When Audi pulled the covers off its new TT at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show a few weeks ago, we were all instantly in love with its newly shaped body, combination of angles and curves, and its impressive array of powertrain options. It was a relief after waiting on it for what seemed like years., but now we’ve got one more TT to be anxious for: the TT Roadster.
Our rendering artist sent us this masterful sketch of what the new drop-top TT might look like, though it doesn’t take much to imagine what Audi is likely to design. The TT has traditionally used a fabric soft top and we don’t imagine that will change. The two hoops behind the seats will likely return as well. The flat rear deck and strong belt line are two classic TT traits likely to return as well.
The TT Roadster’s powertrain won’t differ from the TT Coupe that debuted at Geneva. The TT currently has three engines in its lineup: a 2.0-liter TDI diesel making 184 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque; a 2.0-liter TFSI gasoline turbo making 230 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque; and a more powerful 2.0-liter TFSI gasoline turbo kicking out 310 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
It’s unlikely the U.S. will see the diesel engine, but the other two will make their way over. We do expect a more powerful TT RS to make its debut sometime soon as well.
