Dead or not (and signs are it is not totally dead, but in a precarious status) the Bluesport Roadster is something VW should, and needs to, build. I think it would do great things for the brand as a whole, sales and image wise.
Im interested in more up to date discussion on these boards. Not sure a new thread is warranted. I said it then and i still say it now. Id nearly give a nut for one of these. Now comfortably in my 30s, im feeling a reaaal urge to get a grassroots sports car, and a TDI powered roadster like this would definitely get my business, as well as keep me loyal to VW.
