Get ready for a fascinating episode of Autoline After Hours. We’ll talk to a man who claims Hitler stole the idea for the Volkswagen Beetle from a Jewish engineer. Paul Schilperoord is the author of “The Extraordinary Life of Josef Ganz” and we’ll ask him about the facts behind this obscure bit of history. Of course we’ll have a few other items on our agenda including a discussion of electric cars: do they have a promising future or are they already a sales flop? Plus we’ll get into the intriguing blank sheet design of the Mazda CX-5, which John McElroy drove around Laguna Seca last week. Joining John in studio to discuss these burning topics and a whole lot more are Peter De Lorenzo the AutoExtremist and David Kiley from AOL Autos and the author of “Getting the Bugs Out.”
