Volkswagen has a secret sportscar up its sleave. But will its parent Porsche allow it?

Someone told the boys over at Autobild that Volkswagen Scirocco is not the end of story. In fact, it may be the beginning of the VW badge’s sporting plans of the future. Already we have Scirocco but in addition there is the Passat coupe cabriolet. Now another two-door is making its way into the fold and VW plans to place its source of go in the middle, just like the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Gallardo.

Said engine will not be oversized but you can bet your last bratwurst it will have force-feeding (or even double) to make things that more interesting. Cabriolet versions as well as R-badged special editions will appear as well. Drive will be provided by the trusty front wheels and VW’s 4motion, assisted by the new 7-speed DSG gearbox. Of course a manual is also on the cards for the enthusiast who refuses to give up. We’ve used the Concept R from 2003 as an illustration but as soon as renderings and spy pics show up you’ll know.
