Not ones to rest on their collective laurels, Audi is working on the 3rd-gen 2015 Audi TT and it will be based on parent company VW’s MQB platform. The new architecture will lower the curb weight significantly, helping to improve the all-important but often-ignored power-to-weight ratio. And we can’t applaud Audi enough—the current TT weighs in at a portly 3,175 pounds.
Horsepower will check in at 220 horsepower from Audi’s tried & true 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo. The new TT will go head-to-head with the 2014 BMW Z4, 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK and current king of the canyon, the sublime 2014 Porsche Boxster.
Pricing will come in at $46,000 and will be on sale around November of this year.
