Bumblebee's model is an early 1970's Volkswagen Beetle with bumpers that were only available to the export versions of the Beetle. The yellow color of Bumblebee was also only available for the export version Volkswagens as the color in Germany was used by the then state owned German Postal Service (Deutsche Bundespost) and therefore the color was not available to the public until 1990.

While Charlie's mom is driving Bumblebee, she freaks out when Charlie pulls up next to the driver's window in her moped and says that she was afraid she was being carjacked. The term carjacking was not used in 1987. Per Wikipedia: The word is a portmanteau of car and hijacking. The term was coined by EJ Mitchell, an editor with The Detroit News. The News first used the term in a 1991 report on the murder of Ruth Wahl, a 22-year-old Detroit drugstore cashier who was killed when she would not surrender her Suzuki Sidekick. See more »
Travis Knight has delivered us an amazing Bumblebee movie where we finally understand the story and see a true bond between a human and machine. Bumblebee is a entertaining movie with stunning CGI and the best transformers story we've gotten since the 1986. This movie is indeed a 10/10 and is up there as one of the best 2018 action movies.
