VW Bluesport Production Likely

VW BluesportThis is the kind of rumor from the Detroit show we like to spread: Word has it that the Volkswagen Bluesport, the drop-top mid engine sports car motivated by the 180 HP diesel that gets 57 miles per gallon will be produced and imported into the U.S..

It was plain to see that the Bluesport was essentially production-ready, and that got our mouths watering. And then to fan the flames of our hopes, two VW execs have given indications that a road-going version is on the way. In Auto Motor und Sport, VW’s Ulrich Hackenberg said the Bluesport was headed to production, and also gave a price quote for the roadster: between €22,000 and €24,500, depending on engine options. Also, VW engineer Thomas Inglenath backed up Hackenberg, saying the Bluesport could be in showrooms as early as 2012.

The Bluesport was shown in Detroit with a diesel, but Hackenberg said the production car would be available with a range of engine options, in addition to the company’s TSI powerplants. Also, VW’s dual-clutch semi-auto transmission would be part of the mix.
