Exploring the World’s Cult Classic Cars

In the early 1970s, Volkswagen’s line-up wasn’t just long in the tooth - it was positively geriatric. So they turned to Italian stylist Giorgetto Giugiaro, who designed the company’s new range, including the razor-sharp Scirocco coupe.
When the Porsche 924 first appeared in the south of France in November 1975, it was greeted with much gnashing of teeth by fans of the marque. But the water cooled, entry-level 924 sold a whopping 150,000 over 12 years and developed into a serious, Porsche-engined, sports car.
