Judging by that curved windshield: I bet that car is a Super Beetle..........the one with MacPhearson struts instead of upper control arms and Torsion bars.

I catch what you're saying since RSA Bugs also kept the vintage wide circle 5 lug wheel bolt pattern after it was dropped by VW (probably) everywhere else.
