Basically, it all started as a club show… an event in NY state for some locals who’d banded together to form Club H2O. The club fizzled as clubs do when priorities change, and the remnants were picked up by Jay Shoup. Shoup’s a local to Ocean City, Maryland so you can probably see where this is going.

There’d been a rumor running that Audi will show a TT-based concept car. We theorized that it was likely a Sportback last week, and that much is true. Interestingly though, new pre-release drawings from the Audi Design Team appear to confirm the car will be more in the line of the A7 Sportback than it will Avant-like form we’d run with the story.

1:87 scale cars are tiny. Matcbox/Hotwheels cars are larger in comparison, though in scale detail still goes to the 1:87 since that’s also the same scale as HO model trains. One of our favorite manufacturers is Herpa, the German manufacturer of many things tiny and also an official supplier to the Audi Collection.

For Audi, the cutting edge is a goal derived from tradition. Sportsmanship, performance and driving pleasure elements unite the past, present and future for the brand of the four rings, both on the road and in motor racing. For this reason, Audi celebrates its origins for the 17th rear in a row at the Gran Premio Nuvolari as main sponsor, also choosing the classic car event as a showcase for the Audi TT Nuvolari Limted Edition, a numbered limited series sports coupe and icone of design in the automotive world.

During the presentation at the Audi TT launch last week, Audi’s moderator began a rehearsed Q&A with Ingolstadt’s chief of development Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg by mentioning a “rumored TT-based concept car for Paris”. Given this was no question by a journalist and instead pre-planned by a PR manager, Audi surely grabbed our attention.

As style icons go, the air around cars like the Volkswagen Beetle and Porsche 911 is a heady space… space also occupied by cars like the Audi TT. These automobiles are clearly defined and ardently loved. Redesign them in a less than authentic way and risk watering down something that truly defines a car company. This is what Audi considered as it moved to envision the latest Audi TT coupe. More…

Earlier today we reported on the new TT Illustrated magazine published by Audi to coincide with the launch of the latest third-generation TT range. For enthusiasts, the magazine is a veritable treasure trove of little information. In particular, the story whereby designer Freeman Thomas returns to the studios of the Audi Design Team grabbed us not just for the content, but also for the design drawings shared from Thomas’ original notebooks.

It seems Audi’s been landing awards for its internal corporate magazines quite a bit over the past few years.

Seemingly near the very same time that journalists began to take a first crack at the wheel of the new TT and TTS models, test mules of the TT Roadster were spotted at a Nurburgring test day. The sighting would suggest that the new drop-top version is nearing its auto show debut and sources are telling us that debut will likely be Paris.

On location at Ascari, Audi offered up many displays including technical components and then this static and highly optioned grey Audi TTS coupe.
