      They'd better hurry up or I'm gonna have to lease a Camaro

      It's time for my almost 25 year old Rocco to be on the road for only six months of the year, and for pleasure not business use.

      OMG, VW, you should sit up and take notice....build a Scirocco/Corrado concept like THIS...and you will have customers like me falling over themselves getting to the dealer to BUY IT. WHY the heck they couldn't think of a design like this is beyond me. 'nuff said - RB

      My 2 cents: I like this design, most of it: rear, front, side.

      But I don't like the truncated lower rear corner of the back quarter window: too evocative of BMW:

      Making it pointy like in the original Corrado would work for me as it would recall the original Corrado shape more.

      But still, a very good job!

      If I could just get the back window slope of the SCIROCCO to go the correct direction I would be happy. I have an even better design but I have not finished it up enough to post it.

      No, It's just a photoshopped new Jetta Coupe

      If they ever bring the Scirocco over to the States, they should put a V6 in it! The TSI is great, but something about the growl and power of a N/A V6... Nothing like it.

      that looks sooo good... i wish the new rocco looked like that... looks like a new rocco or corrado... I would brake my piggy bank for that.

      In some European circles the corrado is listed as been the scirocco Gen3 or that other scirocco. But just like things change. The ghia was replaced by the rocco 1 rocco 1 was replaced by the rocco 2 and the rocco 2 was replaced by the corrado ( in the us). I for one would get one if I could get 2 baby seats in the rear. Guess we should just be happy they didnt release another supercharged corrado and make it RWD!!!

      The ghia was replaced by the rocco 1 (Because Karmann wanted to keep building cars and keep jobs, VW did not care about the Gia in the late 60s but Karmann did) rocco 1 was replaced by the rocco 2 and the rocco 2 was replaced by the Corrado (but the MK2 remained in production till 92 because of the price of the Corrado).

      Interviewer:
      "What pleases you about the new Scirocco 3?"

      "Shall I be honest? - Gar not, the Scirocco 3 does not look like a coupe! In "2 + 2" for me hears on the coupe. The silhouette is much too-heavy sedan."

      Interviewer:
      "What would you do to the Scirocco 3 if you were still involved?"

      "In any case make it, "coupe-like"."
