A sports car developed by German automaker Volkswagen and built by Karmann in Osnabrück, Germany, between 1 September 1988 and 31 July 1995. In 1990, the Corrado went on sale in the United States. Originally conceived as a possible successor to the Porsche 944, the Corrado is a three-door hatchback coupé with a 2+2 seating layout. The car’s floor pan is based on the A2 platform (i.e. MK2 Golf/Jetta) and with the exception of VR6 models, all versions utilize the subframes, suspension, steering and braking components from the A2 model range. The VR6 utilizes suspension components from the A3 model range, including the rear axle assembly and some parts of the A3′s ‘plus’ type front axle assembly. The subsequent wider front wheel-track of the Corrado VR6 necessitated the fitting of new front wings with wider wheel arches and liners along with a new front bumper assembly. Together with a new raised-style bonnet to accommodate the VR6 engine, these body improvements were carried across the model range..
