Compare Photos: Did WRCB reveal the 2012 Passat in August?
Photo obtained by WRCB- August 2010
Photo released by VW- January 2011
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Volkswagen unveiled the 2012 Passat, made in Chattanooga, to the world on Sunday and Monday. But photo comparisons now confirm that WRCB and our partners at the Times Free Press first unveiled Chattanooga's car in August.
The photos on the left show the spy photos obtained by WRCB this summer as Volkswagen tested the car in the hot Majave Desert. It also shows the official VW photos released in January.
Understandably, VW had no comment when WRCB obtained photos in August and again in November.
These were the first photographs to surface of the NMS wearing its real body. Earlier photos showed the NMS with a demonstration body, designed to be used while testing the mechanics of the car.
