The Audi TT will be replaced

Audi confirmed that they killed the TT but a replacement is not yet discarded by the German brand.

The sports car segment comes (once again) to lose an old friend: the Audi TT. This was confirmed by Bram Schot, president of the House of Representatives at the annual meeting of the brand. Fortunately, the sports car will be replaced by another type of “emotional” model with a similar price range, with one difference: the mechanics provided for this future model will be electric, unlike the three engines offered on this side of the Atlantic.

Launched at the end of the last century, the coupé based on the platform of the Volkswagen Golf has marked the last two decades for its timeless design, but also for its increased performance. Over the years, the manufacturer has offered the TT in coupe and cabriolet form, in addition to adding a V6 engine, several 4-cylinder turbo engines and even the legendary 5-cylinder turbo aboard the TT-RS.

But, as is often the case with sports cars, sales of the model are in free fall in recent years. What’s more, Audi is clearly turning towards an electric future and the TT is simply no longer part of the brand’s short-term plans. The manager has even mentioned the R8 in its reflection, although no decision on the future of the exotic car has yet been taken.

As for the replacement of the TT, the manufacturer remains evasive on what awaits the public, but it is allowed to believe that the architecture of the Volkswagen ID3 could possibly be used by the four rings division for the development of this upcoming sports model. We will see in a few years, the priority of the brand which is, of course, to accelerate the electrification of its range, especially large-scale models, which is not the case of the future TT – let’s call it so for the moment – electric!
