The return of the R32?

Do you guys think that VW will ever bring back the R32? Or maybe even a 3.4/6L in an R??

I thought the VR6 was near the end of it's life?

I hope not. I truly don't understand the hype, they were slow and heavy. Cool that they have awd but it's not worth the trade off. Cost's a ton of money to make them fast.

It only has a chance if smaller displacement and turbocharged.

In Europe the trend seems to be towards smaller displacement - higher output, and or hybrid high output.

In the US as well, a number of manufacturers have gravitated toward 4cyl turbo models to meet federal mileage mandates and still provide the power customers want.

With the characteristics and tunability of the new EA888 and the trend toward hybrid and full electric, there's no chance at all. They'll put a 2.5T in a Golf before another VR6.

People have been slathering over a straight-5 2.5T in the R model for years. But I don't see it happening with the trend towards simplifying and cost cutting. Man it could sound sweet though.

Swaps don't count. My point was that the 2.5T is an Audi-only engine, and is reserved for RS cars. In other words, it'll never be in a VW, and that's still more likely than another VR6-powered Golf.
