    Rumors Audi product, spied test mules, and prototypes.

    1. Crossover Expansion Planned at Audi Says Kacher, Including Q1, Q4, Q6



      As the Audi Q3 moves into production and distribution, Automobile Magazine's European contributor and usual suspect in our News & Rumors coverage Georg Kacher has filed an intel report on Ingolstadt's master plan toward crossover expansion. Turns out Q7, Q5 and now Q3 are only the beginning.

      Here's a quick run-down.

    2. Audi RS 7 Test Mule Spotted Hot Weather Testing



      Check out these spy photos that came in from our sources this morning. The photographer labeled it as an S7 with a new bumper as S7 test mules have been regular fixtures in testing locales over the last few weeks. Even still, we're pretty sure this is an RS 7 due to that snarling maul.

      Other than the chin, the car looks as if it could be an S7 spec. The otherwise S-line ...
    3. Audi A6 Avant Photo Embargo Broken By T-Mobile Online, S-line Photos Revealed



      T-Mobile Germany appears to have had the A6 Avant photo embargo materials ahead of time and also to have pulled the trigger a few hours early. Whether by design to draw traffic or by accident, the result is that viewers get to see Audi's new wagon a few hours early.

    4. Spied: Could this Brawny R8 Test Mule Indicate New ultra GT Offering?



      We're not sure what to make of this R8 GT-based test mule spotted at the Nurburgring yesterday. Clearly the car is a factory mule and clearly it's been upgraded. Here's a quick rundown of the changes we spot.

      *Bigger racing-style front chin spoiler
      *Front and rear fender flaps indicating a likely wider track
      *Small Gurney flaps on rear to each side of spoiler ...
    5. More A5/S5 Facelift Spy Photos, This Time as a Coupe



      We've seen Sportbacks, we've seen Cabriolets, and now we've seen a coupe test mule of the upcoming A5/S5 facelift. Night shots like some of the others we've seen recently, some of the new character lines are still easily seen despite some effort to disguise on the part of Audi. Most notably in the shot above, check out the A6-style headlight shape that should change the look of the A6 considerably.

    6. Audi RS 6 Renders Take Stab at Look of Next-Gen C7 RS Wagen



      Check out this render of the next-generation RS 6. It's a bit premature to guess how accurate it is but the look is pretty cool nonetheless.

      So what do we know of the RS 6? We do expect there will be one and it'll be powered by a higher-hp version of the upcoming 4.0T FSI. We don't expect the RS 6 to bow though before next year's Geneva show because the S6, S7 and S8 all have to bow before ...
    7. Spied: Audi S6 Avant Test Mule Spotted

    8. New Audi S1 Renders and Spy Photos Reveal Upcoming Smallest S-car



      It's a little known fact that the Audi S1 was supposed to be revealed nearly a year ago at the Paris Auto show. Paris organizers even listed the car as a headliner on the show website for a while but for some reason not shared wtih us, sources at Audi AG tell us the car was pulled from the mix. Several months later though in January, we had a chance to test drive a prototype A1 1.4 ...
    9. Possible Audi R8 GT Spyder Test Mule Spotted at Neckarsulm Factory



      Spy photographers captured this interesting looking R8 tester exiting Audi's Neckarsulm facility this morning. What otherwise might appear as a run-of-the-mill Sepang Blue R8 Spyder is likely an early production mule of the upcoming R8 GT Spyder.

      The most obvious change is the GT's large carbon fiber wing spoiler affixed to the rear deck. A closer look also reveals the red ...
    10. More S7 Test Mules Spied in Spain



      The guys over at quattroholic and their mediterranean spy photographer contacts have nabbed another Audi mule testing in Spain. This time around the car appears to be an S7. The car sports HN license plate (HN standing for Heilbronn, the same that's on all of Audi's Heilbronn-based test cars) and could indicate it's a quattro GmbH mule (thus RS 7), but our money ...
