It's no secret that the third generation of the company's design-conscious coupé will be making its debut at Geneva, and to get fans excited, Audi has published development sketches of the new car.
Audi claims that the new car will be 'all-new' and to be sure of it has gone back to the drawing board and taken inspiration from the original car that was launched some 16 years ago.
An overwhelming success from the start, the TT is the car that put Audi back on the map and introduced the company as a carmaker that was as obsessive about design and aesthetics as it is about engineering and performance.
The sketches show that this time around Audi is also drawing inspiration from its flagship supercar, the R8, as much as the original TT's lines and that the public should expect a car with a much more dynamic, performance-focused look, but not one that's so aggressive that it will alienate its current female fans.
However, expect the biggest changes in the cabin. The TT will be the first car to sport Audi's new virtual cockpit, which minimizes distraction and clutter and takes aeronautical design as its inspiration.
The TT will be unveiled in front of the world's motoring press on March 4 and for the public attending the Geneva Motor Show two days later, on March 6.
