    What would a new VW Corrado look like?

    <via autoblog>

    Patrick Moczarsky's take on a new Volkswagen Corrado Click above for high-res image gallery

    Just about every Volkswagen aficionado who knows the Corrado has thoughts about the chunky coupe. Introduced in 1988 to replace the aging-yet-still-cool Scirocco, VW first "full-blooded sports car" went nuts with tech and equally nuts with pricing. The Corrado's VR6 engine and speed-reactive rear spoiler couldn't get people past the steep cost of entry, and the car was dead six years later.

    The car still maintains a strong cult following, however, which is why graphic designer Patrick Moczarsky has envisioned what a new Corrado would look like, even though VW itself has released a new version of its predecessor, the Scirocco. The original car isn't a bad looker, which is why we aren't surprised that Moczarsky's concept looks almost exactly like the new VW corporate face on an old Corrado body. Moczarsky's other nod to the original: this one is also described as "expensive." Follow the jump for his thoughts on the car, and have a look at it in serial and tuned form in the gallery of high-res photos below. Just for fun, we've also embedded a bonus video of a VW Corrado G60 ad circa 1988, so be sure to check that out as well.

    The roofline sucks ass and the spoiler is just shaped like poo.

    See sig for a real Corrado. I'm getting sick of VW's roundness lately, good thing all the pic is, is a photoshopped Hyundai Genesis. ew.

    Cars are a form of transportation... Volkswagen is a way of life.

    Well since there is a rumored smaller mid-engine Porsche platform that will be shared with Audi coming in the next few years, that's a very real possibility. Maybe something a little higher-end than the Newer-Beetle we will be seeing in a year or two.

    Ya i saw a picture of that on Topgear. The only problem is that if it comes out as a Porsche then the price will be high and in classic Porsche style options that should be standard will be idiotically expensive.

    All they need to do is make a slightly longer hardtop version of the Bluesport concept and put the motor out of the S3/TTS/ED30 GTI in it!!! That would be HOOOOTT!!
