Volkswagen design chief Walter de Silva has revealed the company is still considering a roadster like the BlueSport concept.

Speaking to Auto Motor and Sport, de Silva said he is one of several employees that are pushing for a compact roadster. He also added, "This is a vehicle that we particularly like and we always have in mind."

As we have previously reported, Volkswagen introduced the BlueSport concept at the 2009 North American International Auto Show. It featured a 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI engine that developed 180 HP (132 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. This enabled the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 226 km/h (140 mph).
