1995 TT concept in B&W.

1995-audi-tt-concept-sketch

The MK1 TT is quite simply the most beautiful German car design in…what…the last 50 years….since the original Porsche 911, in my humblest opinion.  The 80s and early 90s were pretty dark and depressing times for German car design which entered a comfort zone of drab, unimaginative, uncreative designs (except Porsche, who were always putting together interesting cars)..and the TT put an end to those dark ages.  Timeless, ageless, and pure…..and with rumours of the next-generation MK3 TT being heavily influenced by the original, the MK1 TT’s legend will continue to grow.

Here’s the original 1995 MK1 TT Concept….the automotive design equivalent of punk rock in 1995!  I have turned the original manufacturer photos in B&W to fully appreciate the geometry and design pornography!

It is astounding to me that the MK1 TT Coupe that sits in my garage (for the last 10+ years) is virtually identical to this concept, barring a few select details.

car of the day. Audi RS2.

Well, i’m a self-confessed Audi person; however these days i’ve had an overwhelming fascination with the Audi RS2.  Developed with Porsche in the mid-90s, the Audi RS2 is the beginning of the entire RS brigade that Audi would further launch afterwards.

Yes, it’s a wagon—yes it was engineered by Porsche—-and yes it’s faster from 0-30 than a McLaren F1.  They never brought these to the USA, and that blows—-however word is there are a couple in the US, and a couple more that are being converted into RS2s from regular Audi 80/90.  Avants…..interesting.

A friend of mine from Norway, Espen—-recently had his RS2 stolen in Norway.  Those daft bastards—–you’re gonna get busted.

I WANT!
