First introduced in the mid-1970s, the Volkswagen Rabbit was engineered as a version of the manufacturer’s European Golf. The Golf was Volkswagen’s attempt to save itself. Its signature Beetle was on life support and so was the company. Fortunately, they had almost absently acquired the maker of the Audi a decade earlier. This gave them access to a design of front wheel drive and water cooled engines that they used to engineer a fresh and innovative generation of Volkswagens. On one side of the world, it started with the Golf. On this side, it was the Rabbit.
The Rabbit GTI was another iteration of a European Golf. It hit the market in 1983, assembled at the manufacturer’s Pennsylvania plant. It felt like a DIY project, with parts culled from producers in Canada, Mexico, Germany and North America. The design used the same the A1 body and Mk1 chassis as the Golf GTI. Yet it had its own distinctions. A front end squared styling, leatherette and red or blue felt trim, a unique snowflake design alloy wheels, wraparound blinkers, and a four cylinder, JH 1.0 liter engine powered by unleaded petroleum.
