Hitler stole idea for iconic Volkswagen Beetle from a Jewish engineer, historian claims
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2086663/Hitler-copied-idea-iconic-Volkswagen-Beetle-Jewish-engineer-historian-claims.html



Quote:
Three years before Hitler described 'his idea' to Mr Porsche in a Berlin hotel, Mr Ganz was driving a car he had designed called the Maikaefer, or May Bug.

The lightweight, low-riding vehicle looked very like the Beetle that was later developed by Mr Porsche, who is still considered the foremost car designer in German history.

Jewish inventor Mr Ganz had been exploring the idea for an affordable car since 1928 and made many drawings of a Beetle-like vehicle.

Mr Ganz's car was fitted with a tubular backbone chassis, a rear-mounted engine and independent suspension with swing axles, and it has a streamlined Beetle-like body

^Shocking - more Kach bs flung at Porsche - when will it end? What need is there within you to disparage the marque?

My older twin-brothers' '57 Chevy circa 1968. I have wonderful and terrifying memories of that 327 powered monster!

Not at all, I just find history and maybe even alternate histories interesting.

Same with the future.
