Warren Brown writes for the Washington Post. Warren and I were at the 2012 Volkswagen full-line event where we got to drive all of Volkswagen’s cars. When Volkswagen found out it was Warren and his wife’s, Mary Anne, 42nd anniversary they brought out a prototype turbo 2012 Volkswagen Beetle that Warren could take home with him.

Warren and I talked about the changes to the Beetle, what we thought, how difficult it would be to redesign such an iconoclastic car.

Listen to Warren and I as we drive the backroads of Virginia on our way to see Mary Anne. By the time we got to Mary Ann the car was nowhere on her mind as Washington DC had just had an earthquake, the first earthquake Mary Anne had ever experienced.
