Volkswagen Scirocco ends production after 43 years
Volkswagen has officially pulled the plug on the Scirocco nameplate after more than 40 years. The company's German consumer website says "The Scirocco can no longer be ordered with individual equipment. You'll have to settle for the last pickings of the pre-produced stock
The Scirocco, designed by Italian car designer and Automotive Hall of Fame member Georgette Giugiaro, made its debut back in 1974 as a kind of replacement for the Karmann Ghia, VW's second model after the iconic Beetle. The second generation arrived in 1981 and lasted until 1992, when the nameplate was discontinued and replaced by the Corrado. The Scirocco name wouldn't resurface until the Iroc concept in 2006, which eventually morphed back into the third-generation Scirocco for the 2009 model year and beyond. (SOURCE: AUTOBLOG)
