    Rumorpile: What’s In Store For The Next Audi TT

    The current Audi TT has been around with us since 2006 and it’s hiding its age very well. That doesn’t mean Audi is hard at work with the next generation TT. Autocar has learned some interesting information dealing with the next generation model.

    Audi officials say the goal of the next TT is to be “more driver orientated” than the current model.

    Audi’s plan to reach this goal factors on many things. One of those factors is a slight weight reduction from the current base car’s mass of 3,150 pounds. The new TT will be built around a inner structure that uses more of aluminium in the bulkheads and floorpan, and the bodyshell will use more aluminium.

    Underpinning the next TT will be Volkswagen’s MQB platform, which will make its debut at next month’s Geneva show under the sheetmetal of the new Audi A3.

    Styling will be more technical according to sources. Also, details like larger fender flares, stronger shoulder lines and the latest version of Audi’s large corporate grille will be featured.

    The current engine lineup of of turbocharged four and five-cylinder engines are expected to return with more power, while front- and all-wheel-drive will continue to be offered.

    The next TT will arrive sometime in 2014, with the droptop following a year later.

    I'd like to see them make it look more like the R8 or the E-tron concepts. More than that I'd like it to perform more like a baby R8.
