With a name that translates as “people’s car,” Volkswagen debuted in the late 1930s to help make auto ownership more accessible to a higher number of German drivers. That said, the first Volkswagen, the legendary Beetle, was actually designed by someone who would become better known for expensive low-production models: Ferdinand Porsche. As for the Beetle, the same basic design brought impressive success to the company in the years after World War II. In fact, the Bug would remain in production in some markets up until 2003, with more than 21 million sold before all was said and done.

VW began exporting vehicles to the United States in 1955, and it started building them here in 1978. In between those years, it established its U.S. popularity with niche favorites like the “Microbus” van, the Karman Ghia sports car, and the Thing — a sort-of early bare-bones SUV/car mashup. Nowadays, the Volkswagen Group has grown into a major global automaker that owns not only the Volkswagen brand but Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley, Bugatti, and others.
