Default Is there an Audi TT-RS convertible and do they sell it in the us?

Hello All,
Researching buying an audi. Really want a convertible and am torn between an audi rs5 and a TTS. But saw that the TT RS is a stick and was wondering if they make a convertible in the TT RS. Found an article talking about it but it was a UK article. Anyone know if its available?

Thanks jrogmb

Short answer: If there was I would already own it. But there's not.

We have a 2013 TTS Roadster, which my wife originally got new as a 3 year lease. It wasn't a DD as I work from home a lot, and she was driving our SUV to work. After 3 years and at the end of the lease, there was but 12k miles on it. At that time I was looking for something new and exciting (in the TT domain). Nothing was better except the TTRS. But with no Roadster imported to the U.S., it was a non-starter.

To be fair, we are looking at the new Porsche's. But we haven't decided to spend the money....yet. I'll reluctantly give up my Stage II+ tuner toy if we go that route.

If you are buying new, you are on the wrong forum because the new TT is the Mk 3. That said, if you really want a new Audi convertible in the US, your only Audi options are A3, A5, S5, and base TT, the are no new RS model convertibles except for the R8 and the only S model is the S5. The most powerful TT convertible ever sold in the US was the Mk 2 TTS. The Mk 3 TTS roadster is not being sold here. I'm not positive but I don't think Audi has sold a stick convertible in the US since 2006.

If you are not in North America, Audi sells a new TTS roadster and a TTRS roadster in the rest of the world.

The S5 still had a 6 speed manual available through 2017( mine is manual) but convertibles were DSG auto only. As stated, Mk2 TTRS was manual but coupe only in North America. I’ve pretty much faced the fact that if I ever buy a newer roadster ( Or coupe for that matter), it will be automatic. The 2008 2009 TT roadster was available with a 3.2 liter V6 and 6 speed manual. They are uber rare. I found one once and should have bought it. It would have been a keeper.

I forgot about the 3.2 Mk 2 and yeah they are extremely rare, even in the coupe.
