iBeetle expected early next year
Volkswagen has officially unveiled its latest model of the popular Beetle. The new car is expected to hit dealer showrooms in 2014 and is called the iBeetle. As you might guess from the name of the car, it's designed in conjunction with Apple and has robust connectivity with the iPhone.
The iBeetle will be offered in coupe or convertible forms and pricing is unannounced this time. Volkswagen promises that the car will come in color schemes that match the iPhone. That would seem to indicate lots of brushed aluminum and white or black exterior colors.
The big feature of the iBeetle is a special iPhone dock on the dash of the car that brings lots of connectivity with the iPhone 5 or other devices. The iPhone dock works in conjunction with a special Beetle app to bring the ability to stream music, listen to social network updates, and lots more from your iPhone using the car infotainment system.
