From these spy shots it appears that Audi is looking to hook buyers away from the Porsche Cayman.
Likely to be called the TTS, Audi is hoping the car will be an alternative to the Porsche Cayman, packing 280 hp when it goes on sale in 2008 for around $73,000. Currently the Cayman can be had for around $58,900
The TTS will use the same 2.0L TFSI engine from the Audi S3, but will get bumped up to 280 hp, channeled through Audi’s full-time AWD Quattro system and a six-speed manual. The DSG dual-clutch system will also be available as an option.
Expect sporty styling with bespoke wheels, alloy-effect door mirrors, aggressive bumpers, S-batches on the brakes and sill extensions.
