The automotive industry evolves faster than just about any other industry. Every year, new advancements and models hit the roads. Companies like Tesla are changing the way we drive while the old guard of Ford, GM, and Chrysler continue to try and stay relevant heading into 2024 and beyond. Some cars have been on the road for decades now. But even a good ride with solid sales numbers has to reach the end of the road at some point.
With places like California outlawing gasoline-powered vehicles in a few years, there isn’t room for a lot of these older models. The choice for cars has never been wider and these models are becoming long in the tooth. While it’s sad to see some pioneering models hit the road, it also opens the door for innovation. The next generation of cars and trucks will be even better and more efficient than ever before. Join us as we look at the cars and trucks that are calling it quits for the 2024 model year.
Audi TT & TTS
The Audi TT has been around for a long time. It was one of the original new-generation style sports cars that came out in the late 1990s. And if the styling looks familiar, it’s because Volkswagen was utilizing that type of design language in 1998 with all of their cars. Nevertheless, the TT became a surprise hit and spurred new interest in Audi. The car had a reasonable run in the racing circuit and it did quite well on sales as well. Nevertheless, the TT is long in the tooth so Audi will discontinue all variations of the car for 2024 (via Team BHP).
The TT was a notable car because of its traction control and the power plant under the hood. There wasn’t anything overly powerful about the TT but it did manage to crave a niche for itself. The convertible version was also a fun little roadster that took the twists and turns like a professional track car. All in all, the build quality of the TT is something most sports cars can’t compete with.
