Audi TT Production Finally Ends After 25 Years & 662,762 Units

The final Audi TT ever produced in its over 25 year run was a TTS coupe finished in Chronos Gray Metallic. 

While it was certainly a while coming already with all the special final editions that Audi has released in recent time, the day has nevertheless finally come for the last TT to roll off the production line. After over a quarter century run and a whopping 662,762 units later, the last example of this quad-ringed sports car to be produced at its Györ plant in Hungary was to be a Chronos Gray Metallic TTS coupe. 

This marker for the end of an era was tastefully accompanied at its final assembly station by a suitably Audi-esque four TT lineup, which included the original coupe and roadster concepts from 1995, as well as two second-generation models of this German sports car. Further details regarding this final TT however are unfortunately thin on the ground, as the only official information from the German automaker currently consists of only an Instagram post on its German account.

Happily though, Audi nerds have discerned for this particular final TT to feature Dark Chrome matte accents accompanying its Chronos Gray Metallic exterior hue. It was further deduced too that the bronze selection spec was ticked, which should mean that this send-off coupe will be riding on some 20-inch wheels finished in matt bronze and feature matching four-ring graphics.

With this final TT being the TTS variant too, providing propulsion to all four wheels through Audi’s iconic Quattro all-wheel drive system should be a 315 hp 2.0-liter TFSI turbo four-pot and 7-speed dual-clutch S tronic gearbox. It however remains unknown as to what interior options have been selected with this send-off special, in addition to where exactly this last-of-the-line example will be heading too. 

Originally previewed at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show, the first-generation TT initially went on sale three years later as a coupe, before a roadster came along as well in 1999. There were a total of three generations of this Audi sports car across its 25 year run, with the latter two iterations officially arriving locally. 

Audi has previously suggested that the TT could one day return as an EV, but it has yet to make a concrete plans for an all-electric fourth iteration yet. Given too that the German automaker has since converted this sports car’s primary production location in Hungary to making electric motors instead, it is really looking less and less likely for an imminent revival of this iconic sports car name.
