WUNDERBAR! after watching the first video.

The front is growing on me.

And, I like that it is shedding a lot of pounds (I think, if I remember correctly, 200 lbs) for an already fast 0-60 time in the current-gen.

420HP.

The TT-RS Successor (high probability according to Jalopnik).

The honeycomb grille is MUCH more enticing.

At first I wasn't sold on the looks of the 2015 Audi TT. But the more I look at it, the more I learn to like it. You know what else I like about it? That Audi just debuted a successor to the mighty Audi TT-RS with a whopping 420 horsepower. This is the Audi TT Quattro Sport Concept. P

The most amazing thing about this car is where those 420 horses come from: a humble 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged four-cylinder, the EA888 used in the new Audi S3, Volkswagen Golf R and other models. P

Audi says it's a new benchmark in the four-cylinder category, one with 210 horsepower per liter, a superior ratio to even Audi's Le Mans-winning 2001 R18 race car. No, it's not the wonderful old five-cylinder from the TT-RS, but it's probably better in the end. P

Should they actually build it or at least build its engine it may trump the Mercedes CLA45 AMG's motor as the most powerful production four-banger on earth.

Also, it looks beautifully aggressive. I love those huge wheels, the rear spoiler, and the very blatant display of its horsepower figure on the side so as to leave no doubt that it's awesome. P

Is it fast? Giiiiiiirrrrrrl, you better believe it's fast. Audi says that since it only weighs 2,963 pounds, it will do zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. That's about as fast as a Corvette Stingray from just four cylinders. Damn. P

And of course, as is to be expected from Audi, there's permanent quattro all-wheel drive and a dual-clutch gearbox. While it's just a concept at the moment, Audi says it's a hardcore machine, "designed for racing an extreme driving machine for the motorsports enthusiasts among our customers." P

Sweet, sign us up.
The Audi TT Quattro Sport Concept Is Fuck You, Mercedes CLA45 AMG

That's because Porsche didn't stick to their original design concept.

I don't know how reliable or unreliable screens can be.

Just think about your TV, cell phone, computer, ipod, ipad, GPS, screens are everywhere and I don't have a problem with them unless they're 20+ years old.

Heck, even fighter jets and commercial aircrafts have glass cockpit, which presumably need a lot more reliable equipment than cars.
(Yes, I know they tend to put analogue altimeter and ASI as well just incase, but still...)

I've had some issues before when I bought some shady eBay products from China but that was that.
Anyone you know own a 20 year old cell phone, computer, ipod, ipad, or GPS? And aircraft have a lot more maintenance than a car they also cost a lot more. Future tech is going to make cars worthless when they are around 10 to 15 years old.
