This Is How Volkswagen Can Make Us Love Them Again

Concepts

We're still a bit annoyed, VW.

In the wake of the Dieselgate scandal, Volkswagen has made some big changes to regain customer confidence and position itself at the forefront of the electric car revolution. Its range of I.D. concepts, most notably the I.D. Buzz that will revive the microbus for the 21st century, and the recently unveiled Sedric concept demonstrate the German carmaker is on a mission to rebrand itself. But another way VW could help us forget about its oil-burning fraud is to build some sexy sports cars.

The new Arteon Gran Turismo was a great start, but these renderings of a track-focused sports car by South Korean industrial and automotive designer, Soyeon Kim, show that VW could and probably should push the envelope a bit further. The rendering artist envisions a VW for the year 2023, a two-seater track weapon with unique styling coupled with design cues from modern machines. The aggressive front end, for example, sports the horizontal spoked grille from the Golf and Jetta. Slim headlights are similar to those found on the aforementioned ID concepts, while aerodynamic flourishes include a front diffuser, aerodynamic wing that separates the cabin, and an air vent behind the front wheels.
