The 21st Century Beetle Convertible will miss the 2012 sales season altogether and will actually be launch early next year, according to a report from Car & Driver.
Yes, we are likely looking at a Detroit debut but Los Angeles is still a possibility for 2012. Considering the production line is already set up, the show debut and maket launch will be much closer together.
The car will still be targeting young customers. Whatever the reveal date may be, the American market will see the same engine range as the coupe - 2.5-liter base model, 2.0-liter Turbo and even the diesel.
