The German car maker officially confirmed that the third generation of the Audi TT will arrive on the market in 2014. The new model will be lighter, making it sportier than its predecessors and closing the gap with its main rival, the Porsche Boxster.

Audi hopes to shave 60kg from the weight of the car, thus improving its performance and fuel efficiency. To achieve this, the manufacturer will use a greater quantity of aluminum for the bodywork and will base the model on the MQB platform, developed by its parent company Volkswagen and already found in the new Golf and the new Audi A3, among other models.

According to a number of automobile news websites, the highly anticipated Audi TT could be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, which takes place from March 6-16, 2014.
