Rumours are rife that VW is currently developing a new small rear wheel drive roadster to compete with the Mazda MX-5 and if it is given the production go ahead; both Audi and Porsche could end up with their own version.
The replacement to today’s second generation Audi TT, due in 2013 could well adopt this platform. By moving the TT to rear wheel drive, it would join the BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class and the Porsche Boxster which are all powered through the rear wheels.
Now UK Car magazine are speculating that Porsche may also choose to use the platform to create a spiritual successor to the legendary 356 (see image above), or the 914 which was manufactured between 1969 and 1976.
