New Audi TT with a TDI; Roadster too

Audi TT 2.0L TDI
Wired highlighted the new Audi TT 2.0 TDI, but can’t confirm if it will be available North America. Notice the comment “Roadster” below … might we see a TDI convertible? (LINK to full article)

Behold the TT 2.0 TDI. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (pictured above), matched to a six-speed manual transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive, is good for 167 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque — enough to prod the coupe to 60 mph in about 7.4 seconds (7.6 for the slightly heavier Roadster) and on to a top speed of 140 mph (138 mph for the Roadster). Perhaps more noteworthy than its performance, however, is the diesel TT’s meager appetite: Audi is claiming 44.4 mpg for the coupe (42.8 mpg for the Roadster).
