The third and final generation of the legendary Beetle will cease production in July 2019, capping a storied run that spanned eight decades. Volkswagen has actually planned two Final Edition models as a tribute. In the meantime, you can still get your lovable Bug in coupe or cabriolet format. How about the heritage-inspired Beetle Coast or the more rugged-looking Beetle Dune that sits on a beefed-up suspension? All units rely on a 174-horsepower turbocharged engine.
