This guy we know knows this chick who dated this guy whose brother played pub trivia with this dude who once spent an hour in a hotel bar with a woman who implied she might be a Volkswagen rep. She apparently confirmed the Volkswagen Scirocco will indeed be coming to the US, despite several reports to the contrary (and confirming one report to the affirmative). The Scirocco, as you may know, started life as a concept car based on the familiar Rabbit/Passat platform. Dubbed Iroc (ScIROCco, get it?), it rolled out at the Paris show last year wearing a funky shade of metallic green and a hatch-like comportment that reminded some of an Opel, and others of a really far-out turnip. Reports have pegged production at 40,000 per year, though there's no word yet on how many might be destined to the US.
