Hey have you guys seen the blue R from the auto show in china?
I hope they make this car
China would definitely re-badge it to read - Zhong hua ren min gong he quo pauche.
(Peoples Republic of China Sports Car) or Zhong 'pauche' for short! Kind of sounds like
'Porsche' , doesn't it?
P.S. - Chinese prefer Red. It's their lucky color.

i am REALLY hoping this car makes it all the way through with everything seen: the hood vents, the widened bumpers, the exhausts... this is really the way the Beetle that Ferdinand Porsche designed would look today.. like the baby 911 he meant it to be. If VW compromises on any of these design elements... I'm gonna be super mad. Like this -->
I'm already trying to figure out how to get my hands on the schematics in case I have to customize a Beetle to achieve this look.
The convertible is supposed to be coming in November but nothing on the Beetle R.
At best, you would be looking at some time next year and that would still need current
comments from VW that it is in their plans for the future which has not been the case
to date. Then, even if it does get the go-ahead, no one knows if VW is leaning toward
AWD or not. I think we have a better chance of getting the Scirocco before a Beetle R
and that, at best, would be mid to late 2013 or 2014 if it comes at all.
