While there are a handful of cars you can buy brand new for under $30,000, that’s still more money than the average consumer wants to spend on a vehicle that lacks a lot of practicality. There are a lot of sports cars on the used car market, but it’s hard to know which ones are worth buying and which ones are worth leaving at the dealership. For all of the years of used Audi TT, there are a handful of exceptional options that are affordable to buy and even build.
Generations of the Audi TT
The Audi TT has been around for quite some time, giving us several generations and styles to chose from. While newer years look modern and aggressive, some of the older years look borderline cute. Like many other Audi cars, the TT has aged well. There is more to the TT than just it’s looks, and each generation has a range of trim levels that can make the car look more or less aggressive depending on your personal style and preferences.
The TT is available as a coupe or a convertible, making it an excellent option for a weekend car or a sporty roadster. Most of them do surprisingly have backseats as well, though they are so small they aren’t necessarily practical. In fact, most of what the TT has to offer isn’t practical. The lack of headspace and slim structure can make the driver and passenger feel claustrophobic, but that’s just part of owning such a small car, like the Lotus Elise.
A sporty and affordable option
The Audi TT wasn’t designed to practical, it was designed to be fun. With the turbocharged option, this small sports car dominates the roadway and handles like a true sports car. Even better, they aren’t necessarily popular, meaning you won’t be pulling up next to another TT at every other stoplight. Regardless of year, the TT’s appearance is unique and people will be doing a double-take as you drive by.
Depending on the year and trim level of the Audi TT you are looking for will change the price. You can find older models for under $10,000 but even newer, higher trim levels can range well under $20,000. They are uncommon enough to be a unique option for a sports car, and they don’t have to blow your budget either.
