    Volkswagen BlueSport roadster production put on indefinite hold

    Remember the VW BlueSpot roadster concept? A very cool little roadster that was supposed to share its platform with the Audi R4 and Porsche 550 Spyder relaunch. Volkswagen is re-evaluating whether the BlueSport makes sense as they do not believe they will be able to sell the 50,000 units annually that would be necessary for the model to be profitable. VW engineering head Uli Hackenberg told AutoCar, “It’s not a technology problem, but of finding enough customers. I don’t have enough sales volume to get the go-ahead."

    The Porsche variant may be on hold as well as Porsche contemplates if the model will eat into Boxster sales. Audi reportedly is still going forward with the R4. If Porsche backs out we think there may be a chance the entire platform is scrapped.

    I remember this!

    I would definitely be interested if they made this! This thing could seriously haul ass with some work on that diesel.... 50psi anyone?

    It looks so good and mean for a VW too! Honestly, one of my favorite VW designs.

    It stinks they can't justify it. VW is the world's largest automaker now. If they can't, who can?
