Rumours of new TT models have been circulating for some time, including talk of crossovers and SUVs.
Today however, new artwork has surfaced online that suggests Audi will unveil a slightly (slightly) more rational addition to the range: the TT Sportback.
But, as a TT model - and one built on Volkswagen's new MQB platform - this new Sportback would offer shoppers an even more sporting buy.
Obtained by German outlet Auto Zeitung, these new renderings, while not yet officially claimed by the carmaker, are reported to be authentic Audi illustrations.
Front-end styling in these illustrations is consistent with the look of the new TT models, from the wide-open grille to the sharp headlights and flared guards.
Likewise, the shape through the profile matches the lines of the TT Coupe - albeit with a significantly stretched rear section to accommodate an extra pair of doors.
At the back, the artwork reveals a slender new lighting design that stretches across the four-door coupe’s tail, replacing the smaller units featured with the two-door models.
To better accommodate rear passengers, the new TT Sportback is understood to be built on a version of the MQB platform that underpins the two-door cars, stretching the wheelbase and overall length; the latter by around 290mm.
It has also been reported that the two rear seats are a split-fold design that, when laid flat, can boost rear storage to 850 litres.
If the TT Sportback is indeed coming, expect to see it at next month’s Paris Motor Show.
