Volkswagen Announces Production Version Of Golf GTI
The last time we saw the Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet concept was at the Volkswagen fan-fest in Austria. The car was unveiled along with a host of other new models, which included the Golf R Cabriolet as well. But recent buzz has it that the company is all set to take the vehicle to a production stage.
Volkswagen intends to introduce the GTI Cabriolet at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month. A point to note is that this is only the second time that a full-blown convertible is coming built with the GTI engine, that too with the suspension kit and other accessories straight from the factory. The first time around, Volkswagen had offered the GTI’s engine in certain versions of the Golf Cabriolet and Eos in select markets.
If rumors serve right, this could well be the last model in the current sixth-generation range of the Golf before it gets a replacement next year. In addition to that, Volkswagen is also busy preparing for the launch of the production version of the 268-horsepower, all-wheel drive Golf R Cabriolet. Though it looks like exciting times ahead for Volkswagen, the chances that these production models would make it to the US seem fairly vague.
