what's funny is that when I first saw it on the 2017 718 , it immediately brought to mind the branding emblem location and orientation ....of the 2013 Dodge Dart !

It's just terrible and bad design.

They won't all be hybrids. Expect more Turbo charging. NA is dead in the street Carrera's and the GT cars don't have long either.
So true and so depressing! Wish I had enough dough to get another 10 991.1s, lock them away and slowly deplete from the stash for the remainder of my insignificant life!

Screw turbos and EVs

If you're ok with 4wd and PDK I think they have one for you... 😉

This is what I foresee for the TT/TTS platform. I suspect that the TT/TTS will be hybrid only and have performance numbers to rival the 918. 3.8 with new tech turbochargers would do the trick.

Interior should be updated to mirror the Panamera, I'm guessing. Lots of capacitive touch screen type switches.

Downside is that the TT/TTS will be even heavier than it already is and, personally, I would want to wait at least until 992.2 before buying into a brand new hybrid platform.

Really interested to see where the hybrid model might fit in the Carrera range... As a new 'base' model with the focus on economy, or above the S with the focus on performance?

I would guess the latter...and they will want $$$ for that powertrain, too...

I have had 7 Audi's in the last 13 years and I can say that until they get their nose-heavy feel completely eliminated, there will never be a reason to pick a TTS over any Porsche.

TT - 911 Turbo (ie twin turbo)
TTS - 911 Turbo S

It's not a very logical shorthand.

I think he understands.... Audi used to make all their cars incredibly nose heavy. The last S4 with a V8 was probably the worst balanced german performance car you could get with an awful weight distribution.

He is saying that the AWD system on porsche makes the TT/TTS[911's] too front heavy.

Turbo has 40/60 weight distribution like the rest of them. It's still got an engine in the rear - seems weird to compare it to a front engine v8 Audi, but whatever.

AWD dynamics are a matter of taste, regardless of design.

I thought the same as you at first, but the statement quoted above, "...pick a TTS over any Porsche" implies a TTS is not a Porsche. Which, of course, an Audi TTS is not.

But maybe it will remain a semantic mystery!

Dumb question, but what is meant by vertical lettering from the pics shown? Wouldn't this be vertical lettering:

P
O
R
S
C
H
E

Which I agree would be awful.
