Cougar town

The more mature look includes a slimming out of the Beetle's baby-fat bubble butt, as if it's just completed an entire P90X session. It looks like a cougar-esque hippie Beetle had a love child with a strapping young Porsche -- very Demi and Ashton (the early years). In my opinion, it works. As with the youth of today, the new Beetle is much more gender-neutral (Martha Stewart is so out, while Mr. Kate is totally tomorrow).Ian Merritt/ photo
