When we last checked in with the little bit of speculation there's been on the coming, third-generation Audi TT, rumors said the TT would move upmarket to make MSRP space below for a mid-engined Audi R4. With the R4's future in question, who knows how the TT will play it, but other scuttlebutt says that the TT will be on the MQB platform, will combine first- and second-generation designs and be lighter and more driver oriented.

The snappers at CarPix have encountered a TT mule testing in the snowy north and unfortunately, it doesn't give much more away. The wheelbase has grown – notice the hood shutline is uneven with the front arch, and the arches are said to look wider. The exhaust was described as "more mature," but that could be down to numerous mule-related reasons.

There were hints that we'd see it at last year's Tokyo Auto Show, but obviously that didn't happen. Based on the car in these spy shots, it could be a while yet.
