Show Us Your TTs: Audi Indeed Working up Performance Versions of New Coupe

Unsatisfied with the mechanical hotness of Audi's new TT? Edmunds Inside Line is reporting two up-spec'd TT models are on the way, following a similar performance-badging continuum as Audi's more conventional lines. Adding to a recent missive in Motor Trend, Edmunds says at hand are the TT-S for 2007 and TT-RS for 2008. The TT-S will have similiar hardware as the company's new S3 hatch — that is, 265 hp from its turbocharged 2.0-liter four — though the TT could get additional horsepower by way of engine tweaks. The TT-RS won't get the 3.6-liter V6, as many had speculated. Instead, it'll reportedly get a turbo'd version of the North American Jetta's 2.5-liter five-cylinder, fitted with an identical cylinder head configuration as the company's 5.2-liter V10, and producing in the neighborhood of 365 hp. Transmission choices will allegedly include six-speed manual and a 7-speed version of the Tiptronic autobox. We're still waiting for the transverse-mounted V8.
