The TT and Beetle are both based on the VW/Audi A platform, as are the Golf, and the Jetta, and the A3...

With AWD and factory upgrades available(to TT spec), they're not that bad at all. In fact, a 4motion(vw's name for quattro) Golf is downright sporty, especially when you get your dealer to upgrade everything to TT specs.

It may be a good car, but it's far too womanly for me to drive... You can tell, because Porsche doesn't use the platform

I dont like the TT, actually; it has too little power and handling capability for the money. It is just too much money for too little, IMO.

Yes, I heard the TT was going to be getting the V6 from the S4, and the S4 is getting the 4.2 V8 from the S8...

Throwing power at an inadequate chassis causes more problems than it fixes, IMO.

The V6 in the TT is the 3.2L V(R)6 from the Golf R32, Touareg and Phaeton.

The S4 has already got the 4.2, but from what ive read, despite the power the S4 stil has a serious problem regarding a deficit of feel and involvement. shame..

Spoken like a true enthusiast. Thats why Audi's short-sightedness with this power war will not end well for them. The M5 and M3 are superior to the (R)S6 and S4 respectively and a new M5 is on the way. Manufacturers are getting silly with this "mine is more powerful than yours" thing. Its just stupid
