Does the TT have such a radical design that every car company must attempt to copy it? :disgust:

First off, here is the correct link.

Edit: 413 lb-ft of torque at 1750rpm's? They better put all wheel drive on that sucker cuz there's going to be massive amounts of wheel spin unless you feather the gas.

Edit2: Check out the Z9 convertible. It looks exactly like a TT with BMW's kidney grille.

Maybe it's because the TT looks damn nice?

What the hell?!?!? That doesn't look like a TT. The TT looks like a squashed Volks bug. This Z9 is nice. Love the doors...

Hah, I love it. Looks kinda like a TT, but not really if you think about it.

413ft-lbs of torque at 1750? are you f-ing kidding me? that is NUTS.

Either you're lying, or the car my boss saw near BMW's plant in Greenville, SC (on his way to Atlanta) may have been driven all the way out to California for serious road testing. I haven't kept up with the news on this car, but it looks to me like they're really gonna build it!

I believe BMW has a testing center in California.. maybe Malibu, so it is not out of the question to see unreleased cars driving around. A few M3s were spotted before they were available. And my friend has seen the new Audi A4 at the Camarillo outlets.
