It's no big surprise that Audi is working on a new TT. It's been rumored for a while now, and the current model has been on the market since 2006, making it seven years old. But after seeing only some test mules wearing the existing model's sheetmetal, this is the first glimpse we've gotten at what Audi has in store for it's third-gen TT.

Not that we can see all that much with all the camouflage, mind you, but that's still more than we've seen until now. Spied on public roads being benchmarked against the Mercedes-Benz SLK and BMW Z4, the upcoming new TT is still unmistakably a TT, but looks poised to adopt more contemporary styling in keeping with Audi's latest design language, including a larger grille aperture and more squared-off headlights.

The whole thing looks a bit more like a mini-R8, which would make sense if Audi has called off plans for an R4 sports car to slot into the lineup as well. Last we heard, the new TT would arrive late in 2014, when you can bet we'll read all about slightly more powerful but significantly more frugal engines and a raft of new technologies.

      I like this car. It's different, unique styling, awd. I'm not a turbo fan though. The last one I drove had turbo lag. Still like the car & this gen will be better.

      Holy tumblehome Batman, the side of that greenhouse has some serious rake. I can't imagine them squishing it anymore than that; we're entering Camaro levels of Pillbox-ness here.

      Seems like the roof has been lowered some and the windshield has a steeper slope. Both of which lead to more sports car oriented proportions.

      I think it looks more A5 than R8, but either way its unmistakably Audi under the camo.

      in the side profile one can clearly see, the front and backside fenders are still fake. wonder how those are gonna look like. i hop for more curvy lines as on the latest concepts or the A5.

      Again, car for posers and metrosexuals. I have yet to see a true gearhead owning a TT. This is basicly a Golf GTI with coupelike body and a lot less room.

        I hate comments like yours. It truly shows that you are indeed NOT a car enthusiast. APR has done some pretty crazy things with this car, and as a 6' tall 200lb guy, I would have no problem driving this car. Image issues = your own personal insecurities. Let me guess, guys only buy Porsche because of a midlife crises? Or anyone driving a Mustang is a redneck? Any other idiotic stereotypes you car to share with us?

          I've driven 3 tuner versions of the current TT and this car car has some serious potential . As a serious car guy who has driven everything I take serious offense to ignorant comments from posers .

        The TT-RS is an absolute beast. I'd have no problems driving it.

      so much better than the Golf/Jetta this car is based on. Though 370z beats this hands down.

        don't think this is based on any Golf/Jetta. If the design of this car started even before the Golf/Jetta rolled out, how could it be based on that? What is the common design is the platform.

        The Jetta is based on a totally different platform. But I should have stopped telling you these things long time ago.

          So you essentially showed that the AWD-Turbo car making the same power as a 2WD-NA car is much faster and has a better powerband. So you're now starting to agree with me regarding the Evo then? Or do you just love AWD-Turbo when it's not a Mitsu....

      Wow, it looks like a Gen1 Scion tC with small headlights!

        Damn you, I was about to say how much more I liked the new roof line, but then you went and you had to point out the tC-esque air intakes! I can't un-see that! Thanks for nothing, FutureDoc!
