For #fotoshopfriday we figured we'd take a stab at the next-generation TT coupe. We've done four renders, mildly changing proportions and adding a few more TT cues to the quattro Concept and the the e-tron Detroit concept. See more HERE: http://fourtitude.com/news/audi-rumo...d-in-drawings/
Very nice. Render 1 (3) is better. Like the smooth, clean hood. The scoop is drawing it too close to a ... Camero,
One (3) has the better low-cut neck line providing better road view (and looks)
Can't wait to enjoy the transformation.

Nice renders but i miss the TT-ness in them.
Wolgang Egger stated that the TT 3 will get sharper lines along the the line of the TT Mk1.
To cal it a TT it needs:
a cupola shape roof line.
Pronounce wheel arches.
Wheel arche cutout bonnet.
TT style light clusters.
Nobody's Tomorrow is Guaranteed.
Please no hood scoop! I don't care if it is small.....doesn't do anything for the looks of a car. And keep the retractable wing. The back end looks cleaner without. Those who want can get the bolt on if they need a handle back there or want to cut down on a few pounds. Rendering in post 3 is the best so far, but let's not get to angular...don't want it looking to American.
Finally some Mk3 talk. I am new to the forum and have this car in my sights.
Current car 08 BMW 335i coupe/sports/6mt.
Looking forward to the:
1. Audi TT Mk3
2. BMW 2 series coupe
3. redesigned Nissan Z
Hopefully all will be at the 2014 Detriot Motor Show.
I love the photoshops.
Wow, that's a pretty negative view considering Audi is making some of the most amazing cars it has ever done. I love the ur quattro and the Sport, but the days of left foot braking and throttle by cable are over... fortunately so are the days of bad plastics and such. The R8, the new S-cars, the A1 quattro, RS range, etc.... are all very impressive.
As for the quattro Concept, I do know that they did not want to go retro in any way. They wanted something modern that captured the same spirit. In that regard I believe it has been almost universally praised. I've driven the car and I've driven a Sport quattro. Both are amazing cars, but I'd take a quattro Concept.

Here's a link to a quick analysis of the design changes from Mk I to Mk II: http://www.carbodydesign.com/archive...udi-tt-design/
The Mk I had a rounded 1930's Auto Union Formula 1 vibe which became more angular in the current generation and looks to become even more so in the Mk III. The 1980's original quattro rally car certainly had angular elements for it's day and in my opinion shared nothing with the Mk I.
I personally think all of the design sketches have been stunning and am only afraid that the new TT will interfere with the love affair I am still having with my Mk II.
"We think that improving the original design was an impossible task, since the car was already perfect in its form."
"This way, the TT looks more integrated in the current model range."
Personally I still love the design of the mk1 and it was great to own both at the same time to be able to compare them. I never really warmed to the looks of the mk2 until the S and RS models improved upon the original mk2 front end which always seemed a bit boring (and don't get me wrong, the front of the mk1 was the worst angle as well).
I'm hoping the mk3 does capture some of the e-tron and quattro concept design language as its just too good to never go into production.
1. Granted that the new design treatments don't recapitulate the original TT, how anyone can describe them as boring is beyond me.Originally Posted by R5T
2. If current sales figures are any indication, the notion that the TT will ever be a car for the "masses" is really quite beyond credibility.
I'd say we're lucky that Audi is even considering giving us a Mk 3 sports coupe option rather than just saying "GTI or Cayman - your choice."
If Audi once again aims for a TT that is much more distinct from the rest of the model line, and I think the above photoshops are, then I think that would be a good direction. Let the TT be a design icon again instead of blending in with the rest of the lineup. It should be the forefront of the Audi design language instead of the R8.
Audi TT vs the 2 series coupe is what I am thinking of.
