The end of the 2023 model production year will mark the demise of the “fun Audi,” the ICE-powered, two-seater Audi TT sports car. Audi of America recently announced a limited run of just 50 2023 Audi TT Roadster Final Edition sports cars for sale in the U.S.

Audi’s farewell TT build resembles the 2024 Jaguar F-Type ZP Special Edition. The limited-run Jaguar roadster and coupe references the company’s historic racing success. A notable difference between the two marques is that Jaguar will switch to EVs entirely after the 2024 model year. Audi is committed to a U.S. model lineup that will be at least 30% electrified by 2025 but will continue to sell gas-powered cars, such as the Audi Q7 Prestige midsize SUV and the S5 Sportback.

Audi launched the TT Coupe in 1998 and the TT Roadster convertible version in 1999. The company named the car after the famously challenging Tourist Trophy motorcycle race on the Isle of Man. The Tourist Trophy race, first held in 1907, is considered the most dangerous race in motorsports due to the number of race-related fatalities.

The 2023 Audi TT Roadster Final Edition features exclusive styling for the sharp, limited-run look. The only exterior color available is Goodwood Green with a light gray power-operated top. Audi says the convertible top raises or lowers in 10 seconds at speeds of 31 mph or less.

The Final Edition’s seats, center console, armrests, and additional interior surfaces are covered with Palomino Brown leather with the distinctive baseball stitching used with the original TT Roadster. Heated neck-level seats will warm the driver and passenger on cooler drives with the top down. The seatbelts also contain microphones for voice recognition via Bluetooth.

It wouldn’t be fitting if the Audi TT Roadster Final Edition was only about color and style, and that’s genuinely not the case. Under the hood lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with up to 228 horsepower and a maximum of 258 pound-feet of torque. You can change between the Audi’s gears using a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Audi says the TT Roadster can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a respectable 5.5 seconds.

The TT Roadster Final Edition employs Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive and Audi Magnetic Ride suspension. The latter feature uses force sensors to quickly charge electromagnetic fields in the suspension coils to alter the thickness of the fluid in the coils for support during hard cornering.

The Audi Final Edition TT Roadster delivers exclusive style and performance for a limited run. Limited final editions of desirable vehicles are unexpected opportunities from the worldwide transition from internal combustion engines to electric motors. The 2024 Triumph Thruxton Final Edition motorcycle is another example of a close-out model with roots in automotive history. For the next few years, car and motorcycle collectors may have many chances to buy new vehicles that instantly become legacy investments.

The 2023 Audi TT Roadster Final Edition is available for sale immediately with an MSRP of $67,800 and a mandatory $1,095 destination charge. With only 50 available in the U.S., Audi fans who want one need to act immediately.

BMW sets all-time U.S. sales record on back of EV lineup, MINI shows huge gains
BMW, MINI had a huge sales year in 2023
BMW i7 M70 xDrive

BMW has just smashed its annual sales record in North America, thanks in part to the manufacturer’s successful range of EVs and the appeal of the Mini brand. The Bavarian car builder announced it had sold a total of 362,244 to American customers in 2023 -- a 9% increase on its 2022 figures. The company also saw a strong final quarter of 2023, with sales seeing a 6% spike in the last few months of the year.

During that time, EV sales roughly tripled, demonstrating that the gamble BMW took when it decided to push hard on electric is paying off. 2023 saw the launch of the electric 5 Series, along with the i7. Both vehicles also received an “M” package with boosted performance and a few special features. The i4 sedan and iX SUV complete the company’s current North American electric lineup, though more EVs are expected to emerge in the near future. This includes the first electric version of the BMW M5 -- which could be announced in the summer of 2024, with customers getting behind the wheel sometime in late 2024 or early 2025. All in all, BMW sold 45,417 EVs to Americans in 2023, which the company says is around 12.5% of its total sales output. Given this success is happening while the process of electrifying the BMW lineup is far from complete -- the company’s chances of hitting its 50% EV sales target are looking a lot more realistic.

2024 Polaris 3-wheeler model lineup features performance-inspired Slingshot Roush Edition
2024 Polaris Slingshot adds power to styling pizazz.
2024 Polaris Slingshot ROUSH Edition on a city street driving straight toward the viewer.

The Polaris 3-wheel Slingshot has always been a "Look-at-me" statement vehicle. It's also a ton of fun to drive. The 2024 Slingshot model lineup maintains its attention-getting edge, adding to the funmobile's livability and performance capabilities.
Polaris makes it easy to customize your Slingshot with a wide selection of accessories. Notable new Slingshot accessories include top and rear panel options for more excellent protection from the elements. Driving a Slingshot is an open-air experience. State laws vary, but some states classify the three-wheeler as a motorcycle and require that drivers and passengers wear helmets. Equipping your Slingshot with a top provides a modicum of protection from the baking sun and heavy rain. Add a back panel; you'll also have less head and helmet buffeting from the wind.

The 2024 Slingshot Roush Edition brings upgraded performance to the platform with upgraded Brembo brakes, a race car-style steering wheel, and brand-specific styling elements.
