      Well the battle isn't determined yet. There are conflicting opinions in Germany on what powertrain to use in a Golf RS. Lightweight highly amped 2.0T FSI? Or 3.0 Turbo VR6? The fact that this R400...

      It is being seriously looked at. It is actually pretty easy to put together based on existing Golf R parts. The main question is how many could they sell and what would the substitution be from...

      No.

      And the actual two-door coupe market has largely dried up here. I was surprised at the numbers. Tough to make a business case for it at this point. I'd rather see other things from VW first...

      Andres moved back home to Michigan where family is. Has absolutely nothing to do with this. In fact he's the reason why the beetle and golf/GTI 7 turned out the way they did. I've worked with him on...

      Hoo boy. We get the euro Focus... Where's the RS for the last three generations in this market? VW gave us uninterrupted "euro" GTI and R models despite the limited market. If you are going to take...

      I think people at VWoA we're making a campaign to offer this model here and brought in a German-spec version to get feedback and support. Problem is when the engineers in Germany were told to look at...

      To make tooling changes to make room for the tank for one specific derivative in one specific market for an extremely niche product? Hard to justify. However they have to make the changes for the...

      Hardly. You guys need to realize extremely niche vehicles like the GTD are expensive endeavors for little return. When VW has more bread and butter profitable vehicles to offset special stuff like...

      GTD is not a done deal yet. Upcoming EU6 emissions dictate that it will need urea. For the German market that doesn't need to happen till 2016. However we would need it now and this is a problem as...

      All the typical TCL bullcrap aside... this is a study as it is shown, but it looks like VW will produce something like this that is limited production. What powers it in the end will be interesting...

      Go ahead and find my quote saying the Golf 7 GTI would be cheaper than Golf 6. I always said that the price would be similar to the outgoing model. Some Golf 7 models will have cheaper starting...
