We still only have rumors about the third-generation Audi TT said to be scheduled for launch in late 2014, but based on a report in Car and Driver, we know a tiny bit more about it. The base engine will be the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with direct injection, but horsepower is said to be 220 horsepower – that would make for a nine-hp jump over the current output. The TTS would get an even larger power boost, going from 265 currently to 300 hp. The TT RS would stick with it's 2.5-liter five cylinder, with output increased from 360 to 380 hp. If Audi includes a nice dose of the go-light engineering involved in the TT Ultra Quattro, these horsepower numbers might be even more impressive.

As with the TT concept and first-generation production car, though, it sounds like the brand is concentrating on aesthetics. It's been widely reported that Audi wants to reclaim the juju conjured by the original TT, and while we still don't know what that means outside, CD reports that the interior gets simplified, "futuristic-feeling" styling thanks to instruments served up on a TFT screen. Remember, the first Audi TT had a cockpit that Car magazine dubbed simply, "The Cabin."

About a year after the coupe comes, the Audi TT Roadster will show up and should be joined by the next A5. The news for the next version of the subtly beautiful coupe is the arrival of a plug-in hybrid with torque vectoring via an electric motor for the rear axle. Beyond that is wilder speculation of an A9, which might be called Q9, and which was the four-door-coupe flavor of the month two years ago when it was possibly going to share a platform with the Lamborghini Estoque. According to the CD story, the thinking now is around "a combination of fastback and crossover proportions," a two-fer we've yet to see any carmaker pull off without making us go, "Oh. I see."

      This is challenging for Audi. They are right to focus on aesthetics. The first generation was a huge hit because of its looks. The second generation is a better performer and better looking but it stands out less than its predecessor making it much less distinctive. By improving on the first generation they actually made the second generation less of a hit. This is unfortunate but it's the way things go. If I were Audi I would go with an all new style with this car. No allegiance to prior TTs. No force-fit grill from the rest of the lineup. Just something completely different and distinctive. That's what made the original great.

      I loved the original TT but it had its 15 minutes. Each generation gets farther from the magic pudding. Let it go and come up with something new.

          It's the same platform, power train and basic shape as the Beetle.

          But doesn't come in Manual or Diesel. Might as well just buy a beetle.

        I consider this the modern equivalent of the Karmann Ghia....same platform as a Beetle but with more visual pizazz. Unlike the Ghia, at least some of the TT variants actually delivered on the visual promise of more "sport" than the Beetle.

      car is so poofy. They could move twice as many if it had the more angular look of the recent ur quattro concept. There's a reason it's called a hairdresser's ride.

      I like the TT, always have. But it has the same perception to me as a scooter. . . seems like only women and gays buy them. I don't care if you're a woman or gay--you want a lux coupe and you're probably going to cross-shop the TT. As for me, I opted for the GTI (same architecture as the FWD TT). It has 4 doors, hatch, and a little witchcraft under the hood compliments to APR. But I still like the TT.

        Don't you know you can't say the word gay nowadays, everybody everywhere gets offended.

          People (not just homos) get offended by anything if they're looking to get offended

          Context means everything. It's not that he say gay, it's the insinuation that a car is tainted and off limits because "undesirables" drive them. That's offensive, which was his intent. You can't complain that people get offended *right after saying something offensive.*

      I just hope that since the Golf got lighter, the TT has as well. A more powerful and lighter TT? Win.

      Wait for the 2015 VW Golf R. Same basics, less $ and more testosterone.

        That actually makes a lot of sense. If you think of the Golf R as a cheaper and more practical TT, instead of just an overpriced Golf, it seems like a way better deal!

      Hopefully it starts looking like a mans car, and shakes the reputation of the Beverly Hills strip mall shopper almost always piloted by women.

          A strip mall is a collection of stores across a section or group of clustered shops/boutiques.

      They should come out with something inspired by the old Karmann Ghias. They are both VW owned and it basically is the same demographic as the Karmann. If they could come up with something even close to as nice I think it would sell really well.
