    Spies at the Nurburgring have caught another version of the Golf R testing in Germany, and this one appears to be the Golf R. Carrying a lot of speed through the corners, this is a promising first look at a car that will carry the heavy weight of big expectations. Well-founded rumors have the...

    While we know what the Mk8 Golf looks like now, we still haven’t really seen once owners have had their wicked way with it. Europe’s JMS is previewing what it plans to do with the car. Although these upgrades are all for the base Golf (which we may or may not get someday), they do give us a hint...

    Although ABT hasn’t yet upped the power, it has revealed what it would do to give the eighth generation of Golf look a little more special.

    The next Golf R will be a surprising beast, Jost Capito, head of R GmbH, told Motor Trend. Along with some evolutionary changes, there will be plenty to talk about. As you might expect, Capito called the next Golf R a “real driving machine” and added that there would be lots of small...

    Although the GTI has now been unveiled, there are still a lot of performance models in the works. The Golf R, we know for sure is coming, and the Arteon and Tiguan R could also be around the corner. This video shot in a parking lot seems to show VW winter-testing a series of increasingly...

    Hey, look. They made an ad for us. In Volkswagen’s latest, inner-ear damaging ad, a father and son share a tender moment over the excellence of their respective generations of Golf. I don’t know if it’s just me, though, but this ad is a little nauseating. The driving shots are all so...

    A lot of the time, we try to contrive important-seeming reasons to post videos. This is not one of those times. There are driving shots of the GTI. We enjoyed them. We thought we'd share. There are three new videos of the new GTI showing it: Driving Not driving And not driving again but...

    Well. Here it is. Ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen has released images and specs for the Mk8 GTI (as well as the GTE and the GTD, but we won’t be getting those, so we’re focusing on the GTI, which we will get in America). European output has been bumped up to 245 HP and...

    Okay, it’s actually a “near-production concept car” version of the GTI, according to VW, but that’s close enough to get us all atwitter with excitement. The rest of the GTI will be revealed, as reported, at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. For now, though, the front features those same...

    Last week we learned that the new GTI would be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March. And now we have an idea of what it might look like. Pictures of a suspiciously spoilered Golf leaked on Instagram this week and the consensus around the internet is: GTI.             View this post on...

    We only have a few more months to wait before the next generation of the GTI is unveiled, according to a report from Autocar. Naturally, this will be the European model, so we’ll have to wait longer here in the US. But Volkswagen hopes to have four performance models in European dealerships...

    Twitter-user Caleb J Schroeter has posted a picture of a suspicious-looking Golf testing down in South Africa and there’s an argument to be made that it could be the next Golf R. The picture was actually posted earlier this week when we first saw it. At the time, we decided it was a GTE, and...
