Very good chop. It reminds me of the previous-gen Beetle Dune Concept.

Simple yet subtle and I agreed with DoMiNo, it is in my own words - an "impressively-clean chop!" 4RD4TW's Beetle GTI is no fluke, instead the designer has managed to cohesively sort the details appropriately. Making his maiden entry into the competition with the high-performance beetle is his artistic confidence.

Initially I have planned to do a concept, but was not able to due to my work commitments. Perhaps next time. In the meantime, will be looking forward to more design entries!

kdavid94, your R variant looks realistic - a preview for the (should it be produced) high-end Beetle. Blackstripe has posted a worthy contender. It is going to be a tough time for me come the voting period.

Theo's as usual is going to be what the real one looks like and as usual wonderfully done. Canarycny's Baja is EXACTLY the kind of special editions VW should do with the Beetle every so often. An "Outbacked" Beetle would make a lot of sense.

Me too. I have anticipated the huge interests associated with the iconic hatchback coupe and decided to let other members to contribute and shine!

Indeed it is. There is so much potential with regards to this car, being an icon in its own right.

TheophilusChin-5 perfect execution

4RD4TW-3 not bad

AudiR8-3

kdavid94-4 well done

blackstripe-4 wheels are a nice touch

Culong81-4 would have been 5 but the nose is very mitsu-esqu and last gen gti wheels are a step back

kdavid94 - 5 - Hard to choose between Theo and yourself, but I prefer the R concept better than a cabriolet! :D
TheophilusChin - 4 - That oozes quality, but I just don't gel with convertibles real well :(
blackstripe - 4 - Love the retro style
Culong81 - 3 - Quality is simply fantastic, but not sure on the grille...
canarycny - 3 - Looks like a great concept!
AudiR8 - 2 - I like the concept

I have earlier mentioned that this contest would be one of the hardest choices made since I set foot here, and it is one EPIC contest. Here it is:

TheophilusChin - 4 - Excellent photochopping work. Sooner or later, we would be seeing the cabriolet version.

canarycny - 4 - I was impressed the moment I saw your work. It reminds me of the previous-gen dune buggy modifications/concepts. Quality is top-notch too!

4RD4TW - 4 - Excellent chop, given it was your maiden attempt. :)

AudiR8 - 2 - Nice idea.

kdavid94 - 5 - Perfection is the word to describe. VW wanted the current-gen Beetle to be a hardcore boy-racer car; a distinct departure from the softer, plusher version of the past. By conceptualizing the R variant, you have probably unlocked the potential for future performance variants. In addition, quality is at a premium.

blackstripe - 4 - Your work oozes retro-licious charm as a result of the slammed glasshouse and classic wheel caps/hubs together with excellent quality to boot.

Culong81 - 5 - Outstanding! Why? It was because you have done a considerable amount of modification to the car that it is away from the norms. The fascia looks "tricked" out (i.e. EVO-like radiatior grille cum bumper, LED fog light strips), the side window profile is a combination of beetle cum DS3 styling cues and match perfectly well with the previous-gen Golf wheels.

This would be one compatible ride for the Fast and Furious movie franchise car fleet. If it wasn't for the rating system, I would have given you a 6!

Whew! So there you have it. If you were disappointed by the outcome, don't be! It was not because of quality and idea issues, it was because the designers has given the best of their passion to create these works. Passion is key. Like the Japanese luxury car marque Lexus slogan "The Relentless Pursuit for Perfection."

Give yourself a pat on the shoulder! :)
