It's the middle of the weekend and already we're caught in the throes of the coming week's 2010 Detroit Auto Show. The latest leaked tidbit is a stylized sketch that's believed to be the upcoming Volkswagen Jetta Coupe, or New Compact Coupe.

The NCC is expected to be a concept in near-production form, previewing the final Jetta Coupe. A Jetta Coupe might offer those still vainly longing for the Scirocco a chance at something similar, as the general outline in the sketch is a sleek, well-proportioned coupe with the now-familiar new VW front end. Like the Passat CC, the NCC is thought to be designed with the U.S. market in mind.

Based on the Jetta sedan, the NCC is expected to feature a small four-cylinder/electric hybrid powertrain that itself previews upcoming hybrids from VW.

We'll be covering the 2010 Detroit Auto Show live from the show floor, so stay tuned for the latest news and photos of the Jetta Coupe as it happens.
