Report: Volkswagen still considering compact roadster based on BlueSport Concept
WorldCarFans reports that Volkswagen is still serious interested in producing a compact roadster similar to the 2009 BlueSport Concept. Word comes from Auto Motor und Sport of Germany, who recently spoke to Volkswagen’s design head honcho, Walter de Silva.
de Silva reportedly said that he is one of several employees advocating the introduction of a new compact roadster.
“This is a vehicle that we particularly like and we always have in mind,” de Silva elaborated.
The 2009 Volkswagen BlueSport Concept debuted at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show and sported a 2.0L TDI turbodiesel four-banger good for 180hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and was capable of a 0-62 in just 6.6 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph.
No other detail was shared, other than de Silva’s comment on the matter. Either way, should Volkswagen do it?
