Work is under way to develop a hotter version of Ingolstadt's TT range, likely to be badged TTS.
Audi TTS coming in 2008 (AUTOMEDIA)
It promises to be a real alternative to the Porsche Cayman when it goes on sale in 2008.
The TTS will use the same 2.0-litre TFSI engine from the Audi S3, but bumped up to about 206kW.
All this grunt will be channeled through Audi's permanent 4WD quattro system and a six-speed manual box, though the DSG dual-clutch system will also be available as an option.
Expect a sporty styling with bespoke wheels, alloy-effect door mirrors, aggressive bumpers, S-batches on the brakes and sill extensions.
Audi will probably unveil the car at the Geneva Motor Show.
