Wörthersee — the premier Volkswagen GTI meetup in the world — starts in just a few days in a small town in Austria. The event has been embraced by both Volkswagen and its fans. We usually end up seeing some pretty sweet concept cars like a Porsche-powered VW Type 2 or the bonkers mid-engine VW GTI W12. This year, we'll see the new VW Golf GTI TCR Prototype, a near-production ready hot hatch that goes into production this fall.
This is the cornering on the door handles approach fans of the Rabbit GTI loved, remixed for a new age. With no driver modes, a wheelbase nearly identical to that of the Mk1 and skinny 195-section tires, this is as close as you'll get to driving an original GTI.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI is a favorite among the Autoblog staff. Until recently, one among us owned a fifth-generation model. The current Mk7 is a great car, but it's getting along in years. It's been on sale for four years in the US and six years in Europe. Development on the eighth-generation is underway, and spy photographers caught an early test mule having a bit of trouble on the road.
It's the perfect combination of performance and features.
410-horsepower gasoline engine meets 16-horsepower electric motor.
Look for visual changes to accompany those under the hood.
Volkswagen has upgraded its European-market Golf GTI Cabriolet, now with the 220-hp engine we only get with a fixed roof and optional Performance Package - and trouncing the Eos and Beetle Cabrio in the process.
Volkswagen is bringing the production-spec 261-hp GTI Clubsport to the Frankfurt Motor Show. It's awesome. But sadly, it won't be coming to the US.
Volkswagen's apprentices created this 389-hp GTI Dark Shine and Golf Variant Biturbo for the GTI-Treffen at Wörthersee this year, following a long line of impressive intern projects.
Volkswagen hits its hot-hatch enthusiast festival in Austria with this enhanced GTI Clubsport concept, splitting the difference between the stock GTI and Golf R to preview an anniversary special.
Automakers are constantly unveiling new concept cars to showcase their brand image and demonstrate where the company is going. But after the concept debuts, and maybe makes the rounds of some local shows, that's pretty much the last we see of it. But what if an automaker could design a concept that it not only showcases at an auto show, but could also let today's video-game generation drive and toy with themselves?
