In Zwickau and Wolfsburg, apprentices from #volkswagen are currently making two show cars for the 37th GTI meeting to be held at Lake Wörthersee. The double premiere is due to take place at Maria Wörth in Austria on May 9 and will be watched by many thousands of automobile fans. At the start of the project, the 30 or so young people discussed their ideas and concepts at a "Meeting before the GTI meeting". Discussions focused on technical implementation, especially using CAD and 3-D printer systems. The budding specialists were also interested in digitalization and networking within the vehicle, for example using app control systems they had programmed themselves and a mobile Internet connection.

Each year, tens of thousands of them come to Lake Wörthersee for the legendary GTI meeting. #volkswagen apprentices use this platform to present the unique Golf cars they have developed and made themselves to a wider public.
