History of the Renault Caravelle
Built between 1958-1968, the Caravelle was Renault's attempt to create a coupe/cabriolet based on the Renault Dauphine that could compete with the popularity of the Volkswagen Beetle in North America. Conceived at a Renault Convention in Florida, the car throughout development was known as the "Floride". However, it was felt that the other US states would be alienated by this name so in English language speaking countries (the US, Canada & UK) it was marketed as the Caravelle until in 1962 where it would be marketed as the Caravelle in all countries.
