VW To Unveil New Convertible At Frankfurt Show Next Month

Text from Deutsche Presse-Agentur GmbH.
Volkswagen said Thursday it will unveil its long-awaited new convertible next month at the Frankfurt car show and have the model in showrooms by early next year.

Unlike the previous VW convertible, which was based on the company's biggest-selling Golf model, the new soft-top will be based on the bigger Passat platform with some shortening.

The Volkswagen marque also has an open version of its New Beetle in its range.

Car magazines reported several months ago that Volkswagen had the convertible under design.

obviously the hard-top convertible Concept C... not a "soft-top"...

I would think that the correct details for this article was lost in translation. Yes the Concept C will be Golf based. If you read the article, it says a shortened Passat platform (which is based on the Golf...somewhat). But yes it will be a hard top.
