AutoCar has driven the new Audi TT, and proclaimed it to be a genuine Porsche Cayman S rival.

With a combination of sharpened responses, reduced weight, improved power and the availability of the improved S-Tronic dual-clutch gearbox, the magazine indicates that the four-ringed fashion statement has come good with enthusiasts.

Their conclusion?

There's no question about it: the new TT has taken a huge leap forward in the way it drives. Like the latest RS4, it proves that Ingolstadt's attitude to dynamics has changed out of all recognition compared with the uninspiring Audis of the past decade or more.

We can't wait to get our mitts on one and see for ourselves.
