This one could take sales away from the fake SLC. Love the cockpit very minimized and simple looking.




Most luxury roadsters are related to a practical, rear-wheel-drive sports sedan, but Audi prefers to march to a different drummer.

Since its inception in 1998, the Audi TT has been based not on the A4, but on the Volkswagen Golf. The original TT was the product of Audi’s best and brightest and it not only blew minds at its debut for its design, it was a hoot to drive as well.


The second generation of the TT on the other hand, failed to impress. It’s not that it was a bad car, it just didn’t excite me like the first generation did. The handling was good, but BMW’s Z4 and Mercedes’ SLK were more fun. The exterior was bolder and meaner than the original, but the interior was too “VW Golf” for the price tag. Every time I sat in one I would say to myself, “Something is missing.”

As luck would have it, Audi’s engineers were also searching for that “something.” And they found it.

I too found the old TT a bit underwhelming, and it does sound like Audi has addressed these concerns, but I still wouldn't have a rag top over a hardtop convertible.

Not really into TT's.
Test drove a TTS before buying my old SLK, was all too mass-market feel and just didn't have the same character as the SLK. It was fast and handled decently (unless you hit the limits of the quattro and end up understeering into a tree) but just didn't cut that "special car" feeling the SLK had.

I sat in the new TT and having the MMI integrated into the Speedo area is just a big no no. A huge plus of a central 'console' is that the passenger can deal with music etc etc... meh.. not for me

Oh, for me, it costs more to insure a TT than my Porsche???? What!?!

Exactly my feelings. Drove a 3.2 V6 and a TTS. Neither of them felt fun. I can see why they're so popular with the mass market, but I wouldn't recommend them to people who want a really fun (practical) 2 seater roadster.

Remember soft tops are making a comeback BMW got away with the steely on some models. A Soft top reminds me of a Hair Piece for men easy on easy off.:grin:







but I do like the lay out of the dash kinda old school with all them useless electronics hidden but there when your are lost.
