    Rumors, Renders & Spy Photos

    Rumors Audi product, spied test mules, and prototypes.

    1. Facelifted R8 Teased in New Video from Audi



      Audi tv has released a new video celebrating five years of production of the R8. Most of the video is footage of Audi's mid-engine supercar in various guises (coupe, Spyder, 4.2, 5.2, GT), though the very end of the video gets even more interesting as a shadowy image reveals the facelifted R8 due later this year. Not much can be gleaned from the pic (seen above), but it appears the R8 has a fixed rear wing and smaller grille inlets ...
    2. Spied (Again): Facelifted Audi Q5 S-line



      Spy photographers working in the northern test areas of Sweden have again spied the facelifted Q5. Just as the previously spotted black US-spec car spied a few weeks ago, this white European model shows some basic disguise around the grille corners and older headlight/taillight clusters but this is undeniably a facelift with A6-inspired S-line bumper trim.

      How do we know ...
    3. 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. After re-checking our calendar to make sure it wasn't April 1, we took a closer look at the story. Penned by Georg Kacher, we don't question its accuracy in any way and as such it's worth considering the details. ...
    4. Proposed Audi R8 Baby Brother, Rumored R4 or R5 Model Not Green Lighted



      More bad news for proponents of radical growth of Audi's sports car lineup - the proposed "little brother to the Audi R8" has been cancelled according to a highly placed source at Audi AG. Apparently when company directors looked into the feasibility it was determined that there just wasn't enough room for a car to be placed between the top TT RS and the base R8. ...
    5. Audi quattro Concept Feasibility Turns Up Short. Project Halted.



      In a roundtable interview with quattro GmbH product boss Stefan Reil at the Geneva Motor Show this week, the German executive confirmed that a decision about the quattro Concept had been reached. Unfortunately for fans of the car, the car will not make it into production.

      The large reason sighted was cost. In order to meet the extremely light ...
    6. New Audi A3 Photos Leaked Today



      Photos of the new Audi A3 have leaked today ahead of their reveal in Geneva in two weeks. Releasing photos ahead of a show, especially of production cars, is common practice at manufacturers like Audi and we just saw the RS 4 photos slip out in similar fashion last week. More than likely, that these photos popped up today by some eager press suggests that we'll see even more ...
    7. Next-Generation MLB Audi Q7 Spied Cold Weather Testing in Sweden



      Spy photographers have caught a next generation Audi Q7 mule cold weather testing in Sweden today. If it doesn't look much different from the current car, don't fret. Audi usually tests cars early in their gestation period wearing bodywork from the current car.

      Underneath the Q7 bodywork is where the key changes are. The next-generation Q7 will migrate to Audi's modular longitudinal ...
    8. Audi Q5 Platform-Shared Porsche Crossover Name Changes to Macan



      Porsche has announced today a name change for its small Audi Q5-based crossover. Dubbed "Cajun" during development by Porsche themselves, Cajun was the believed nomenclature for the crossover that's been seen testing wearing Audi Q5 bodywork from the Nurburgring to northern Sweden. That name is officially changed though, confirmed as "Macan" by Porsche just this morning.
      ...
    9. Leaked Official Photo of New Audi A3? Sure Looks Like It!



      We're getting close to the Geneva Auto Show. In case you'd seen the photo blasts of the new Audi RS 4 and the TT RS plus and hadn't done the math, it's messaging time in these weeks ahead of the main event that first week of March. It's always a game to guess which reveals will come ahead of time and which ones will be saved until that first press day (or perhaps the Volkswagen Group reveal). Still, we'd bet our money it'll be ...
    10. Audi RS 4 Photos Leaked via Broken European Embargo



      Here it is! It appears those mysterious Polish bumper photos were spot on. What you're looking at is the initial mix of embargo photos released to the European press this week. We've found at least one site who's blown the embargo and since we're not held back by this particular embargo we've decided to re-post them now that they're published and out ...
