Here’s the very latest intel about the next-generation Audi TT. A must read!
Audi will mix design elements of both the current TT and the original when creating the third-generation car, according to insiders close to the project. The aim, they say, is to recapture some of the distinctiveness and impact of the first-generation car.
There’s a feeling in some quarters of Audi that the striking Bauhaus style of the first Audi TT – distinguished by a strongly functional shape largely untroubled by ornamentation – should be revived in the next car, which will make its debut as a coupé in 2014, with a roadster arriving the following year.
The latest version of the TT will be based on the new VW Group MQB platform, whose architecture allows for a shorter front overhang and a longer wheelbase relative to the car’s overall length.
The new TT will have wider tracks, too, but the overall size of the car will be little changed.
