July — Only one German out of 50 owned a car. Josef Ganz developed the Standard Superior going as far as advertising it as the "German Volkswagen". Ferdinand Porsche , a well-known designer for high-end vehicles and race cars, had been trying for years to get a manufacturer interested in a small car suitable for a family. He built a car named the "Volksauto" from the ground up in , using many popular ideas and several of his own, putting together a car with an air-cooled rear engine , torsion bar suspension , and a "beetle" shape, the front hood rounded for better aerodynamics necessary as it had a small engine. He wanted all German citizens to have access to cars. Thus, Hitler chose to sponsor an all-new, state-owned factory using Ferdinand Porsche's design with some of Hitler's design constraints, including an air-cooled engine so nothing could freeze.
