Ryan Turner has been focused on the VW industry for over 13 years. His obsession started with the purchase a ’72 VW Beetle in high school and has since spiraled out of control and consumed all aspects his life. Three years ago, he made the big leap: He quit his job as a government contractor to start his own business, Krauthouse Motorsports. With no formal training and little investment capitol, he has since expanded his portfolio to include a VW-themed t-shirt sales site and has most recently acquired VWDiesel.net, an online community of enthusiast committed to all things Volkswagen diesel related. With the support of his wife, he is working to build and expand the site to include a blog, podcast, custom builds, and more to help fuel VW enthusiasts worldwide.
