Is This Audi R8 RWD GT the Very Last Version of the R8 as we Know it?

Is This Audi R8 RWD GT the Very Last Version of the R8 as we Know it?

We could expect an R8 with around 600 horsepower

Everyone knows that Audi R8 lives on borrowed time. A successor will happen, but not as we know it:->art193913] reports suggest that the next R8 will drop the current V-10 engine and will be offered with an electric powertrain. That decision comes because Audi wants to go all-electric by 2026.

However, until that happens, Audi is preparing one last hooray for the current generation R8. Our spy photographers caught an R8 test mule testing during winter conditions and it is believed to be the R8 RWD GT.

Audi's A3 Allroad Ambitions Exposed in New, Snowy Images

Audi’s A3 Allroad Ambitions Exposed in New, Snowy Images

At this point, it would be silly to think that there won’t be an Audi A3 Allroad

Following a previous spotting of a jacked-up A3, a new set of spy shots has essentially confirmed that Audi is, in fact, designing an A3 Allroad. Like the previously spotted model, this one was wearing a lot of camouflage on the lower body, meaty tires, and it clearly has elevated suspension – enough for at least 2-3 inches of extra ground clearance over that standard A3. Although the camo does a good job at concealing what’s underneath, if you look closely, you can make out cladding around the wheel arches, especially in the front. The side skirts don’t appear to be any beefier, but there’s a good chance that are plastic for added protection.

Beyond this, there will likely be more hard plastic all around to protect the car on mild off-road adventures. The rear doesn’t appear to be any different, though the front will likely take on a more rugged appearance. Little else is known about this specific car. It may not even be known as an Allroad as the Citycarver name – previously found on the jacked-up A1 – could also make a comeback. The A1 Citycarver actually had a taller suspension (about two inches), larger tires, some plastic cladding, and an overall more rugged appearance. This A3 could simply be a larger version of that, leaving the Allroad name for larger models.

The Audi R8 Will Be Retired to Make Way for an Electric Supercar

The Audi R8 Will Be Retired to Make Way for an Electric Supercar

Audi thinks that the future of high performance cars is indeed electric

The current generation of the Audi R8 is living on borrowed time. Its V10 engine is one of the last of its breed, and as the world continues to enforce ever-stricter emissions regulations, the future of the V10-powered R8 has officially been confirmed today. If you want an Audi supercar with a V10 engine, you better head to your nearest dealer and buy one now.

Here's Your First Look at The Last Fuel-Powered Audi A4

Here’s Your First Look at The Last Fuel-Powered Audi A4

This is our first spotting of the Audi A4 Avant and a reminder that this is the last generation to feature an internal combustion engine

It wasn’t long ago that Audi boss, Markus Duesmann, told Germany’s Manager Magazin that the midsize A4 will ditch the internal combustion engine by 2023. As such, the next-gen model that’s seen here (and due in 2023) represents that last fuel-powered generation of the A4 with an electric model due after that. So, will this generation get all the bells and whistles to give it a proper send-off, or will it be business as usual?

Q8 E-Tron Confirmed as Facelifted E-Tron Prototype Reveals Minor Changes

Q8 E-Tron Confirmed as Facelifted E-Tron Prototype Reveals Minor Changes

The E-Tron EV will be revised for 2022, but will be replaced in 2026 by the new Q8 E-Tron

Audi is not backing down from electrification. Just recently we learned that the RS6 Avant E-Tron should launch in 2023 and not even a week after that, the company launched the China-only Q5 E-Tron, basically a rebadged Volkswagen ID.6X. And, while all these new models are cool, we can’t forget about existing models, like the original E-Tron – Audi’s largest electric SUV to date. That’s why the company is hard at work to refresh it for 2022 – a move that will keep it fresh until its successor arrives. That successor, we just learned will be coming in 2026.

The Audi RS6 Avant E-Tron Should Launch in 2023

The Audi RS6 Avant E-Tron Should Launch in 2023

A new report claims that Audi isn’t only working on a new RS6 E-Tron Avant, but that it will be launching within two years!

It was just back in April of 2021 that Audi launched the A6 E-Tron concept – a car that was originally thought to replace the fuel-drinking A6. As it turned out, the A6 E-Tron won’t replace the regular A6, but it will be the A6’s EV counterpart. About a month after it was released, I sat down to make a case for how the A6 E-Tron could become the electric wagon – or Avant in Audi talk – that 2025 needs. If the latest reports are true, I could have been right, except that Audi might be moving quicker than I anticipated.

2023 Audi Q9

2023 Audi Q9

What can we expect from Audi’s upcoming full-size SUV?

Rumors of a new full-size Audi SUV have been circulating for a long time and now there’s actual proof that Audi is indeed cooking a new flagship SUV model. Recently, a fully-camouflaged Audi SUV has been spotted testing at Volkswagen’s test facility in Sweden, doing cold-weather testing. With BMW’s introduction of the X7 and Mercedes’s GLS already on sale for some years, it only made sense for Audi to bring out a competitor. Here’s what we know so far.

Update 10-27-2021: The Audi Q9 has been spotted once again, this time doing some on-road testing in warmer weather.

The Audi R8 Bloodline Carries On - Maybe Even As An EV

The Audi R8 Bloodline Carries On - Maybe Even As An EV

The future of Audi R8 is uncertain, but reports suggest it may become a hybrid or even fully electric by 2023

With a few exceptions, Audi is a brand that makes luxury cars that, for the most part, feature a rather unremarkable design. While that changed in the last few years, one model that has always been exciting is the Audi R8. Since its debut, in 2006, the mid-engine model hasn’t experienced any radical changes. However a few months ago, Hildegard Wortmann – Audi’s global chief of sales and marketing – stated that the Audi R8 “is an icon of the past, not necessarily the future”. This points to the R8 nearing the end of its lifespan in order to make room for something new.

Audi Grandsphere Concept - A Luxurious EV That's A 'Private Jet For The Roads'

Audi Grandsphere Concept - A Luxurious EV That’s A ’Private Jet For The Roads’

The Audi Grandsphere Concept comes with specs like 700+ horsepower, Level 4 Autonomy, and a luxurious cabin

Audi’s onslaught in the EV segment continues. Less than a month after debuting the convertible two-seater Skysphere concept, the automaker has now unveiled another concept; this time a four-door concept called the Grandsphere. The concept comes with interesting specs like a dual motor setup, 711 horses and 708 pound-feet of torque, 0-62 mph in just over four seconds, etc. The stretched model which Audi calls “private jet for the roads” is surprisingly even longer than some Ford F-150 models! Seems like an interesting product, doesn’t it?

2021 Audi Skysphere Concept - A Transformer That Can Change Shape On The Fly

2021 Audi Skysphere Concept - A Transformer That Can Change Shape On The Fly

This remarkable electric roadster can change its length at the flick of a button, becoming a luxury lounge on wheels

Concept cars come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The Skysphere Concept, which Audi has now digitally unveiled, is unique in more ways than one. It is a massive autonomous open two-seater GT car, that can drive itself.

However, the biggest highlight of this long electric roadster with a soft-top is its ability to change its dimensions on the fly by 9.8 inches. Yes, you heard that right, at the push of a button, the 16-feet long GT extends its length and gets even longer to 17-feet.

Audi Might Have a Big Surprise At the 2022 Geneva Motor Show

Audi Might Have a Big Surprise At the 2022 Geneva Motor Show

The Audi A6 E-Tron is a lot closer to production than we all thought!

Audi showed up to the Shanghai Auto Show with the A6 E-Tron Concept, a car that seemed more like a futuristic A8 than an A6, and one that had production written all over it. It could also become the brand’s first electric wagon, but we’ll leave that discussion for another time. Until now, we’ve heard nothing about when we’d see a production version, but a new report says that A6 E-Tron is slated for production very soon.

Audi Is Befuddled About What a Sports Car Really Is

Audi Is Befuddled About What a Sports Car Really Is

Can there ever be such a thing as a self-driving sports car?

Following Audi’s last teaser for the Grand Sphere concept – a flagship sedan with RS6-like proportions and potentially a hint at the next-gen A8, Audi has shown off another teaser. This time, we’re looking at the Sky Sphere which is, appropriately, a roofless car that also features sporty proportions. However, there’s something about this specific concept that doesn’t make a lot of sense.

A Closer Look At the 2022 Audi RS3

A Closer Look At the 2022 Audi RS3

The 2022 Audi RS3 will be quite the looker with the inline-five performance you expect

The new, fourth-gen Audi A3 was revealed in 2020 through a Covid-induced online event with a new, sportier front end and more attractive styling for both sedan and hatchback body types. The Audi S3 arrived later on in 2020 with a more aggressive attitude, but we’ve still been waiting and itching to see the new RS3. The wait is finally over – well, kind of. The new RS3 won’t make its official debut until sometime in July, but thanks to Auditography, we get to see what the production model looks like in some cool camo.

The Next-Gen Audi A4 Arrives In The Shadow of a High-Performance EV

The Next-Gen Audi A4 Arrives In The Shadow of a High-Performance EV

The Audi A4 RS E-Tron EV Will Actually Be Sold Alongside the Gas-Powered Audi A4

In 2021 alone, Audi has flipped the script, fully embracing electrification without thinking twice about it. What started with the E-Tron GT quickly led to the release of the Q4 E-Tron and Q4 E-Tron Sportback. And, just when you thought that was enough, Audi hit us with that cool-as-hell A6 E-Tron concept. Now, we’re learning that Audi is planning to stir up the pond even more, and this time it’s the RS4 that’s in the crosshairs, and you’re probably going to think this is really good news.

If Audi Is going To Make Something Smaller Than the Q4 E-Tron, It'll Be A Sports Car

If Audi Is going To Make Something Smaller Than the Q4 E-Tron, It’ll Be A Sports Car

Audi isn’t sure exactly what its future holds, but a smaller crossover probably isn’t part of the equation

Audi has been on an E-Tron roll lately, introducing four different models in a very short period of time. It started with the E-Tron GT, which hits the market before the end of the year. That was followed up by the Q4 E-Tron and the Q4 E-Tron Sportback. Right when we thought we had enough, Audi hit us with the A6 E-Tron Concept – a car that should have been called an A7, if it wasn’t for one very important reason. All of this leaves us with a few questions: When will the A6 E-Tron go into production, what’s Coming Next, and will Audi offer something smaller that the Q4?

The Audi A6 E-Tron Could Become the Electric Wagon 2025 Needs

The Audi A6 E-Tron Could Become the Electric Wagon 2025 Needs

Despite the A7-like proportions, Audi had a good reason to call its latest E-Tron Concept an A6

When Audi revealed the A6 E-Tron Concept back in April 2021, there was a very big elephant in the room: The A6 name. Despite the fact that it featured A7-like proportions, like the four-door coupe body, for example, Audi chose the A6 name instead, and there’s actually a logical reason.

Audi’s push for electrification might throw some of its loved models under the bus

Audi isn’t showing signs of slowing down its involvement into the electric car movement, which means some of its former standout cars might have to suffer in the long term, including the R8 supercar and the TT sports car.
