      Our spy photographer sources have just sent us over a new set of shots of the R8 e-tron test mule of which a few photos surfaced yesterday. Photographers tell us this mule rounded the Ring quite quietly though we're checking to see if it was employing any of the e-sound elements that Audi defined recently.

    4. Supposed Audi R8 e-tron Interior Spy Photo Surfaces. Could Reveal R8 Facelift Interior.



      Two photos (one above, one via the link below) surfaced this week of what is purported to be the interior of the R8 e-tron. If that is the case (and we're guessing it is), then this begs the question of how much of these changes will also be seen in the new and facelifted audi R8 when it debuts likely at the Paris Motor Show in September.

      What Do We See?
      The most obvious change here is a much bigger ...
    5. 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. Then there are guys like Georg Kacher, someone we hold in the highest regard for his own nearly unmatched insight into product development at Audi.

    7. Audi A3 e-tron Set for Debut Tomorrow at L.A. Auto Show



      Exemplifying the ever-changing intersection of car manufacturers and social media outlets, Audi has previewed its planned A3 e-tron concept via a video posted to Audi USA's Facebook page. Set for debut tomorrow at the L.A. Auto Show, this A3 e-tron is not a version of the platinum-colored A3 e-tron sedan concept shown earlier this year in China. That concept ...
    8. Intel: Audi To Build Production Version of Urban Concept



      Performance nutters may grouse but car manufacturers can't really deny the high-efficiency end of the automotive market. For September's Frankfurt Motor Show, each of the German heavy hitters pulled out a lightweight and super efficient concept and in Audi's case it was both coupe and spyder version of the Audi Urban Concept.

    9. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt (Part 2)



      As mentioned yesterday, we've spent the better part of the last two weeks in Germany and over four of those days we stopped in for a visit at Audi's world headquarters in the form of the Audi Forum Ingolstadt. With so many nearly back-to-back visits, we expected to see much of the same after the first stop though this was not the case. Back only two days later ...
    10. More Audi R5 Rumors/Intel from AutoExpress



      The R8 is due for a little brother says AutoExpress. Audi board member Michael Dick once told us he liked the idea and AutoExpress suggests this "R4" will be based closely on the e-tron Spyder and feature the 2.5 TFSI pumping close to 400 hp with all-wheel drive and eventually a hybrid version pushing electric power via the front wheels.
