2012 Volkswagen Beetle

As we've reported, Volkswagen will be formally unveiling the 2013 Beetle convertible at the upcoming L.A. Auto Show. But if you can't wait until then, Vee Dub has released official photos of the new Beetle drop top. Unlike with previous versions, the new convertible will be available with any of the coupe's engines, including the 200-horsepower turbo gas, the 41 highway mpg turbodiesel (TDI) and the base inline five.
