More Scirocco Rumblings Heard in Wolfsburg

Text from Leftlane News. Photo is artist's rendering.
After months of debate and internal struggle, Volkswagen has approved development and production of the 2009 Scirocco coupe, according to AutoWeek. The magazine claims there was an internal debate at VW over the design of the car, with one side wanting a dramatic sports coupe, and the other hoping to keep costs low with a more conservative offering. In the end, the car guys triumphed over the bean counters, the report says. The magazine has created a new computer rendering of the car, which is a slightly modified version of AutoWeb’s recent illustration of the car. We wouldn’t put too much faith in either drawing, but the general consensus is that VW has opted for a grille design similar to that of the EcoRacer Concept. Recent illustrations by Auto Motor und Sport suggested something similar, but also called for a less aggressive roofline — more true to the Scirocco name. In the end, it’s anyone’s guess exactly what design path VW will take — we’ll be patiently awaiting more details.
