Sneak Preview: Volkswagen Golf R20!

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

If you are the type of person that has been waiting … and waiting and waiting for a brand new VW to come out … here is a sneak preview for you!  The Frankfurt Motor Show is right around the corner and seriously – the brand new Volkswagen Golf R20 had to leak out at some point right?  This car – while it might have a small fan base in the US is certainly gaining more and more attention.
The Volkswagen Golf R20 is going to be powered up with all sorts of upgrades and feature a 2.0L engine with 265 HP and 258 lb-ft, likely the exact same engine as the Scirocco R20 and it is all kinds of awesome!

To me – VW is the best brand in the world – the cars last and to be perfectly honest, they look incredible.  So if you are looking for something chic and inexpensive – VW is always the best option!

Porsche + VW = Love

Well folks, it is officially official. The cat and mouse chase between Porsche and Volkswagen may finally be reaching its peak. Recently at a meeting containing Volkswagen’s advisory board, the members approved an agreement which, ultimately, will allow for Porsche’s assimilation.

At present, Porsche SE has a little more than half of the common shares of Volkswagen, and it has the option for an extra twenty percent. These may be sold to the Emirate of Qatar. After that is completed — the amount of the transaction is unknown — it is expected that Volkswagen will buy shares — 42 percent — of Porsche AG.

Volkswagen will also be buying shares in Porsche Holding Salzburg, which is a trading company belonging to the Piech and Porsche families.

Then, by the end of 2011, it is believed Porsche and Volkswagen will finally merge and become a single company.
