We can make academic arguments all day long about whether this sports car or that sports car is more hard-edged, more affordable, or more this or less that than the Audi TT, but they are largely immaterial discussions. People buy the TT, and hence the TTS, based solely on its looks. You either want this car, or you don't. The three members of the University of Michigan mens rowing team whom I hired to do some yard work last weekend were among those who seem to want it; they were all drooling over the TTS and were using that clichéd but accurate adjective to describe it: "sweet." And that was without even the privilege of sitting in it, let alone driving it.
