Well, you could run a new cable through the dash and attach it, OR do what the previous owner of one of my trucks did and attach a lawn mower pull cable to the mechanism and just have a simple release outside the vehichle. Not sure about the specifics of doing either of these things to a New Beetle, just trying to provide some constructive input.

Porsche engine in VW Beetle?

Porsche and Volkswagen have always been similar in design. Porsche engines will not fit into a beetle very easily. Just four bolts, three wires, one fuel line and one cable (only old Porsche 356 motor) .
