Volkswagen are apparently planning to unveil a Golf GTI Cabriolet at the Geneva Motor Show next month. It will be the final model variant of the sixth generation Golf before it is replaced starting from next year.

The open-top version of the Golf GTI has not been built since the first generation but according to a report, it could be set for a comeback. Volkswagen are apparently planning to unveil a Golf GTI Cabriolet at the Geneva Motor Show next month. It will be the final model variant of the sixth generation Golf before it is replaced starting from next year.

The rumors have surfaced from Autoexpress, but it is important to point out that no specific sources have been mentioned.

We were given an initial look at the possible model at the Wörthersee 2011 when the German brand unveiled a concept version of the model. Rumors since then have been scarce but if the report proves to be correct the concept could be heading to production.

The concept was equipped with a 2.0-liter TSI engine that develops 210 PS (155 kW / 208 hp) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque. It enabled it to accelerate from 0-100 kph (0-62mph) in around seven seconds, before hitting a top speed of roughly 240 km/h (149 mph).
