Whenever anyone brings up the Scirocco, we still can’t help but wince a bit at the fact that the United States was snubbed from the car’s second coming. Apparently we’re not alone. According to USA Today, Volkswagen America head honcho Jonathan Browning wouldn’t mind seeing the low-slung three-door on our shores, either. Browning said that while Volkswagen was unable to make a solid business case for bringing the Scirocco to the U.S. market the last time around, he still wants to see the car in our neck of the woods. Unfortunately, we may have to wait a few years before that happens.

Browning said that there were a few other more pressing items on his plate at the moment, including improving his company’s quality and making the dealer experience more tolerable. Those seem like plenty noble goals, but we still wouldn’t mind seeing the ‘Rocco on American soil sooner rather than later. While we love the Golf GTI as much as the next lead-footed American, there’s just something about a Scirocco that flips all the right switches.

We’re waiting, VW.
