What we know as the second-generation VW Jetta has been in continuous production in China since 1991 and, because they also sell newer Volkswagens there, they've constantly upgraded it to match the corporate image. Now it's just ridiculous.

Despite molding a pair of headlights and a grille similar to the latest Jetta, the flat-sided old vee-dub looks hilarious. It just doesn't work. The best part, though, is the Phaeton-esque taillights. Remember, this isn't a clone. This is Volkswagen. [China Car Times]
