The car that was supposed to cross the wide, craggy, perilous canyon between the Passat and Phaeton, dubbed the C1, has now been back-burnerized by VW. The C1 was designed to be a potential 5-Series foil, but according to a Wall Street Journal article, will not be produced within the next five years. The project would have drawn too much cashola away from the introductions of VW's forthcoming Golf, Jetta and Passat launches (although the Golf has already been launched in other parts of the world). Available currency is also especially crucial for VW right now since they're trying to cut costs by 30 percent in order to save jobs.
