have a feeling that they may have finally stopped making them.

Have you seen Francis Ford Coppola's "Tucker: The Man and His Dream"? There's a line in it that I often quote when I talk to people who are hyper-critical about manufacturers who put engines behind rear axles.

"The engine is in the back, where it ought to be."
