2015 Audi TT Mule Spied at the Nurburgring

The next generation of Audi’s TT sports coupe was just spied testing at the Nurburgring.

Expected late in 2014 as a 2015 model, the car will move to Volkswagen’s new modular MQB architecture. Details about the car have been scarce, but AutoGuide’s spy photographer spotted it being benchmarked against the BMW Z4, Mercedes SLK and Peugeot RC-Z. Currently, the TT uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to make 211 hp while the TTS makes 265. The less powerful version is expected to climb to 220 hp, while it remains in question if Audi will tweak the TTS.

Audi stopped selling the even hotter TT-RS for the 2014 model year. That car uses a force-fed five cylinder to make 360 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque, which anyone who has driven the car will probably agree is more than enough to make it into a tiny rocket ship. Keep your fingers crossed that the company sees fit to revive it for the coming generation.

Expect the next generation to also be offered with front-wheel drive for base models with the company’ signature quattro all-wheel drive offered as well.
