I've heard from a former German exchange student that we have an Americanized pronunciation. The way she said it was more like "FolksVahgen".

It's mostly because you don't read it as Volk-swag-en. You read it Volks-Wagen.
German **** yeah.

Which is why they steal them.

On another note, to think that Ferdinand Porsche designed not only the Volkswagen, but a 120 ton tank called the "Maus".

And the Beetle was Hitlers request for everyone to have a car that could get almost 30mpg that anyone could afford.

Seems like Mr.Porsche had a tiny penis..ever see all his projects? Many are way out there and ******* crazy.

That's DOCTOR Porsche.

And no kidding, though in hindsight the cars that bare his name work quite well, and Volkswagens are still around.

Hell, even his more scatter-brained ideas such as the Maus did indeed work; according to some accounts, the Maus V2 prototype held off a Soviet assault almost single-handedly before running out of gas/getting blown up (depending on the source).

I dont think the sources were ever accurate..I think one of the Maus broke on the way to the testing grounds,and they sabatoged it and blew it apart(it took several half tracks just to pull the turret off the wreck) One was never completed,and two others were built,one that had a hull with a mock turret,the other with a mock hull with a real turret.

The Pzkpfw E-100 was only completed to the hull,the rest of the E series that we know about,are basic ideas,and sketches.

The Germans had a good idea with the E-series,and should have done it much,much sooner than late 1944 when the idea came about.

In my opinion,the Maus,and other super heavy tank designs are wasteful and impracticable.

Not as crazy as the Ratte; they completed the turret to that behemoth and put it on a fixed mount to defend Tronheim, Norway...and never had the chance to USE it!
