      If there only going to bring 5000 units over even at that price there will probably be more demand then units available.

      Agreed.

      Thats a couple options away from a Boxster.

      I really like the Scirocco but if you're going to spend that much money, which would you pick?

      Even if this came with 4 motion the price wouldn't hold up. Think about it, you can still find new "limited" number R32s for sale on the lot. The economy is at an all time low. A 38k + vw scirroco isn't going to sell. I really want one of these cars but for that price there are too many other options. Obviously this is all speculative anyway but I hope it comes in at a lower price.

      i'm in the market for a 2nd new car in the next year, i fit the demographic for this car perfectly (age, previous rocco owner, good solid income, 6 time vw owner). this car would be at the top of my short list.

      however, $38-39,000 is a bit much for me to stomach, given the other choices i'd invariably have to look at in that price segment. if i can get this car for a tad over $30,000, then we might have a winner. i doubt the chances of that happening, however.

      It will not cost that much.

      Someone was converting prices using a currency converter again.

      here's an exerpt from the email i received from vwoa last week:

      Volkswagen of Germany forwarded your e-mail to me. I appreciate your passion for our products! As a long-time member of the Volkswagen family, your feedback is important to us. I understand you would like to see the Iroc, formerly known as the Scirocco, come to the United States. I appreciate the opportunity to respond.

      We understand our customers are looking for a sportier model of car from us as an automotive manufacturer. For this reason, the Iroc has begun testing for the U.S. market. The Iroc combines a turbocharger and a supercharger to produce diesel-like fuel economy while still packing a punch. At this time, we do not have a release date, but I encourage you to visit our website at http://www.vw.com for updates on our upcoming vehicle releases.

      I think (I'm hoping) that the person answering his email was confused. There's no logical reason to call it an Iroc here and a Scirocco in the rest of the world. But then I think of the Rabbit...

      I hope that was the case... in the rest of the world it is actually less expensive than a GTi

      I can dig it. I'd trade my R32 for it in a heartbeat.

      Its called a Scirocco. Iroc was the name of the concept.

      I doubt it will come over here @ $38K. Nope the ideal price for this car (with the magnetic suspension, nice interior and perhaps a more powerful 2.0T) is slightly north of the GTI. I figure that this essentially the coupe version of the Eos and carries much of the GTI content, it should split the base price of the 2 cars for similar equipped versions.

      I would NOT pay that much for a Scirocco, sorry. My ceiling is 30. I love it but over 30 I could not justify it, Id go for an Audi or Porsche.

      I could see it going in the low 30's if it comes with AWD...look at the price differences of the 1st R32 when in Europe and in the US

    22. 11-13-2008 11:08 AM #22
      Well the R32 is no longer after this year in the states, so I am assuming that the price of the Scirocco will take the price of the R32.

      If you think about it, there has to be a happy medium. They can't sell the Scirocco for the same price as the GTI, it wouldn't make sense. They cant sell if for close to 40k because it would bump heads with the TT. So a high 20's - mid/low 30's is the price range that they will probably sell for. This is a broad price range that I am tossing out, but it leaves room for options (if any.) Lately VW has been putting out very little on different packages, I think the biggest one lately was the 3 packages for the MKV Gti.

      I too got the word last night from a friend who works at the dealer that the Scirocco will be coming into the states. I also spoke with a VW employee at an auto show this past weekend who confirmed it was on its way as well. Projected date from what the auto show gentleman said was around the same release date as the MKVI. Lets see how acurate my figures are by the end of the first quarter when VW puts out more info.

      I do plan on purchasing on of these. I will be selling my MKIIVR and a few other things, but I will make it a mission to get into one. Lets just hope I am not dissapointed and that it comes the way I would like to see it; AWD, leather and manual. DSG is nice, but the least they could do is give the option (refer to previous satement about options.) It is bold to say that I will be selling these items in preperation for a vehicle I have never driven before, but if it drives like it looks than I will not be dissapointed. If I am well, I will return or not buy it and have money to just sit in savings while I keep driving the 337 around.

      How old is that email from? I thought the iroc name was just for concept purposes. It shouldnt be called iroc since there was an american car called iroc before and was not anything close to being german.

      I cringed when I read Iroc myself. I thought that was just the name of the concept & I seem to remember Autoweek or someone writing that VW would not be able to sell the car here with that name due to licensing issues. When Chevy was selling the IROC Camaros they were running Camaro-bodied cars in the race series. I believe that NASCAR actually owns the IROC series. IROC or Iroc just doesn't make any sense.

      I do hope she's right about the twin charger motor

      The email was sent on 11/04/2008 @ 5:46 pm

      I do have a name and contact number for the lady who sent the email, but I didn't think it would be appropriate to post it on here.

      This actually looks more like a Scirocco than the new "Scirocco".

      i don't get why people keep lurking in these forums just to tell everyone else how much they don't think this car is as good as the original.

      VW's ad-wizard like plan to bring over a limited amount at a horribly high price is sounding more and more like a disaster with each bit of rumor coming out.

      I wouldn't spend more than $25k on one of these even though I really like it. For $25k one can get a new GTI that would probably kick the snot out of it.

      this is the funniest statement yet. forget the 25k, would you like vw to give it to you for free? would that make you happy? get real guy.

      and for you to say that a gti will beat one of these is hilarious. you have no idea what drivetrain they're shipping with this car.

      maybe you should change your username to snap_judgement.

      I hate all this speculations since there is no confirmed facts but i will throuhg some more out there since its all we got.

      I think price you guys would be looking in the high 20k since the speculation of what segment on the lineup its sapose to take is the r32 and since it dose not come with 4mo or a 3.2 should be able to knock off a few grand.

      Since vw pused its 2 seater mid egine roadster to detroit. I am fearly confident if VW plans on bring thses over it could be showen at LA this Friday.

      The GM at the dealership I work at said $30-35K-ish and the only option would be transmission choice.

      I wonder if the North American launch will be at NAIAS in Detroit in January????
