If you’re the sort of person who follows spyshots because he wants to know about future cars, this post will probably feel like a scene from The Twilight Zone series. In just a few days, Volkswagen will reveal the seventh-generation Golf at a private event. The car will enter production in November, but they are still testing a brand new, never before seen version of the sixth-gen Golf.
Yes, it’s the Golf R Convertible, built by popular demand after a concept previewing it at last year’s Worthersee got excellent reactions from the GTI crowd. And even though it’s going to be old, this will be the fastest VW convertible ever, thanks to a 270 PS (in Europe) 2.0-liter turbo engine.

And yet, just today, we showed you the prototype for the brand new Golf R (Mk VII). Are the two cars going to coexist or will they just pull the drop-top off the market soon?

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
