taken from autoexpress in the uk:
"Plans to resurrect the Eighties badge will be confirmed at next month's Paris Motor Show, when the German brand unveils a low-slung sporty four-seater coupé called the Concept S. We have discovered this model is designed to preview the Scirocco road car, as VW has given it the codename IROC!
After the Concept S makes its public debut, potential buyers will have to wait until 2008 before the roadgoing version arrives in VW main dealers here. When it does, the model will be the maker's first mid-sized coupé since the Corrado was axed in 1996.
The Scirocco is likely to have a similar face to the new Eos, and incorporate the familiar VW corporate grille.
A wide range of powerful engines is being lined up, including the new 1.4-litre turbo and supercharged TSI unit from the Golf GT. The GTI's 197bhp 2.0-litre will also be available, as will a 170bhp TDI oil-burner. A range-topping model could use the Golf R32's 3.2-litre V6 or a new 260bhp version of VW's 2.0-litre turbocharged FSI engine.
There will be a choice of either six-speed manual or DSG clutchless manual transmissions. The car is to be built on an all-new platform which will also underpin the next-generation Golf - although in the Scirocco this will be tuned to offer a more sporty drive."

Re: New Scirocco gets green light from Vw (theflygtiguy)

This subject has been discussed here ad nauseum and while it is fun to speculate about, at this point it is just that... speculation.
