The Audi A1 was only unveiled about a week ago, but Audi is already tinkering on the possibility of bringing the Audi A2 back after a five-year sabbatical.

According to Rupert Stadler, Audi’s Chief Executive Officer, the plausibility of bringing back the A2 was re-opened after the company felt that there was an opportunity to insert another model between the Audi A3 and the aforementioned A1.

Reports have also indicated that the future A2 model could potentially use the same platform as the A1, albeit with a different styling mold and powertrain options. The next-generation A2 is also being touted to have a 2014 release date, giving the company ample time to determine the entire business plan on producing a new A2.

Audi has yet to reveal further details on this matter, opting to take the “keep-it-under-wraps-until-everything-is-certain” approach. But if they do push through with a new A2, here’s to hoping that it doesn’t meet a similar fate as its predecessor, which was a complete flop, selling only an 176,377 units during its time in the sun from 1999 to 2005.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I can’t wait to see the details your talking about that details may help to promote the car because I think the car is not too impressive when it comes to design.
