      Don't forget VW is building a plant in Kentucky iirc. There's some US jobs for ppl getting layoffs at GM.

      They're still bitter about WW2 so they keep the good cars to themselves... Jerks.

      I hate you Volkswagen of America because you keep making such massive marketing mistakes. Routan, Phaeton, no Polo, no Scirocco, limited diesels, roadster... do I really need to go on?
      30 Volkswagens under my belt and I might never get a chance to buy the new Volkswagen of my dreams because you have your head so far up your arse that a ray of sunshine has a better chance of reaching the center of the Earth.

      So it's probably safe to say that we will get the 265hp GTI-R. It only makes sense to share platforms, right???

      I bang my head knowing that VW will never have the balls to bring such a beautiful car here to the US. This model is so much sexier looking than the other 'base' models.

      hate the new R symbol, hate VWoA even more for being ignorant and not bringing this amazing car to the states. They always are micromanaging too much and miss the big picture.
      They just don't get it - a car like this, although probably not a great business case, is never going to be a profitable endevour in itself. ...but a car like this can only enhance the brand image, and VW is a brand with a nice core of enthusiasts and people who are passionate about the brand because of cool products like this they did in the past.
      People who bought original Sciroccos and Corrados didn't fill the company's pockets but they remember those cars lovingly and probably drive Jettas and Passats now. They proved at the time VW's capabilities in engineering and styling and pushed the envelope. Heck, I didn't even own one of those icons but I feel the passion.
      If all they want to make is minivans and midsize vanilla-mobiles, we will all soon forget...
      I dare VW to bring this at loss, even as a fashion statement. They don't realize how fashion-driven the US is, and just seeing one on the road will excite people and create future VW owners

      I would have to by that car if it came here (only in manual), looks unbelievable. It would be a smart move for VW to bring it here.

      Totally agree with you^ much like the R8, which doesn't make Audi the core of its money, it is recognized by nearly everyone as the "Super Car Audi" and therefore an important icon for image.

      Wow another great VW that has a very slim chance of making it to the US.
      When will VWoA realize that this won't take away from GTI sales, but rather add another option to buyers and enthusiasts? The Scirocco, as mentioned above, would only add character to the VW brand.
      VWoA if you're watching this thread, stop over analyzing and just bring this car here!
      [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] for the awesome design of this car.

      This car would be way too much money to sell in the states. I say this car would be close to $40k. How many of you would actually buy a FWD car at that price? Don't get me wrong, this is one of the hottest cars VW has built but too much money for what it is. VWoA also knows hatch backs don't sell well in the US.

      Ridiculous, vw does it again, they don't listen to any of us. They show us a hatch back concept, most of us say fast back. We say bring it to the states we'll buy it (i'd buy a scirocco if they brought it, I wouldn't buy a gti regardless). We say why not make an awd version and bring it to the us and replace the r32 with it...they make a fwd r version and still dont bring it to the us. What ever. I'll never buy a new VAG car, whats the point.

      I would never own because you cant get with a stick I dont think. What are you THINKING VW. You already RUINED the R32 without a stick. Please do **** this up again.
