Work is under way to develop a hotter version of Ingolstadt's sports coupe, likely to be badged TTS. It promises to be a real alternative to the Porsche Cayman when it goes on sale in 2008 for around 50 000 Euros. The TTS will use the same 2.0-litre TFSI engine from the Audi S3, but bumped up to 280 bhp. All this grunt will be channelled 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.
