There are a few more.. soem off the top of my head: 1: Paolo's red one, ex-Mr Beutler and winner at HO two times ago... and 2: The silver-blue one that went from Mr Herrlin to Blue Nelson about 10 years ago.. I guess it is still hiding in Blue's father's hangar..

The red pick up is not a Beutler - it´s a Fischer. Search for Fischer on the forum.

Hi olstein,

Is this the silver Beutler that Blue Nelson has now?

Do you know if there are two red ones. If have seen pictures of Red Beutler's with different licence plates, but thought it was all the same car.

There is indeed two red ones in Switzerland... They used to belong to two brothers, but the later one - the one you pictured - (the very last VW-Beutler ever made - all Porsche components) have recently been sold. The one on the right is ex-Mr Beutler's personal car, recent winner in Hessisch and belongs to the one and only - Paolo - world authority on Beutlers.

It might very well be - I have not seen that picture before.

It was on the East Coast for a long time - ended up in Mr Herlin's collection. Was then an older restoration and all silver. In mid-90-ies traded against a Beeskow to Blue (too many details surrounding that deal)... Blue drove it cross country out to California, added blue scalloops on it and took it to a couple of shows... I am not sure who owns it and/or where it is hiding these days.

A couple of pictures from the early 2000s:

I know there is also the red Porsche 356B Beutler that is/was for sale recently, but that was not the one I showed in the pictures.

I have pictures of a red VW beutler with 4 different licence plates, but still think this is all the same car. (with sunroof, and white fog lights)

Well the red car is mine, and - as Splitpersonality said - it's only one! The number plate BE 2502 was the private one of Mr. Beutler himself, the number BE 824U was the garage plate of the carosserie Beutler back in the 70ies/80ies. The two different plates TI 7855 and TI 99102 belong both to me and were on the car in 2 different periods. I'm not James Bond, the number plate here in Switzerland is personal and not related to the car. So if you drive 100 cars over 50 years, all these cars are gonna have the same number.

I think that there are some further, not yet known cars, at least 2. Mine isn't a 1954, as reported, but a 1958 (like the yellow one - that's why they are so similar, except for the tail and the dashboard)  Montreux2009-1.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.

Hallo Paolo,

Thanks for joining this topic about the Beutler cars. As Oystein writes you are the world authority on Beutlers.

Can you confirm the production figure of 28 VW Beutlers made?

regards

Patrick

Not VW but it is Beutler related,

I find this ad today.

Seems like Beutler also make special cars based on the porsche 944. They call it the Porsche 944 SaCA (Safety Cabriolet)

Has anybody seen this before?
