Contents: Finding a successor to the Beetle Brief outline of Beetle/VW success determination of Nordhoff s successors to change course. Was VW s near downfall the Beetle s fault, or simply bad management? A new legend is born The Golf as it was launched in 1974 the reaction The world s first hot hatch The story behind and the details of the first GTI Golf Two From 16valves to Rallye More valves and more oomph. Towards the end of the Mk Two s reign really hot metal was emerging from Wolfsburg. Golf Three Is the Jury still out? Had VW begun to lose the plot with the heavier more family orientated Sunday afternoon driver Mk Three? Was the 2-litre GTI sluggish and was the VR6 the answer? Golf Four From opulence to the diesel revolution Luxury at the expense of performance perhaps, but don t forget the diesel speed revolution and those incredible high flyers above the basic GTI! Golf Five Full Circle VW aren t the only ones suggesting that with the Mark Five the GTI has that something special, just like the Mk One Golfs with boots and sporty bodies Ventos and Boras can shift or be shifted like a GTI; they just haven t had the same appeal in Europe. Across in the States, the retention of the Jetta name indicates the popularity of the booted concept and the dislike of hatches, hot or not! With sporty bodies, why are the Scirocco and the Corrado distant memories? 9) Rabbit, Rabbit the US story How the Rabbit and the Golf as successors to the Beetle nearly brought VW of America to its knees and why a Golf with a retro body was its saviour. (Chapter order subject to change perhaps an update on the USA situation is incorporated into each model chapter Jetta Vento Bora could go the same way.)
