The 2010 Audi TT's versatility in body styles is matched by a few sports coupes, though none can top its variety of drivetrains.
The new Nissan 370Z cuts length to gain in style, handling, and ride quality, but it's still rough and noisy compared to the TT.
The Mercedes-Benz SLK has a folding hardtop, a technically interesting style, and a hot AMG performance edition, but the Audi TTS has a lighter, nimbler feel.
It's probably out of the question for badge snobs, but if a base Porsche Boxster is still too expensive, a fully optioned TTS still checks in below $50,000.
