Proof that Golf R won’t be a 2012

Here you go folks here is the proof that the Golf R won’t be a 2012 model. This is a screen shot of the VW ordering system  showing the car as a 2013 model:

Jetta GLI and Golf R delayed

 

2012 GLI delayed to August due to high demand for Jettas

The Jetta has fallen a victim of its own success. VW cant make enough of them to keep up with demand and while production has ramped up  inventory levels are still at an all time low. Unfortunately for the enthusiast VW has to put priority on its bread and butter models as it struggles to bring inventory levels to  comfortable levels and has put the GLI in the back burner.

All pre sold GLI orders are still sitting in the  order bank and no cars have been built as of today. The GLi is now expected to ship to dealers in August at the earliest.

 

Golf R pushed to January 2012

When searching the VW inventory system today I discovered that the Golf R now shows up as a 2013 model. By law they cant sell a 2013 model until Jan 2nd 2012. So it appears that you guys will have to wait just a tad bit longer.
