History and The Volkswagen Beetle

Looks like there is some serious scholarly interest into the question of whether German Ferdinand Porsche or lesser-known Hungarian Josef Ganz is responsible for the design of the most popular car ever--the VW Beetle. Evidence seems to strongly point to Ganz's Maikäfer (or May Beetle) as the prototype from which the iconic Type 1 was created. Hopefully historians will get to the bottom of this and give credit where it's rightly due.
