Volkswagen Bus on 2014 Detroit Auto Show2014 Detroit Auto Show will be held on January 13, so let's prepare to go there.
Who knows we see a new Volkswagen Bus for 2014, hmm... still not sure...
Let's back to remember of the past
Detroit Auto Show is the big event in US is an annual auto show held in Detroit, Michigan at Cobo Center, usually in January. It is among the largest auto shows in North America and is very important event for all car manufacturers worldwide to introduce their products to North America market especially in US. Similarly with Volkswagen, Detroit Auto Show carry a historical of the Volkswagen Bus / Microbus / Transporter.., Why...?
2001 Detroit Auto Show, for first time Volkswagen show off a real VW Microbus concept car, also presented other Microbus configurations on miniature scale model, such as the pop-up camper top and was also a pickup, double cab. During the decade after event, the concept never to produced.
Volkswagen Bus Enthusiast's still waiting...hmmm not really..., Because T2 transporter still produced in Brazil and exported to europe, more detail please read this.
And then on 2011, the next decade period, Volkswagen show off Bulli concept car on Geneva Auto show, it's the smaller of microbus. Volkswagen confirm this a new microbus for 2014. Hmmm..., is that true? No have valid answer about this, still wait and see.
Beautiful Vintage Microbus, are not replaceable

So we've see, more than a decade, Volkswagen has the desire to revive the microbus, and twice with very different design for each microbus in 2001 and 2011.
But you know..., What's this all about? It's just a research market for Volkswagen, it's my personal opinion.
Let's be positive, on Septeber 2013 Volkswagen closed the Brazilian T2 Transporter production, and release 600's VW Kombi last edition, more detail please read this.
Maybe this a real purpose marketing set up for new Bulli 2014. Maybe yes... Maybe no..., but real issue is new safety regulations had stop the Bus journey.
For the truth... let's come to the event, maybe we got the answer about Newly Volkswagen Bus on 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
