Whether you love or hate the Volkswagen Golf, it would be hard to not see it as massively significant in the car world as a whole.
Whether you love or hate the Volkswagen Golf, it would be hard to not see it as massively significant in the car world as a whole. The company itself had been trying and failing for years to come up with a replacement for the Beetle which was dwindling in sales and this would make the company the global powerhouse it is today. So let's watch our posture, take the swing and land on the green. Oops, wrong Golf, not important.

Volkswagen had already been selling the Beetle for 20 years in the mid 50's when they started looking at expanding their range and replacing the aging Beetle as they knew sooner or later sales of the incredibly successful little bug would drop off. They began building a line of prototype vehicles all beginning with "EA" which stood for Entwicklungsauftrag, the German for development assignment.
