    Default What does GTI stand for

    At the risk of sounding really stupid, WTF! Does GTI stand for? I always thought it was Golf Turbo Injected. I have never asked at the dealership. Anyone know?

    Thought I'd do you a solid and google this one, and I stumbled across the funniest thing ever... from http://www.urbandictionary.com :

    1. GTI
    Volkswagen's sexy ass, high performance hatchback. The ricers' worst nightmare. Stands for "Grand Touring Injection," but also can stand for "Get Turbo, Idiot" as you whiz by a Honda Civic.
    Mah GTI is bettah than yo rice bowl on fo wheels, foo!

    Other searches I have found state that it stands for "Gran Touring Injection" or "Grand Touring Injection" (Italian)

    Gran Turismo Iniezione (Italian) = A Fuel Injected GT, first used on the 1961 Maserati 3500 GTI. In other words, a grand touring sports car with fuel injection which was a lot less common at one time than it is today
