Ever since Volkswagen unveiled the BlueSport concept at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, we’ve heard plenty "to be or not to be" rumors about a possible production version. Now we can finally confirm, without any doubts, that the Volkswagen Group will offer three different versions of this concept. Audi, Porsche, and Volkswagen will each have their own version of the concept with different levels of sportiness and performance, butSkoda and Seat will be left out of the mix.

Starting with Audi, their production version will be inspired by the E-tron Spyder concept and will be offered with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-pot and 2.5-liter five-cylinder units, priced at around $45,000. The Porsche model will take its design cues from the iconic 1953 550 Spyder and will be offered with a twin-turbocharged engine with an output of about 380 HP. It is also believed that the Porsche model will be called the 550 as a tribute to the classic model. Prices will be in the $52K area. The Volkswagen model will, in fact, be the only version taking its design inspiration from the BlueSport concept. It will feature a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine with an output of about 170 HP. This will be the cheapest version with prices starting from around $30K.

The three models will stare the same platform, but their interiors will deliver different levels of luxury by featuring parts - such as instrument panels and dials - that are unique to each model. This type of differentiation was successful with the Q7, the Cayenne, and the Touareg SUVs so Volkswagen is sure to recreate that success with the three roadster models.

More details to come on Volkswagen’s three different production BlueSport Concepts, so stay tuned!

When will really be the market production of this one? Well, I hope that it won’t stay only as a concept vehicle. By the way, it really looks cool on that detailing.

I do hope that this one actually pushes through. The BlueSport concept is really something, so it is rather nice that Volkswagen is now making good use of it. And in three different models too.

Well, it’s kinda cute however, I don’t think the orange color at the back did not match the silver color of the car. It would be better if you’ll just use the same color for the appearance of the car. In that way, it will just look very manly.

At long last, they’re finally putting the Blue Sport into production. Well, it took them quite a long time, but it’s definitely worth the wait. And it’s a good thing that they are releasing three different models too.

I have seen this production among Porsche car and I think it doesn’t have then incredible platform. But well, who will buy a car that has less beauty!
