The last generation Volkswagen Scirocco coupe didn’t make its way across the ocean to the US, but thanks to hints from VW’s North American CEO, we now have hope that the newest generation model will be offered here in the States.

“That’s a piece of the lineup that I would dearly love to see here,” said CEO of VW Group of America, Jonathan Browning when asked about the newest version of the Scirocco.

The Scirocco coupe was last sold here in 1988, and was only produced until 1992 when it was replaced by the Volkswagen Corrado. When the car was reintroduced in 2008, there was to much risk for Volkswagen to export them to the States thanks to the recession, and the fact that the Scirocco would likely steal sales away from the GTI.

A facelifted Scirocco coupe is expected sometime in 2013, and hopefully when the car is revealed we will find out more about VW’s sales plan.

When speaking with Automotive News, Browning also revealed that there is a chance the diesel powered Volkswagen Alltrack might make its way to North America as well, as it was displayed at the 2012 New York Auto Show strictly to gauge customer reaction in America.
