      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

      Agreed. Companies who only focus on short term investments always die. I like what they did with only offering it in a manual. The the MKV R32 is ruined by only being offered with the DSG. Ps the locking diff on this car must be awesome!!

      imo just another dissapointment. i feel the company is slacking big time and is affraid to be creative just like everyother company. They can do soo much better, it looks like a civic. ghey.

      Yes DSG? Cool.
      No 4-mo? Lame.
      Looks - I'm undecided except to say I'm sick of the boy racer blue.

      This is more what the Scirocco should look like. This is closer the fastback look of the original Scirocco.

      diggin the style and the wheels. bring it here with a 6 speed and 4-motion. otherwise the only diff. between it and the gti-r would be the styling.

      buuuut we'll probably only get the gti-r anyways

      i'd be all over this if it comes in a true manual transmission. from the sounds of it, they have the fwd dialed in. stick for 32k or less and it'd be an awesome car to have.

      I'm sad and mad. This car is awesome and we'll never see it. Why? Why? WHY?
      I can't understand why we miss out on all the cool cars? Are we really that lame?

      I don't like the Mazda 3 oh i mean the New Scirocco.
      I owned a 1980 , 1981 and a 1990 Corrado, I loved those cars
      I want to like the new Scirocco, the front and sides of the car are nice
      but the ass looks identacal to a mazda 3.
      It's bad enough I realized the other day that VW is the european
      equivalent of Honda, "mass produced comuter cars" when VW made
      the Scirocco and Corrado it was a compleat departure from the
      comuter cars they were producing at that time.
      The body styling and engine difference set them apart from the rest.
      The origanal Scirocco A1 and A2 then the Corrado all had a sweptback
      rear hatch.
      The 16v, G60 and VR6 were all great advances in engine development
      and debut in the Scirocco/Corrado. now the TSI is the current advance
      in engine plateform.
      I like the new TSI engine. the one thing i wanted in the Corrado was
      RWD or AWD.
      Food for Thought

      If this car came in 4Motion I wouldnt care if it was 6 speed or DSG. I would sell my MK4 R32 in a second and buy one of these. I would even pay a price tag of $40k ish. We already pay these prices for similar Audi cars.
      And comparing this to the GTI is useless. I would never buy a new GTI. The MK5 ruined it all.
