Found on the trademark office, are these patent drawings of the Volkswagen Jetta Coupe, or as the German automaker named the concept version of the car at the Detroit Auto Show in January, the NCC (New Compact Coupe).
Those skimming the photos may notice a couple of changes over the concept model that was motivated by a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain. These include the more production like grille and addition of fog lamps up front, and the visible exhaust tail pipes at the back.
The fact that Volkswagen filed these drawings doesn't guarantee that the company will go ahead and produce what we like to call, the poor-man's Audi A5. However, since Volkswagen has no plans to bring the Scirocco to the States and given that the NCC is more or less a coupe version of the all-new Jetta, we can't see why it shouldn't make it into production. Any thoughts?
