|So there it was, god forbid the forums were going crazy over "How in the world could VW kill off the Scirocco!!" Everyone said, "Oh the Corrado, is just a squished down GTI", thats how VW was positioning it. Truth be told, VW was trying to break into a new concept the Scirocco could not do, give VW a performance minded vehicle. We knew they had a "Hot Hatch" but it wasn't sexy by a common mans eye. I remember seeing all the wiz bang pyrotechnics VW was trying to use to convince people they had built a true "pure" sports car. "It's build on it's own platform" they said. Has an "active" spoiler for more down force. blah, blah, blah.... In the end VW killed off a car that could have evolved from the Scirocco/Corrado time and really built something cool. Truth be told, VW just couldn't keep the prices inline with it's competition but more importantly it kept having to restrain itself from god forbid, making a faster, sexy, more pure sports car then the GTI! From what I read they are about to do it again!!!
