As we inch closer to an expected Geneva debut for the next-generation Audi TT, our latest round of spy photos are starting to give us an even better look at Audi's latest sports car. This time out, we're getting more details on the car's head and taillights.

It's safe to say that the new headlight design will not incorporate the twin rally lights we see mounted on the next TT's grille, but our spy photos do show off the wide, angular new lights in even greater detail than previous photos. The rear lights, meanwhile, look like they'll retain a similar shape to what's seen on the current car, while new LED details lend a degree of freshness to the look.

As we mentioned, we're predicting Audi will debut the next TT at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show in March. We expect, though, to have more on the car before that time. Stay tuned.

      It looks like it will be another TT with an interior that feels like a dark cavern. The belt line is higher than ever.

        So you can see the interior from just these pictures alone? By the way, that beltline is the same as it's always been.

          @ Aaron N The entire Audi TT interior was already shown to the public at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, so there's really no mystery to what it will look like. Also, yes, that belt line is retarded high too.

          That wasn't the entire interior. That was a mock-up, along with the showing of their new technology.

          the belt line is exactly where it was on both generations before.

        This "dark cavern" is called good design. Unless you'd rather sit in a cartoon palace?

      Same lines... nothing innovative. Would be nice if it had a little R8 DNA in it...

        The TT is a tough car to revolutionize since it's characterized by it's shape. We'll never see more than evolutionary style changes.

        Does anything else on the road look like a TT in the US? No. Pretty innovative.

      It would be nice to see it come with a manual again. You can't get the current generation with the DSG. They need to up the sport quotient of the next TT since the A5 seems to be the more direct competitor to the 4 Series.

        It does need Manual again, it breaks my heart the only one with Manual lately was the RS and that's obviously gone If they make a TT-S with Manual, I'll gladly pay the premium

        Good point. The first gen was all about style points plus a relatively unique (at the time) opportunity to get a sporty AWD coupe. The second gen is a better car in nearly every respect but it is less exciting because the design is more mainstream and there are other opportunities to get in a sporty AWD coupe (including the very appealing A5/S5 on the other side of the showroom). Frankly, I'm not sure where the TT goes from here. From the spy shots it looks like the design gets even less distinctive. And it's not going to offer anything with the powertrain that can't be found elsewhere. I'm afraid the TT went fairly quickly from a car everybody was interested in to a car few people even think about.

          They need a TT-S with manual and a suspension tuned for sporty driving. Lower the price a pinch, offer a special edition (roll bar/cage, rear seat delete, light weight bucket seats, maybe extra power and better gearing, ect..) and aim to make it competitive (instead of stylish). Just my two cents

      So, I keep hearing about "Audi's all-new design language" and how each model will have distinct, dynamic styling. Well, where is this? The new A3 is not much different than the current models. The spy shots of the new Q7 don't appear to be setting any new trends. These spy shots show more angular front-end but still the same profile as before. I recall Audi themselves stating that the redesign of the TT would bring it back to the excitement of the original….huh? What happened? All I see are revised front fascias with the same old body styles. The new S-Class and C-Class from Mercedes are taking a more radical departure from their previous models than anything new from Audi.

      once a poof mobile always a poof mobile apparently. Wtf, why would they squander it on the same old ugly design. What happened to the concept, i just don't get this company, potential for a block buster and they come up with this

      If its available with AWD & Manual, I'm definitely putting a reserve down at my local Audi dealer. Always wanted a Mk2 with manual, loved how my 225 was and would gladly put deposits down for a 3 with stick and awd

      I'm a bit confused by the TT. It's a sports car, so by definition it's relegated to "second car" status, unless you are single and never need to carry anything bigger than a backpack. But it's AWD, presumably for all-weather capability. However, if there's a snowstorm, you don't want to be in your sports car with 4 inches of ground clearance, you want to be in a pickup/SUV/crossover/wagon/etc with some ground clearance. If you are going to have two cars anyway, a RWD sports car+ an AWD pickup/SUV/crossover/wagon/etc makes the most sense. The best part of being married to a non-car person, is that you can make them buy a boring AWD crossover, then your commuting vehicle can be the sports car. And just carpool when it snows.

        Well I'm single, have a TT-RS as a daily driver and find it quite practical. Actually it is the most practical car in its segment which is why I bought it. Being a hatchback with fold down seats, I found I can fit quite a lot in it including a 46" desk I purchased recently. People no, but items, hell yeah. Also it has higher ground clearance than a Z4, SLK, Cayman, Evora, CTS-V. It is a bit boring in the design category but it goes like stink.

          @Phontsolo I bought it because it was the best bang for the buck for what I wanted at the time. It doesn't look bad by any means, but it hardly stands out from a crowd. I don't baby it and drive the hell out of it since I've upgraded it with a stage 2 tune from APR. In the performance department it does put a smile on my face and that is why I bought it.

          I don't find it boring at all. It's good, clean design. Why'd you buy it if you find it's looks "boring"?

          Good info. The TT in general seems to hold it's value pretty well. Leads me to believe those who own them like them.

        Amen brother, says this Miata driver with a spouse who drives a Subaru Legacy wagon. Although don't discount the entertainment value of RWD with a bit of snow on the ground!

        The GT-R has AWD as well. Obviously its rather for traction. You get much quicker 0-60 times. Whether it's as much fun that's different aspect but certainly lot more forgiving to drive in rain and slippery conditions (not sudden oversteer). The cargo space is actually not that bad since it's a liftback (13.1 cu ft and 24 with seats down). With winter tires I've seen R8 doing really well in snow (granted if not more than few inches of snow but few cars will do well in those conditions).
