    1. Breaking: Audi Enters Exclusive Deal with Ducati to Buy Italian Motorcycle Manufacturer



      Out of nowhere CAR Magazine today has broken a story this morning that Audi entered an exclusive deal to buy motorcycle manufacturer Ducati.

    2. CAR Magazine Publishes Next-Generation Audi R8 Intel Report by Georg Kacher



      At Fourtitude we like to think we're well-connected to the inside line in Ingolstadt, even ahead of the curve.

      CAR Magazine has published a report from Georg Kacher about Audi's plans for Q-model expansion, focusing in particular on the ideas of Q6, Q4 and Q1 and pairing the piece with two proposed Q4 renders by Schulte Design that are based on photographs unlike the drawing-based render by Fourtitude's staff seen above.
