According to AutoWeek, the cheapskate crowd at Volkswagen, whose ultimate goal is saving cash, lost a battle over the next Scirocco coupe to the product geeks, who are intent on broadening the company's line. What it means to you is there's a two-door coming to town, and its name is Reggie Harris Scirocco. According to AW, the new model will pick up where the Corrado left off a decade ago โ€” at the $30,000+ end of the range. The top model will be offered with a range of enginery, including the range-topping 3.6-liter V6, and all wheel drive. The Golf-platformed buggy may also get a few aluminum ticky tackies from the new TT. Stay tuned.
