Transformers: Cars to Autobots Infographic

Carinsurance.org has created an infographic which illustrates the cars behind the Autobots. I didn’t watch Transformers much as a kid (I preferred the likes of Thundercats and Masters of the Universe), but J tells me that it was one of his favorite cartoon shows while growing up…and had the toys to prove it!

He probably could have authored this infographic himself, but I know that he — and other fans of the original show from the eighties — would still get a kick out of it. Enjoy!

I wonder if a Decepticon version is in works…?

    As far as I know, there’s no such thing as a 1994 Beetle- at least not like the New Beetle they pictured. The first model year for the New Beetle was 1998! In the original series it was an old Beetle. In the new movies it’s actually a Camaro.

    • I just noticed that only the third part of the image was showing (for some reason the first two weren’t displaying)…sorry! I have adjusted the image so that it is one long image.

      I think you were looking at Goldbug, not the original Bumblebee when you were referring to the 1994 Beetle. Goldbug is the newer, stronger, reconstructed form of Bumblebee.

      Sorry about the confusion. :-/

        I’m still confused!

        Tthe infographic says “1994 VW Beetle” and pictures a New Beetle, but there’s no such thing. There are the old, classic Beetles and then in 1998 VW introduced the New Beetle. So there was no New Beetle in 1994.

        • Hi Courtney,

          I got this from Wikipedia:

          In 1994, Volkswagen unveiled the J Mays-designed Concept One, a “retro”-themed concept car with a resemblance to the original Beetle, based on the platform of the Polo. Due to a positive response to the concept, a production version was developed as the New Beetle, based on the Golf’s larger platform.

          Hope that clears things up!
