Volkswagen will look to bring to market high-performance diesel models under the newly formed R performance division. In an interview with Autoblog, Ulrich Riestenpatt gt. Richter, the man in charge or Vee-Dub R has confirmed as much, telling the outlet that, “The future is diesel and all-wheel-drive.”

And while he didn’t say as much, that means we can more than likely look forward to a diesel Golf R. The notion isn’t as far from reality as it sounds either, with VW already offering a GTD model in Europe – essentially a sporty diesel with extra power and handling capabilities, inspired by the GTI.

In addition Richter says an R version of any model is possible. Does that mean we’ll see a Jetta R, Passat R or Tiguan R? Perhaps. It most certainly is a strong indication that the Beetle R is coming soon.
