The autumn leaves drift by my windshield and the quad exhausts steam like a Starbucks Grande in the cold air. Late fall is a time for reflective glances, and Frank Sinatra’s rendition of “It Was a Very Good Year” comes to mind. Ever cool, never sentimental, Sinatra reminisces on “vintage” moments from the wry perspective of the later years in life. Could the Chairman be singing the theme song for the Audi TT? Indeed, “the days grow short”—for both the season and the second-generation TT. With the Mk 3 TT already in production, the timing seems right to pay a little retrospective homage to the present model.
