Audi's next-generation TT is again under the spotlight, with new reports this week pointing once more to a late 2013 unveiling and a 2014 showroom debut.

Appearances in Europe of a TT test mule give away little of what we can expect from the new model, spied wearing the current car's sheetmetal and with a cabin covered in heavy camouflage.

But, look closely, and it does appear that the 2014 Audi TT will sit on a slightly longer wheelbase than the present model.

A repositioned front wheelarch is the only indicator of a dimensional change for the third-gen TT, so don't expect any radical differences in external proportions.

Engines are expected to include the Volkswagen Group's EA888 engine, with a 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged mill producing around 165kW.

Reports suggest the five-cylinder turbo in the current TT RS may again appear, but with output boosted to a mighty 285kW.

Under-the-skin changes will, of course, be substantial.

The next-generation TT will be built on the Volkswagen Group's new Modular Transverse Matrix (or MQB) platform, which will eventually underpin everything from the Audi A3 to the next Volkswagen Tiguan.

According to some reports, the TT's version of the MQB platform will also feature a high proportion of aluminium structural members to help shave off weight.

Many of these features will come from the ultra-light Ultra Quattro concept revealed at the Worthersee GTI Treffen in April.

Audi is reportedly positioning the 2014 TT as a Porsche Boxster competitor, and with a front-engined layout the TT will need as much of a weight advantage as it can get to take the challenge to the mid-engined Boxster.
