The history of common folk owning cars is not very long. This 'weird' but efficient vehicle was a luxury only for the very rich, until the advent of mass-produced cars. These days, countries all over the world have popular affordable cars for the people. Although the original intentions of research and development vary, their common concepts are compactness, convenience and multi-functionality.


Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, the founder of the Porsche Car company, was a genius designer whose design ideas have influenced many today. He has designed the Beetle, the Elephant heavy tank destroyer, the Type82 Kübelwagen, the Type166 Schwimmwagen and Lohner-Porsche Mixed Hybrid, the world's first car powered by hub-mounted motors in the wheel. While Ferdinand Porsche was designing , Adolf Hitler was waging war across Europe and plunging the World into chaos. The fates of these two Austrians were intertwined in the 1930s, when Hitler made two promises to the German people after his election as head of the Third Reich: one was to have steak on dinner; the other was to have a car for every German family. The car had a very specific requirement, being able to carry 2 adults and 3 children at the same time, i.e. a standard German family, and travel at a speed of up to 100km/h, while selling for no more than 1000 Reichsmark.


In fact, during the whole war, none of this people's cars was sold to the people, they were all being requisitioned by the army and converted into military vehicles, the most famous of which is the Kübelwagen (Released in Nov, 2021, Product No. 11241) . We feel honored if you already own it in your RC collection. If not, this car could be a great start to realistic scale RC models. The post-war civilian version was the Beetle, which later became world-famous.
