The German based automaker Volkswagen is planning to put its BlueSport model into production, in the nearby future, as an entry-level roadster.
After the Volkswagen engineering boss, Uli Hackenberg, told autocar.co.uk no too long ago that the Volkswagen BlueSport is most likely to miss the production line, because of the sales target set on the model which seems to be just too high, now the same VW official is saying that despite a low sales forecast, the model might actually get the green light for production. Uli Hackenberg said that this “radical” decision was being taken thanks to several new models like the Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT 86 (Scion FR-S).
The Volkswagen official is now seeing that the BlueSport might actually be sold in over 50.000 units every year, the mark needed for production, and if this will occur, an Audi version of the model could arrive within three years. According to the guys at the Evo Magazine, the Volkswagen BlueSport is expected to have a price tag set between GBP25.000 and GBP30.000 at current prices and this will get Porsche into a “dilemma”, to go ahead with its own version or to leave the market to Volkswagen and to its Audi sub-brand.
