    1. MQB Audi A3 Coupe Envisioned by Theophilus Chin



      Check out the latest imagineered Audi from Theophilus Chin. Earlier this week we featured his take on a B8 RS 4 with the latest facelift changes and now he's put together a production-looking 2-door take on the A3 sedan concept shown last spring in Geneva.

    3. Even More Audi RS 4 Test Mule Sightings Reported

You know... the one where the BMW owner climbs on the roof of his car at a fairly decent clip and jumps onto a car carrier loaded with new Audis.

    7. 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.

      It's no secret that Porsche is working on a baby Cayenne known internally as Cajun and set to be based on the same MLB matrix used for the Audi Q5 and said to share a fair amount with the four-ringer crossover.
