    Beijing: Volkswagen New Midsize Coupe Concept is an aspirational Jetta
    1398177900

    Meet the Volkswagen baby CC. Okay, that's not really it's name (VW calls it the New Midsize Coupe Concept), but this sleek, four-door coupe draws more than a little inspiration from the CC while riding on VW's MQB platform. It's a looker, we think, and is an eye-pleasing departure from the bland styling of the current Jetta. The sleeker front end is ...

    Report: Porsche 911 with VW turbodiesel prepares for LeMons assault
    1395424800

    LeMons racing is a wonderful example that setting limits can actually breed creativity. The series mandates that all entries must cost US$500, not counting safety equipment, and that cap forces teams to be ingenious in how they build a racecar. Take for example this diesel-powered Porsche 911, which its creators have dubbed Ferkel the Nein-11, that will ...

    Official: VW updates Scirocco with revised styling, new engines
    1392825600

    The Scirocco is undoubtedly one of the better-looking models in the Volkswagen lineup, but reintroduced back in 2008, it's now been on the market – some markets, anyway – for the better part of six years. VW is said to have an all-new replacement in the works, but before that arrives, the German automaker has announced a facelifted version ...
