Der Käfer

Ferdinand Porsche und die Entwicklung des Volkswagens

Über zwanzig Jahre Recherche, unter anderem in den sehr frühen Archiven von Volkswagen und Porsche, eine Vielzahl von bislang unveröffentlichten Fotos und Entwicklungsplänen sowie die Kompetenz eines der renommiertesten internationalen Motor-Journalisten und ausgewiesenen Käfer-Kenners verdichten sich in "Der Käfer" zu einer faszinierenden Auto-Biografie. Zahlreiche Bücher haben bislang den Werdegang des Käfers beleuchtet, doch alle streifen nur sehr vage seine Entwicklungsgeschichte. Autor Chris Barber konzentriert sich hingegen exakt auf diese Epoche des Kultautos aus Wolfsburg. Er geht noch einmal siebzig Jahre zurück und begleitet den genialen Autoentwickler Ferdinand Porsche und seine Mannschaft auf ihrer Mission, ein Fahrzeug zu bauen, das den Automobil-Markt revolutionieren sollte. Der Volkswagen sollte einfach zu bedienen sein, er sollte einer fünfköpfigen Familie ausreichend Platz bieten, er sollte robust sowie in Großserie zu produzieren sein und: Er sollte extrem preiswert sein. Ferdinand Porsche gelang dieses Kunststück in einem politisch diffusen und gefährlichen Umfeld. Chris Barbers souveränem Blick ist es zu verdanken, dass aus der Beschreibung des technischen Bravourstückes keine blinde Laudatio auf den Führerstaat Deutschland wird. Vielmehr schafft er es, die einzigartige Entwicklungsgeschichte des Käfers ohne Pathos in die herrschenden Zeitläufte einzuordnen. Übersetzt wurde dieses künftige Standardwerk über die Geburt des Volkswagens von Deutschlands wohl kompetentesten Käfer-Experten: Dr. Bernd Wiersch, der schon seine Promotion über den Käfer verfasste, leitete über viele Jahrzehnte das Wolfsburger "Volkswagen Museum"

VW Air-Cooled Engines

How to Increase Power and Performance

The air-cooled four-cylinder VW engine has inhabited iconic cars, such as the Beetle and the Bus, and many other popular Volkswagen vehicles over the years. In stock form, these rather simple engines only produce 29 to 80 hp. Barely adequate for a street car, this level of horsepower falls woefully short for high-performance applications. Fortunately, these engines can be easily modified to produce 300 to 400 hp for the street and much more for extreme high-performance and racing applications. In VW Air-Cooled Engines: How to Increase Power and Performance, author Dan Burrill explains how to upgrade and modify these spritely 1,100- to 2,300-cc engines into powerful high-performance engines. Modifying these engines to produce 500 to 600 or more horsepower was once thought inconceivable. Now it is within your reach with the information to build such engines contained in this book. The author explains the installation of a wet or dry sump engine so high horsepower can be attained. Selecting the best high performance parts with the best design is covered in detail. To handle high-RPM and high-performance service, the pushrods, rocker arms, and valvesprings must be upgraded and all the relevant options are discussed. Assembling and installing a long-stroke engine package for superior performance is also examined. In addition, a special section on supercharging, turbo charging, and nitrous is also included. VW Beetles and Buses have never been more popular. Whether you?re an enthusiast looking to build a mildly modified engine for improved performance or a competitive racer building an engine to win races, this book is a welcome addition to your shop and performance library.

Aufbauend auf der technischen Basis des unverwüstlichen VW Käfer kam 1955 der erste Karmann-Ghia auf den Markt - und fuhr sich mit seiner attraktiven, sportlich-eleganten Karosserie direkt in die Herzen des Publikums. Ob als Coupé oder Cabriolet, er blieb fast 20 Jahre fester Bestandteil der Modellpalette und musste zum Leidwesen vieler Liebhaber dieses Autos schliesslich abtreten, als die Wolfsburger den revolutionären Wandel zum Golf vollzogen. Dieses neue Buch widmet sich detailliert der ungewöhnlichen Karmann-Ghia Story und geht sowohl auf den klassischen Typ 14 wie auch den von 1961-69 produzierten Typ 34 ein, der auf den Technikkomponenten des größeren VW 1500 fusste und niemals serienmässig als Cabriolet erhältlich war. Heute werden alle Karmann-Ghia Modelle als Liebhaberfahrzeuge hoch geschätzt und in restauriertem Zustand zu stattlichen Preisen gehandelt. Das Buch ist umfangreich mit historischem und aktuellem Bildmaterial versehen und wird abgerundet durch eine Kaufberatung sowie einen ausführlichen Datenteil.
