If you remember the brilliant but unsuccessful Volkswagen Corrado, you'll probably want to check out these renderings by Patrick Moczarsky.

Created to show what a modern Corrado would look like, the renderings blend elements of the old model with Volkswagen's current design philosophy. Key features include a retractable rear spoiler, light alloy wheels, and a Scirocco-like front end.

According to Moczarsky, "We realize, of course, that Volkswagen will not present such a car right now, but the flight of imagination is so fascinating that it won't give us a moment's rest."

As you may recall, the original Corrado was built by Karmann between 1988 and 1995. It used a mix of Volkswagen platforms (B3 in the rear, A2 up front) and offered exceptional handling for its time. Despite being a hit with critics, only 97,521 Corrados were made.
