Yea the Cayman would be the best car in the world (under $100k) if it had the 911's suspension tech and engine. But there is still a lot of people who would prefer the engine in the back. Yes, it would be better if it were mid-engined, but it's good to have some variety.

Audi should let Porsche use their engineering voodoo to improve the driving dynamics of their cars, especially the S and RS models. They took a Q5 and and turned into a tail-happy Macan if you get on the gas pedal in a turn. All an Audi does in that situation is under-steer even more. And this is not just about being able to drive like you're crazy, but about balance, sporty driving dynamics, control, and the joy of driving!!! I guess that's something Audi doesn't comprehend (unless you spend over $100k for an R8, LOL!)

The side surfacing looks identical to the old model. I think they should have made it more aggressive to match the front. Missed opportunity to do something really cool.

Agreed, the bloated, curvy side profile is a mismatch for the angular front end.

Interior is a definite improvement. The first gen TT was cutting edge in terms of style, and the second ge looked like cookie cutter audi. This new one is a big step in the right direction.

I think you mean small step. It's ridiculously evolutionary and predictable. It looks fine, but somewhat dated too. So much for Audi leading the way anymore.

I agree with that part. That's also one of the reasons why I like the 2nd gen TT better - it's just more cohesive overall.

The profile and surfacing of the sides is far, far too reminiscent of the 2nd generation TT, as is the styling of the rear end. Some people might have a little trouble telling it apart from the previous model, until they see that angular, aggressive looking front end.

It looks like it's really, really angry and wants the world to suffer.
