Get those SCCA memberships up to date, kids, VW's confirmed a new sport coupe is indeed on the way for the 2008 model year, and that it'll be built at the company's plant in Setubal, Portugal, Edmunds Inside Line, via Reuters, is reporting today. It took the company more than a year since the first rumors started swirling to admit building a successor to the Scirocco โ€” last seen in the US in 1988. The news is nothing we haven't heard from German magazines over the past month or so, but sometimes it's nice to hear it from the source.
