Warning – The 2015 Audi TT is not the new TT Audi promised

Audi has updated the new TT and released details on the car, but is it NOT the 2015 model which has also just been announced, but rather a 2016 model.

The 2015 Audi TT and TTS models were revealed this week. Despite an earlier press release from Audi commenting on the cars, and despite the fact that the truly new TT and TTS have been shown at the Geneva auto show, which is now over, the 2015 is a holdover model by Audi. Just a quick reality check here, it is March of 2014. The cars that are now going on sale are 2015s, and Audi is promoting a new TT which must be a 2016. Could Audi make this a little more confusing?

The current Audi 2014/2015 TT is a sporty coupe and the base new 2.0 liter turbocharged engine with 211 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The new (2016?) car will be lighter, have new engine options, and be changed in many good ways. We’d love to tell you about them, but why bother? Audi is now just releasing the new model year cars (it sent out a press release today announcing them).

Looks like a lil' tubby.. Reminiscent of a bi-gone era Porsche 356 speedster. Too bad it doesn't have the performance to back up the resemblance. In person I find the TT to be "curious" looking at best. How does it perform? Couldn't tell you . At 6'5" I can't sit in one. It's one of those mystery designs targeting compact type " A" personalities.
