    1412722740

    If you're in the market for a German hot hatch and the GTI just won't do it for you, Volkswagen offers the more potent Golf R as well.

    Video: Twin-engine 14-cylinder VW Jetta exists because it can
    1412708400

    Bravo to people with a crazy idea and enough time to actually make it a reality. Without them, we would never see insane creations like this one. This builder took a Volkswagen Jetta with a VR6 up front (already a good place to start), chopped out the rear seats, put in a roll cage and mounted a ...

    Supercars Meet Muscle Trucks, In Search Of The Most Potent Twist 1412697480

    Horsepower may steal a lot of headlines, but the always-more-complex torque figure is often a critical one for both the workingman and the motoring playboy. The measure of rotational force is a function of horsepower and engine rpm, and it's also the twist that can liquefy one's tires or haul ...

    Paris: 2015 Volkswagen Polo GTI is the VW hot hatch we really want
    1412287260

    The degree of love for the Volkswagen Golf GTI at Autoblog is at or above that for any other hatchback sold in the US market. That's undoubtedly influenced by the fact that what may be the best GTI in the VW stable, the Polo GTI, isn't sold here. Were it, we guess the Ford Fiesta-sized bomber ...

    1412190000

    Just over one year ago, we reported on rumors that Volkswagen was pairing with its then-new corporate cousin, Italian motorcycle maker Ducati, to build a high-performance version of the XL1, a vehicle that we (actually, I) said would be a "firecracker," thanks to its super-low curb weight, ...

    Official: Volkswagen charges up new Passat GTE for the trip to Paris
    1412004600

    We all know that the letters GT stand for Gran Turismo, but tacking on another letter can evoke a different meaning altogether. GTO for Ferraris (or Pontiacs), GT-R for Nissan supercars, GTA for high-performance Alfa Romeos (or car-theft video games, or metropolitan Toronto)... The list goes on ...

    1411765260

    We love Motor Trend's annual World's Greatest Drag Race video.

The lineup this year boasts some impressively fast ...

    1411735500

    Volkswagen of America honcho Michael Horn has already promised to bring the slow-selling but excellent Phaeton back to the United States in 2018 or 2019. Beyond the confirmation of the nameplate, though, there's really very little in the way of concrete data on what the next generation of VW's ...

    "It may fly within Japan, but not globally," VW's Shoji said. It's long been battered into our beleaguered auto writer brains that the ultimate future source of motivation for tomorrow's cars and trucks is not gasoline, diesel, electricity, natural gas, propane or solar power – it's the ...

    Report: VW announces Russian shutdown, cites floundering market
    1410362700

    The Russian auto industry is not in a great place right now. A weakened currency, the rouble, is stinging automakers, and in the case of Volkswagen, has prompted a trimming of production. VW lowered production projections at its Kaluga factory from 150,000 units per year to just 120,000. Kaluga, ...
