Audi recently launched its e-throne in Norway. It is the first to be a large family of electric cars from Audi.
By 2025, they should have no less than 20 fully electric models. The goal is to be a leader in premium brands in this area.
Such development requires large investments and a shift in focus. It has been in the cards that Audi will cut into a very rich selection of fossil cars. When so many new models arrive,
out. And then, initially, it's the models that are not part of the core business that lives the most dangerous.
An important part of development
Now, the Automotive News industry website writes that Audi has decided to cut one of its most iconic models, the TT.
Today's issue should continue a bit, but when it reaches the end of its life cycle, it should not be replaced.
Thus, Audi removes a model that has been an important part of its development in the last decades.

When the first TT returned to the market in 1998, it was a small sensation. The design was distinctive and bold, both exterior and interior. Here, Audi dared to stand out from the competition. The car immediately became a success and helped a lot
Lift the Audi brand for years to come.
The first generation TT came as roadster coupe and two seats. Although the driving characteristics were not entirely related to the design (under the shell, the car shared most of the technique with the fourth generation of VW Golf), it was adored by car buyers.
who wanted a distinctive and sporty car – that did not cost the shirt.
Now the first generation is about to become a collector's item. Fine, well-executed copies are expected to increase in price over the next few years.

Real driving machine
In 2006, it became clear to a whole new generation. Audi then responded clearly to what had been an objection to the first: that the rest of the car was not as sporty as the design. The new TT was much more expensive and advanced
construction. But the design was not as distinctive as it had been before.
In 2014 the car of the day arrived. Here the TT grew like a true steering machine. There have also been special extra-sporting problems along the way, cars that more than happy to participate in fierce driving rounds of track.

Will it disappear soon?
How long Audi will continue to sell TT is not known. But this is typically a model that sells most of the volume at the beginning of each generation when it has the interest of news. Buyers are eager to have the latest
and finally. When that phase ends, sales fall sharply.
When it is clear now that it will disappear, there is hardly any reason to keep the model alive for many years.
The TT does not receive any direct replacement, but it will surprise if Audi also does not have a coupe version in the plans when it launches its great electric car initiative in the coming years.
Fine cars of 100,000 kronor
In the second-hand market, you now get the first TT of about 20,000 Norwegian kroner. So we're talking about cars that have not only lived a silver tray life in recent years. If you go for such a copy, you must be a mechanical hobbyist and have plenty of time to turn around –
or have a well-developed home improvement budget.
The most accessible cars are characterized by heavy use and little accompaniment. The mileage is usually around 250,000, often more.
If you rise to about 100,000 kroner, you can get beautiful cars that have not been very terrifying. As usual, it's smart to look for cars with few owners and a well-documented history. Many TTs were
car number two or three and lived good lives. These copies are by far the best buys.
