    I really like VW for some reason. I'm liking where VW's styling is going. They're crossing into entry luxury.

    I'm beginning to dislike VW for the same reasons you like it.

    Stuff like the new Passat is OK, but I'd love to see some of the ingredients from Corrado, Scirocco, and early GTI return to the lineup. Lighter, simpler cars.

    The side view shown actually reminds me a bit of the Cobalt coupe. VW is coming out with some nice cars.

    I LOVE IT!!!!

    I can't wait to see the production version...hopefully it's as good as the picture..... looks heavilly based of the roadster concept from the front...

    Maybe going upscale...VW will finally bring Seat or Skoda over.....

    We have very similar tastes it seems! They should built it exactly like that pic, adn not change a thing. With designs like that it's understandable why people buy VW's, top-notch quality or not.

    The whole reason VW is moving upscale is because they can't make enough profit on their cheap cars.

    This is alright but I can't picture VW as an upscale brand...It just doesn't work.

    True.....but maybe having 2 upscale brands(VW/Audi) they can justify loosing money by bringing SEAT here (wishful thinking)

    I think overall...manufactures that have been in the game a while have to find somewhere to position their brand with the Koreans taking reign of cost efficient cars...it's making some brand want to move upscale, take for example Mazda which wants to eventually be a Japanese competitor to BMW.....Bread and butter is such a crowded segment...it's really hard to regain a foothold....

    Good design is good design. I question VW's move upmarket, not so much with the Jetta and Passat, but the Phaeton is just taking it too far. This car here is HOT!

    If they bring it out, thats a HUGE if, I suspect it will be an absolute blast. However I have serious reservations about VW being able to bring it to the states so cheaply.
