The cloth seats are weatherproof and there are drains throughout to get rid of rainwater, including the closed trunk area. Others, like this buggy, are not currently on the production track. Part of the charm and wide appeal of the original air-cooled, rear-engined Bug was its status as a versatile little machine, easy to work on and modify. Buggy tries to recapture that hippie spirit, inviting owners to convert it to a 2+2 or add another electric motor to the front axle to give it four-wheel drive. Inside, as currently configured, there are two seats up front and a raised, rubber-lined shelf behind the seats for cargo storage. It has a single-speed gearbox.

I also spent some time in a classic bright red buggy with a four-speed manual transmission and gas engine that might have been a touch carbureted. The Buggy has an estimated output of 201 horsepower from its rear-mounted electric motor, fed juice by a 62-kWh lithium-ion battery pack lining the floor between the wheels. That raises the possibility of cars becoming dull appliances available in a variety of sizes but lacking in spirit or a sense of fun.

. A production version matching these specs could top out at 99 mph. But the Buggy is uniquely positioned for service as a halo car. Even the brake and accelerator pedals continue this stripped-down design story.

They had a Beetle chassis, four-cylinder boxer engine in the rear, and innovative fiberglass bodies of every description. Buggy allows for the upper body to be detached from the chassis, which was done on purpose to allow third-party manufacturers to make their own kits for the car, such as Bruce Meyers did with the Beetle in creating the original Manx.
