The former convertible versions were not real VWs. Anyway, they did not develop at VW in Wolfsburg, not even in Brussels or otherwise in a VW plant. Just like for example the VW-Porsche and of course the types 34. On the roll bar of the 1993 convertibles then stood 'Karmann' together with the emblem. So the VW plant is currently making efforts for the rebirth of the Karmann factories.
It is produced so in the same plant. It looks good, for it was just not cut out only from the sedan, but also changed, for example by a flatter windshield. Closed it looks a little like its predecessor, still open is the difference by the lack of roll bar enormously. It is now partly replaced by two square bars, which pop out in case of imminent rollover. One cannot replace the upper pivot point of the safety belts that come now from the lower side cover.
