With a VW badge? Next year VW will announce the VR8 MKVII R52, it'll be priced right to **** with Porsche's offerings, but then some Matt-Damon-In-Good-Will-Hunting janitor named Hans will remember the immense success the phaeton experienced in the US and VW will realize no one wants premium $$ VWs here outside of SUVs (even though I and other enthusiasts think it'd be sweet to have them), or like so many of their teasers/concepts will cancel it shortly after testing the waters.

In related news, when Audi bought Ducati they started working on a T-5 all-wheel drive Avant motorcycle.
this is obviously another diesel rotary turbo supercharger hybrid rear engine front wheel drive thread.
Not sure if troll or mentally disabled.
W8 for another go around. Perhaps they learned something from the Veyron and could fix some of its issue ?!
I'd like to see the I5 2.5T used in more application .

they keep making the vr6 larger in displacement (2.8 - now what 3.6?), and the vr8 is actually a patented design owned by VW.
I'm hoping they put it in something eventually, rear wheel drive would be cool. I meant a VR8 in a Porsche rather. I'm wondering why they are sitting on it? The fact that it would be a single head means that it could be put in a compact design...
Has anything in the R and D used the VR8?
"The first generation Porsche Cayenne base model is powered by a 3.2-liter VR6 engine producing 250 hp (190 kW); modifications in the exhaust manifold allow power to peak at 6700 rpm. This is the same 3.2-liter motor found on a Volkswagen Touareg and Volkswagen R32."
if you read the progression of things it only makes sense that it would come about in something, if even as a prototype.
