There is a tendens showing that has me a little worried on the one site, but gives new design impulses on the other.
There are some car models that have been “Redesigned” to live of the succes off there predecessors.
One of them is of course the:
The 1963 Mini Cooper.
The 2007 Mini Cooper
Another big one is the:
1955 Volkswagen Beetle
Next generation VW Beetle
The new Volkswagen Beetle
And now there is yet another Revival…
The Fiat 500
One of the early Fiat 500 models
The new Fiat 500 Models
Fiat 500 Luigi from the Movie “Cars”
I am sure there will be more to follow…
Some good, some bad, some highly overpriced, some ugly, but they all give credit to the originele design idea that made these cars so successfull.
