2009 Audi TTS Coupe

Like Phil, I prefer the TTS coupe to the roadster. I love convertibles, don't get me wrong, but I have a soft spot for the styling of coupes like the TT, the Porsche Cayman, and the Pontiac Solstice. (And, of course, the vintage MGB/GT, which I own.) Other people apparently do, too. No one seemed to notice when I drove the white TTS roadster a couple weeks ago, but this red coupe turned many heads. In fact, it really excited a dude driving a few-year-old, spoiler-delete, black-rimmed Subaru Impreza WRX; as I approached him on the highway, he stuck his arm out the window (on a 25-degree morning, no less) to give me a thumbs-up, and when I passed him, he gave me another approving thumb and grinned widely.

I also love the impressive amount of luggage space (quasi rear seats included) that the TT coupe offers. It'd be a fantastic cross-country tourer for two people, although, most of the time, you'd definitely want to avoid the sport suspension setting, which is dramatically stiffer than the normal mode.
