• Audi Quattro Concept may see production to honor 35th anniversary of Quattro?

      We are hoping this is one rumor that comes true. The last time we discussed the awesome Quattro Concept was with an article that stated production might happen in 2013. That production outlook is now strengthened thanks to an AutoBild report that this model would be a 35th anniversary gift for Quattro. That would also mean we would not see it until 2015. 3 years of waiting is much better than it not happening at all.

      The model would likely be slotted in between the TT-RS and R8. That means a price tag somewhere in the $80k region. Not cheap, but not terrible for a projected 3000 pound car with all wheel drive and 380 horsepower from an inline-5 cylinder turbo.

      We want it to happen and think this would be a great enthusiast vehicle. Is it necessary to slot something in between the TT-RS and R8? No, but if Audi does this to honor Quattro's 35th anniversary we applaud them. It would also mean they would have yet another sports car in the lineup that BMW has no answer for. We applaud that as well.

        Even if Audi doesn't produce this Quattro Coupe, it certainly seems like they're on the right track with recent product offerings.

        This car would be amazing though. I prefer the look of this one to the RS5, to be honest.

        Strongly agree. I like what Audi is doing.

        I'd dump BMW in a heartbeat if Audi made this car.
