Alright, well this is my first post on the site. I've always liked baja bugs (sadly I do not own one. it is hard to find a good deal on one when your in college), But that's a different story.

But I've wondered if anyone has given any thoughts on using the new 2012-2013 redesigned bug in a baja project. I know there are a few people doing it with the 2000's design for baja projects now. I understand that the new models about 20k and that's probably more then anyone that is going to baja it wants to pay before having to buy parts. I just thought of another problem that might plague this idea. Probably not many companies that design parts for the model yet.

But I was wanting some more experienced people with baja bugs to voice there ideas/opinions on this concept.

Part of the reason early on in the baja world that Vw bugs were used is not only were they everywhere but also in stock form they would go just about anywhere. The simplistic design of the suepention was an easy platform to build from. With the motor in the rear where you need weight and being air cooled makes it a very simple design.
The thought of useing a new bug to built a baja doesnt interest me but it can be done. Keep in mind that can be said for just about any car. if you are willing to through a ton of money at it. I have seen camaro's that were built for offroading. Some thing to think about.

when the new version of the vw beetle was reintroduced in the late 90's I saw this picture of a concept car. I was real excited about the possible release of a baja version of the new beetle. It never happened. to bad.... it looked cool.
