    • Audi will be bringing entry level R4 roadster to market in 2014 - will share platform with Porsche and VW

      Autocar has confirmed that the Audi R4 will be coming to market in the next few years. Audi chairman Rupert Stadler reportedly approved the plans for Audi to share the platform with the two other VW group makes, Porsche and Volkswagen. Pricing converted directly from the quoted 25k British Pounds is $40,000. The motor would almost certainly be the 2.0T four cylinder but the TT-RS turbo 5 cylinder may find its way in.

        That does look awesome although I doubt it will look like that. If it does though for that price... wow.

        so Porsche gave them the green light ? didn't think they would allow it since they have Boxster in that segment.
        What about Quattro concept ? does it mean it will get into production line too ?

        Porsche no longer has authority over them.
