PASSAT PRICES   AW 9-12, pg 9
  VW has announced a $20,890 base price for its largest passenger
car, the VR-6 equipped 1995 Passat GLX. The figure is 10 percent
lass than a comparable '94 model. The Wagon version starts at $21,320.
  Last year's models did include an $850 sunroof as standard equipment.
  New features on this year's model include dual air bags, a new
waterfall grille, integrated rear spoiler, color-keyed bumpers
and mirror housings, new dual cup holders and a pyrotechnic
seatbelt device that pulls all belts tight 12 milliseconds after a
  The VR6 is the only engine available, but VW says it's considering
a four-cyliner direct injection turbodiesel (Yuk! Ed.) later in the
model year.
  VW expects to sell as many as 30,000 Passats anually, double the
'93 calendar year figure.

WE CAN C4 MILES AND MILES, AW 9-12 pg 14-15

  Porsche's '95 Carrera 4 is here, a remarkable car at a remarkable

 (selected quotes, Ed.) ...we were in a gravel pit... a little half-mile
course marked with cones...like an autocross course...water...loose
loose gravel....pebbles.....the driver revved the engine to 5 grand
and side stepped the clutch. The car bolted forward. It flew around
the track, sideways most of the time...we could hear a slight ticking
as the engine and exhaust system cooled....."what I like best about
this car" "is that it is so controlled under, at, and over the limit.
You onle need make slight steering inputs, not major ones".....
The driver was two-time World Rally Champ Walter Rohrl.....$65,000 US
only $6,000 more than the two-wheel-drive one....."refinement".....
Porsche junked the old four-wheel-drive system which used an
electronic-hydraulic center diff...was too heavy.....old system made
the car a bore to drive....too much understeer.....Sixty in just 5.4
seconds.....one tenth quicker in the 1/4 mile vs 2wd..... the Carrera's
wheel kick back a bit over rough pavement, the CArrera 4 won't.....
Walter Rohrl was right, the car is simply fantastic to drive.....
Carrera or Carrera 4?....tough choice....dry roads near equals.....
everyone can benefit from the handling improvements the four-wheel-
drive car offers...the extra 10 percent on Carrera 4 is money well
