I suppose if we have to be left with such a small number of AWD coupes, they may as well be as potent and good looking as the Audi TT we have at our lot in Santa Clara. It is a 2009 model equipped with a 2.0L 4cyl, producing 272 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Not only does it launch from 0-60 in just over 5 measly seconds, it does it while encompassing the driver in supreme comfort and luxury. Personally I could care less about all the amenities included such as power heated mirrors, heated seats, or even the built-in navigation. I prefer a much more spartan approach to driving. My daily driver doesn't even have power steering or A/C. Yeah, I'm that guy. Regardless of whether or not you want every option under the sun, how could you complain if you owned one? There would be nothing to complain about except the fact that it only has two doors, which again is totally OK with me.

Now that we're in a time where people are buying their car based on the fact that it can park itself, I don't think there are nearly as many "drivers" as there were twenty years ago. Unfortunately we've been inundated with so much tree-hugging, Prius loving propaganda, auto makers have been turned completely upside down in regards to the markets they sell to and the cars we want to drive.
