    Looks a bit like what the back end of a BMW 1 series should look like after being crossed with the Audi A3...;)


    Nice though, I'm still waiting for someone to really crack the hot hatch/tourer. My favourites are still the Alpine/Renault and the BMW Z3 tourer.

    As a TT owner, this makes me want to throw up. Seriously. They've taken an absolutely beautiful car and uglied it up in the worst possible way.

    Shooting brake? That's a hatchback.

    More to the point, that makes it very much an A3 (same chassis) with different lines.

    "Shooting brake" should be a term reserved for large vehicles of high luxury such as the conversion of this Bentley. A TT is too much a commodity automobile. Though preferably the vehicle should have started life as a coupé.

    backend looks like a golf to me. different lights but still kind of bland.

    i agree, the z3 tourer is one of the nicest looking hatchbacks on the market.

    Do remember though, that they're still making the new TT a coupe. ;)

    This is what a TT should look like:

    Yeah nice couple a years ago .... not that special anymore. A3 is a nice one though!

    Ugh the new TT looks like a Renault .... Nice Ingolstadt! :(

    I liked the TT when it was first released but have gone off it seeing so many yuppies flying about in them.

    I'm not sure about this one though, I suppose it looks ok. Nice interior.

    Hmmm, not so sure that we're actually going to see that from Audi. First, what's "shooting brake?" Thats english not german. The outside concept looks more like a page from Bangle's personal sketch book rather than Audi's own heritage (look at the headlights, taillights, and body creases). And since when do they put the four-ring badge outside of the grill? Looks tacky, like it was glued on by the last guy in the assembly line before it roles on to the streets. The interior looks plasticy and jumbled, a far cry from what they are known for. Compare:

    or this one (taken from the Apple site ;))

    Also, that cool-lookin' flat-bottomed sport wheel won't be available in the US, they're illegal. I know this is a concept, but I want to know the whole story on this one.

    I'm a TT owner myself. ..and this is just a nightmare come true. I've seen many photoshoped TT's in the past year that supposed to be the runner up for the current model but this is by far the ugliest.

    I don't mind the design of the car that much. It's ok for a sporty hatch coupe(or however you want to call this). But PLEASE AUDI do not associate any of this with a TT.

    The BMW M-Coupe it's one of those hate it or love it design. I, myself love it. I have never driven one but it is supposed to be pretty hot.

    The new one looks pretty good. As the german car trolls around here say, we must embrace the line! And the old TT would have none of it. Creases are your friend.

    At the start I wanted a TT but it turned out to be a bit of a tarts car (male/female) by the people that buy these cars (where I live) it looked nice at first now it looks like a dog (BMW'ish)

    [​IMG]

    The last Audi that I owned was this ( without racing colours ) in a nice shade of metallic midnight grey (with neat rear spoiler-factory standard)

    A heavy but fast car (my all time favourite so far)
    Bring back real cars.

    I like this car, and would love it as a replacement for the Audi A3, although I haven't seen the new model A3 photos yet.

    Two things I don't like are the front end and the back, although the back is the major problem. Neither matches the other. I realize that they're not supposed to, but the front end looks a bit radical, while the back is a bit bland.

    I like this Alfa 147 GTA:

    As usual, I shirk the opinions of this group and say that I like it. It reminds me of the latest Mazda 3 5 door, which I like immensely. Having the look plus the Audi mechanicals sounds great.

    like the new grill with the emblem outside ... i actually love it ..
    the back isn't that much different but looks still good

    the weakest part in the design is the interior and the sides perhaps.. sides look too much like BMW (which is a bad thing).. smooth out those lines

    the only problem will be the same as with the alfas: no space for license plate.. so i doubt this baby will ever see the light of day

    and no it doesn't look like a renault :rolleyes:

    heheh, I'm beginning to know what you mean...

    What on earth was I thinking posting such a car on this site, where the usual response to anything automotive is... 'Buy a Honda Civic' :rolleyes: :p :p :p

    Well I like neither. In fact, I only like cars that look exactly like this:

    well... at the risk of being mauled by everyone else on the thread...

    i LOVE the way this new car looks, always thought the old TT looked like a VW bug on roids...

    very good looking auto
