2002 Volkswagen New Beetle

Volkswagen has kicked its retro-fad car into high gear with the introduction of a New Beetle Turbo S. Flying off the line from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a mere 7.4 seconds, the new Turbo S promises to appeal to a wider audience: guys, in other words.

A true lightning bug, the Turbo S has been clocked at 130 mph and features a speed-activated rear spoiler. That sounds like more than a mere nostalgia car. Technically, competitors will include its cousin, the Audi TT, its stablemates, the Golf GTI, and, in some circles, other retro-mobiles like the PT Cruiser, the Thunderbird and the Mini. But the newest Beetle's unique looks and stand-out performance make it a species apart.

The rest of the Beetle line continues to turn heads, however, and 2002 brings special color editions in Riviera Blue and Pastel Green; Snap Orange, Double Yellow, and Cyber Green come with special seats, trim, and wheel inserts. Very cool.
