    1. Rendered Speculation: 2011 Audi R18 Race Livery Found on Facebook



      Audi may have pulled the wraps off of its 2011 Audi R18 racer weeks ago but we've only seen it thus far in exposed black carbon. Audi Sport typically doesn't reveal its new race liveries until the earliest race weekends, especially for a new car so we know that the black car we have all seen will eventually be painted and likely in the usual mix of silver, red, black, ...
    2. Audi A1 Coupe? Theophilus Chin Render Speculates



      During a quick visit to the Theophilus Chin blog today we ran across one of his latest photoshopped works, the render of an Audi A1 coupe. Based on the image of an A1 S-line, Chin changed the roofline to something a little more TT-inspired though we're not exactly sure it works with the A1's decidedly taller proportions.

      Will Audi build an A1 coupe? Not likely. We've heard of 5-door and Cabriolet ...
    3. Render Artist Larson Creates Audi A2 Mockup with Interesting Spin on Audi Trademark Grille



      Executives at Audi have not been terribly secretive about the upcoming successor to the ahead-of-its-time Audi A2. This time around the car is expected to make use of a shared platform and not an Audi Space Frame made of aluminum in order to keep costs in line. An upright 5-door is most likely and thus far we've seen no shortage of photoshop renders usually based off of a Volkswagen Up! concept and usually tacked on with Audi ...
    4. Render Suggests View of Audi A5 Facelift Due in 2012



      As part of its product lifecycle, the Audi A5 is due a facelift and our own sources tell us this will come in 2012 as a 2013 model. Those same sources say the car will be more than the typical freshening or P.I. (product improvement) though perhaps not quite as extensive as say a B6 to B7 A4. Either way, just how this freshened A5 will look is up for debate though we've found one intriguing render from ...
    5. Audi RS 4 Avant (B8) Renders Show Likely Look of Next RS-Car



      Though the car hasn't yet been officially shown to the public, intel about the B8-generation RS 4 has been out there for a while. Fourtitude sources tell us the car will share drivetrains with the RS 5 and that, when it does finally arrive, the RS 4 will switch back to an Avant-only offering like the B5 RS 4 and its progenitor the RS 2. Apparently sales of the RS 5 are likely cannibalistic to that of an RS 4 sedan so the ...
    6. New Audi A2 Render from TheophilusChin



      Render artist extraordinaire TheophilusChin has published a new A2 render that appears to consist primarily of Audi design components overtop the Volkswagen SpaceUp! concept car. Audi has already alluded to the fact that the car will eventually be based on the same platform as the VW concept so the choice is not a reach though it should be mentioned that not even a drawing of the upcoming A2 has been released ...
    7. Rendered Speculation: Audi A3 allroad Cool But Unlikely



      You might remember Theophilus Chin from previous render posts we've made. Chin posts his work on his blog (linked below) and even publishes some in major magazines. One of his latest creations is the above very mildly facelifted 2011 A3 Sportback converted to theoretical allroad spec.

      So what do we think?
      It's a cool idea of an interesting production variant of the A3. However, the A3 ...
    8. Audi S8 D4-Generation Render Likely VERY Close to Real Thing



      When it comes to rendering future Audi product, we're always most fond of future S-cars. Why? Audi's consistency in design of their S-car range makes creation of renders easy to do providing you pay attention to the cues. Last time around, in the case of the S8, we'd been tipped about when the car would bow and we'd known the then-new S design grille was grey with vertical chrome struts and the then-new wheel looked much like ...
    9. Rendered: Production e-tron or e-R8 by Designer Nuno Silva



      We found a collection of renderings over at Audiblog.nl by Portuguese artist Nuno Silva. Effectively Silva imagineered what a production e-tron might look like by adding more production believable components such as wheels, grille and rearview mirrors to e-tron imagery.



      So what do we think?
      The images are purely from Silva's ...
    10. Audi RS 1 Render Found on AudiBlog.nl



      We know Audi is at least working on an S1 version of its new A1 hatch if not a full-blown RS 1. Still, that hasn't stopped the photoshoposphere from imagineering such a beast and we like what we see. We found this particular shot that uses many cues from the RS 5 PR photography over at AudiBlog.nl. Read more about it after the jump.
