    I guess you meant "The man who designed the original beetle LOGO was paid $20", not the one who designed engine... Since this one was Ferdinand Porsche himself! ;)

    Although Franz Reimspiess did design the Volkswagen logo, he was the one to perfect the air-cooled opposed four-cylinder engine for the beetle, not Ferdinand Porsche. See here, here, and here. The wording was a little confusing on the infographic, though, so we've updated it a bit. Thanks for the comment!

    Stunning piece of design, have you considered printing and selling these bad boys? I'd pony up $25 for one to adorn my garage.

    Were you going to fix the $20 thing? Currently it appears that he was paid $20 to design the motor! It guess it should read "Franz Reimspiess, who perfected the design of the original Beetle engine, also designed the Volkswagen logo in which he was only paid $20 for his effort." Or something like that.

    I see the confusion, I just read your link but I really don't believe it's that accurate. I'm not sure he only made $20 for his design, he was a staff designer. What is interesting is that he was awarded only 100 Reichmarks for his VW logo design in a contest.

    I would LOVE to get this as a mountable piece of art! Any ideas?
