Report: Volkswagen’s New Roadster Greenlit For Production

British automotive tabloid AutoExpress is reporting that Volkswagen‘s long awaited two-seat sports car has been approved for production.

Designers have reportedly stayed true to the Bluesport concept that previewed the car at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. The car is expected to weigh in at around 2600 pounds, roughly the same weight as a Mazda MX-5. The roadster will be powered by the familiar 1.4TFSI four-cylinder making 170 horsepower, as well as the 200 horsepower 2.0TFSI from the GTI. Staying true to the Bluesport concept car, the new roadster will also offer a 178 horsepower 2.0L diesel engine. All three choices will be available with a DSG or 6-speed manual gearbox. VW’s new sports car should hit showrooms in mid-2013.
