  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Audi TT RS to Get New All-Aluminum Turbo Five-Cylinder, OLED Taillights

Recommended Posts

Audi TTS Coupé

-

Throughout the late 1970s and the ’80s, Audi’s enthusiast reputation was largely shaped by its fantastic five-cylinder engines. Powerful, torquey, and possessed of an unmistakable sound, they were a unique and defining feature for the brand. In the ’90s, they made way for a generation of rather dull V-6 units, but a new five-banger was launched with the last-generation TT RS and RS3. Based on the Mexico-built EA113 four-cylinder “Iron Gustav” engine, it proved to be a highly efficient and powerful unit with a character of its own.

As VW is phasing out the EA113 engine, there was concern among aficionados that the formidable straight-five might be on its way out as well. But we have learned from our sources that the engine will instead receive a major upgrade and move to an aluminum block. To be launched in the upcoming, third-gen TT RS (it hasn’t been unveiled yet; the less-potent TTS is pictured above) and the facelifted RS3 Quattro later this year, it is expected to crank out around 400 horsepower, comparing favorably to Mercedes-AMG’s 375-hp 2.0-liter M133 four-cylinder engine.

The new engine won’t be the only innovative feature of the next TT RS. We hear it’ll be launched with OLED taillights as seen on the ultra-limited-edition BMW M4 GTS. Audi also will take OLED technology into the interior of its vehicles, as you can look for the upcoming, all-electric R8 e-tron to feature mirrors with an OLED display inside.
