I cannot help but think that the TT's styling theme currently is not as compelling as the original and may be played out much like VW's New New Beetle is a played out variation of the New Beetle. Now if Audi could recapture some of the Bauhaus/Machine Age impact of the original, there might be a reason for a new TT. Maybe it's time to ditch the TT in favor of a plug-in hybrid version of the Etron.

That would address the current TT's styling deficit

Never go to happen, there is no business case for it.

The best you can hope for is this.

The Quattro's styling could easily be grafted onto the TT. The first gen TT was iconic, but the 2nd was Camry dull. Using the Quattro's styling would be a no brainer.

I think calling the second generation TT "Camry dull" is a huge overstatement. I still find it quite striking. It may not be as pure as the first one but it's still a very unique and attractive vehicle. It's extremely well detailed.

To each his own of course, but it hides in traffic where the previous one stood out. The previous one looked like an angry machine, this one just looks like a car. It was definitely not one of Audi's better attempts. It wouldn't surprise me if the A5 sells better for a similar price given that it is so much better looking.
