Every year, Volkswagen bequeaths a gift to a bunch of VW nuts in Austria. This year, the gift isn’t a Volkswagen at all. It’s an Audi. A 600-horsepower, electric-turbo’d, be-winged and be-vented Audi TT. And it looks like it’s going to eat your children.
Škoda’s Wörthersee concept, put together by 23 young trainees under the watchful eyes of chief designer Jozef Kabaň, is an almost eerily perfect combination of our incomprehensible love of Skoda and our yearning for El Camino-ized anything.
The Wörthersee meeting in Austria is the biggest annual Volkswagen gathering, and the company always makes sure the fans have enough crazy concept cars to take pictures of. This year’s GTI will be designed by a group of apprentices aged 17-25, so prepare your Matchboxes!
Audi has teamed up with outdoor company heimplanet to build an rough-weather-ready geodesic retractable tent for the Q3 SUV. I'm not sure how deep into the great outdoors a Q3 could really get, but you'll certainly look cool wherever you pitch this bad boy.
We knew the Audi A3 Clubsport Quattro concept has 525 horsepower worth of five-cylinder awesomeness. What we didn't know until today is that most of the trunk lid is a giant freaking air brake. Look at that thing go!

Hatchbacks! Techno music! Germans of all shapes and sizes! These are the things you missed if you weren't able to attend Volkswagen's annual GTI festival in Wörthersee. Fortunately, this video will recap things if you didn't go.
Somehow, Volkswagen allowed a group of mad scientists to temporarily take over the Golf program. That's the only explanation I can come up with that accounts for the Design Vision GTI, the 503-horsepower concept that debuted VW's Wörthersee festival.
This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place at 9:00 AM. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
A front-wheel drive hatchback has no right to look as good as this new Seat Leon Cup Racer, which debuted at Europe's giant Wörthersee VW meet over the weekend.
The TT Ultra Quattro Concept gets rid of a significant amount a weight, adds more power, keeps the all-wheel drive and goes to burn rubber at VAG's annual tuning extravaganza, the Wörthersee Festival. We'll take three.
The annual VW bash at Wörthersee is the Volkswagen equivalent of Coachella, only with fewer palm trees and the only Interpol on hand are the off-duty agents in their GTIs. Like in years' past, the VW Group showed several concepts to tease the GTIsti.
