But is all about the future.
Audi has built some brilliant sports cars over the years and continues to do so with the gorgeous Audi R8 and iconic Audi TT. The Audi TT has been around in one shape or another since 1998 and is currently in its third generation. Audi has no plans of ending the life of the TT, and in fact, is continuously updating this curvy sports car. Often thought of as a hairdresser's car, the TT has proven itself time and again to be a highly capable sports car, and first-generation models, inspired by the Bauhaus school of design, are starting to pick up in value. One TT fan has now come up with a stunning design for what the TT could look like in the future, and it is clearly inspired by the first-generation machine.
One glance at these stunning renders and it becomes apparent that the 'Audi NEXT TT' as designer doinnext_cong calls it, has been heavily inspired by the original TT, but also takes some notes from Audi's latest electric vehicles. The combination is simply gorgeous. The front end of this reimagined TT is more curved than the original, and features a minimalist face that does away with a traditional grille (this could hint at an electric powertrain). The T-shaped LED headlights are an ingenious touch that ties the face of the car together perfectly.
The side profile highlights the wide-body design, and the classic asterisk-shaped wheels are another clear nod to the Mk1. Sitting above the massively flared wheel arches is a pair of old school mirrors balanced on thin stalks, and a fighter jet-like panoramic cockpit with black pillars integrating seamlessly into the glass surround. The rear end is a masterpiece of minimalist design with its integrated LED taillights and slight duck-lip spoiler tying things together with extraordinary finesse. There's a lot here that Audi can take into consideration for future designs. Job well done.
