On Friday, we reported that Volkswagen is closer to a decision whether or not to produce its eco-performance BlueSport roadster. We’re excited, but what do you think?
The BlueSport, which will feature most of VW’s latest green-friendly technological advancements, will give the brand a much-needed edge, in the form of a small roadster. Stop/start technology and regenerative braking work will work with a hot turbocharged engine — we’re not sure yet whether it’s going to be diesel or gas-powered — for an estimated 55 mpg.With a base price estimated to be under $30,000, it will be able to compete with the likes of the Mazda Miata, or even hotter convertibles. What’s not to like?
The BlueSport roadster joins a growing list of exciting, green sports cars, like the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder.
