July marked the end of an era for the Volkswagen Beetle, the small, quirky car that is easily one of the most important cars in automotive history.
The car, whose origins were in Nazi Germany, became a symbol of the 1960s counterculture and has been immortalized over and over in film.
Volkswagen has made three versions of the Beetle, selling more than 22.5 million of them over the years. Among passenger cars, the Beetle trails only the Volkswagen Golf and the Toyota Corolla in popularity.
But now it's gone, as Volkswagen shifts its attention toward electrified vehicles and beefing up its inventory of the sport utility vehicles and crossovers customers are buying.
