    Spy Shots: 2012 Volkswagen (new new) Beetle caught undisguised
    1296149520

    Honestly Volkswagen? Why even bother with camo? If you're going to parade the 2012 Beetle out in the open – with it's chopped roofline and redesigned rump – is a little bit of paint-matching trim around the headlamps really worth the effort?

    New spy photos have turned up showing a standard-cab version of the Volkswagen Amarok... snagged testing on Germany's Nürburgring, of all places.

    Is the two-door, single-cab pickup truck a thing of the past? Sometimes it seems that way, and judging by the distinct lack of bench seats and long beds we see roaming the parking lots at the local Home Depot, most of us prefer an extra set of doors and a couple more seat belts in lieu of a lower price. Looking around the streets of small-town America, ...
