Sometimes you just can't wait. So Audi has decided to give a sneak peek of what it will formally unveil at Javits Center. It provided a brief look at the new, 2007 TT Coupe during a Berlin briefing, and as rumored, the new 2-seater will come in a wee bit longer and wider. The look is familiar, though there's a bit more sculpting to the '07 model. Ironically, the car that influenced Nissan's 350Z now looks a bit more like the Asian import. The new version will be offered with a pair of powertrains, including a 2.0-liter I-4 that can still deliver spirited 0-60 times, Audi claims, of 6.4 seconds. The 3.2-liter V-6 gets quattro all-wheel-drive, and cuts nearly a full second off that launch time, and boasts a limited top speed of 155 mph. Both engines will be mated to a 6-speed stick or an optional, sequential manual gearbox.

The New York auto show will be the first public display of the new 2007 Nissan Altima. A new body style arrives in 2007 on a new "D" platform, promising better body rigidity and a newly penned suspension. Nissan's Xtronic CVT will be standard on all models, while the 3.5-liter V-6 and 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines will remain on the roster. On sale in the fall of 2006, the Altima, Nissan says, will be one of the best-performing front-drive sedans on the market.
