      So we got a replacement for our black Beetle RS. Since the old car was an autoshow car that wasn't street legal, we needed to pick up a regular production replacement. So using a Beetle Turbo as a base car for this project, we've got limited time to get something built before Waterfest coming up in a few weeks. We still have the Brembo brakes, H&R suspension and the 20" VMR 710 orange wheels sitting here. We'll add some performance mods this time around with chip tuning, intake and exhaust.

      We've also started installing a matte dark silver wrap on the car and will change the graphics them from the blatant GT3RS theme to a little more subtle GT3RS 4.0 (or 2.0 in our case) theme.

      FULL STORY & PHOTOS

      I was JUST thinking "Beetle news has gotten slow. I wonder when someone will pick one up and post here. Or when we'll see the first 'vert pictures. Or maybe there will be more 'R' news" and then BAM! this gets posted. Excellent!

      Cabrio will be out closer to L.A. Auto Show in November (photos may come sooner though).

      Beetle R is still up in the air needing approval from management, so nothing new to report there yet. However German press is reporting that management didn't like the VR6 power plant and has ordered that the newer revised 2.0T be made to work in the current Beetle. So we'll see...

      I approve of this as well.
      There’s more to it than that, though. I feel the fast Golf is a part of me. We’ve grown up together. When it came along, all simple and full of fun, I was living in a flat in London. Now it’s soft and luxurious and I’m slouched in a house in the Cotswolds. It’s like 1970s rock music. New stuff comes along which I’m sure is cleaner and better produced but it doesn’t have the heart and soul of the original.

      I dont really care which motor goes in 2.0t/3.6/2.5t as long as it is awd.
      2.0t would be ideal and the easiest which is what i am hoping to see but either way this will be my next car. probably in some obnoxious color too.

      Excellent. I'm excited to see the outcome now that's it a production unit and you can actually drive it around.
