  • 0

SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - Volkswagen is putting the brakes on the production of its legendary beetle.  The company says the last beetle will be made in July of 2019.

Volkswagen will make a "final edition" series, with the base prize tag of more than $23,000 dollars.

The car entered mass production after world war II, debuting in North America in 1949.  The decision comes as the beetle is facing an uphill battle on the market.
