    Volkswagen has confirmed production of the Golf VI Cabrio will commence in Osnabrück spring 2011.

    During a visit to Volkswagen's Osnabrück plant Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn updated Lower Saxony’s Minister President and Volkswagen Supervisory Board member David McAllister on preparations for the start of production.

    Announced a few days ago the Osnabrück site, which is the former site of the Karmann holding company, will absorb the technical development and metal units of the insolvent Wilhelm Karmann GmbH. This includes a workforce of over 1,000.

    “Over the decades, some of the most beautiful models in the automobile world have left the assembly line in Osnabrück. We will be carrying on this tradition from 2011 with the new Golf Cabrio,” Winterkorn said during the tour of the site. “The capacities and specialist skills available here are very valuable for our Group. We will be creating a total of 1,800 jobs at Volkswagen Osnabrück by the end of 2011. Osnabrück will therefore remain a high-performance automobile location in our Group alliance going forward.

    I'm very happy at this news, I've been waiting for Golf to go back to producing a cabrio. The Eos was good, but I always would have preferred it if they'd called it a Golf Cabrio.

    Looks like a good car. I'd be interested in seeing what kind of gas mileage that thing gets, it looks so sporty.

    The car company's called Volkswagen. The Golf is one of their models. It's been around for 30 years, and has only gently evolved over that time. I think they should try to radically restyle it, to be honest, but what can you do...?

    The mileage will be pretty good. I'm guessing about 60MPG (roughly).
