Audi Might Be Bringing a Smaller Sportscar, Below the TT

If you ever wondered what it would be like to drive an Audi sports car smaller than the TT, we’re about to tell that you might be getting the chance as the German automaker is considering a baby Audi sports car.

According to the guys from caradvice, the famous automobile company seems to be considering a downsized sibling to the third generation of the TT that enchanted fans at the Geneva Auto Show.

Apparently, this new vehicle could be based on the next-generation Volkswagen Polo, Audi chief technical officer Dr Ulrich Hackenberg saying “At Audi we have the A1 which is very sporty… we have just launched S1 as a four-wheel drive. I think something more sporty is possible to run in the zero [vehicle size] segment. I can imagine with successor [to A1] we are doing something even more sporty.”

At the moment, the most sporty car on the MQB (architecture) is the Audi TT, but the company also has MQBZero-next-generation Polo. Still, it seems that there is room for a sports car on a smaller platform. Who knows, we could be seeing something new in the future. Whatever might be the case, we’re excited to see what’s going to happen as Audi also has room to fill the gap between the TT and The R8 super car. In this case, if a production version of the Sport Quattro concept unveiled at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show would happen, Dr Hackenberg said that the company will most likely advertise it as GT.
