    1. Essen 2011 Photo Galleries and Wrap-Up



      Often compared to America's SEMA Show, the tuner-focused Essen Motor Show is really something more unto itself. Whereas the SEMA Show is really an industry only affair and with no day for a media push, Essen is there for the public, the car enthusiast and also there as a platform of PR for tuners... so yes, a day reserved for the media. Where you'd need to be a distributor to place an order ...
    2. Spied: Audi Q5-bodied Porsche Cajun Mules Testing in Northern Sweden



      Given the two will share platform components, it's not been much of a surprise that Porsche continues to test prototypes of their upcoming Cajun crossover with Audi Q5 bodies. The Audi Q5 is in production and the site of a Q5 on public roads isn't exactly something special. Perhaps these mules go all but unnoticed most of the time... key terminology being "most of the time" since ...
    3. Video(s): Audi Sport's Leena Gade in Profile



      By this time, we doubt Audi Sport engineer Leena Gade needs any introduction. As the first female engineer to win Le Mans (this year with the R18 TDI's momentous win), she's earned her place in the motorsport lexicon and the spotlight turned its way in her direction.

      Audi of America has produced several video shorts ...

    5. Virtual Holiday Mantel 2011: Merry Holidays from AutoSpies



      Okay, it's a bit heavy on the self promotion but we'll give AutoSpies a pass for the dual Audi product placement on their 2011 holiday e-card.

    8. Hot or Not? Audi A1 allroad Imagineered by Theophilus Chin



      Pixels on photos of the A1 Sportback have barely dried and photoshop renderer extraordinaire Theophilus Chin has already begun to take liberties with Audi's little 5-door. Taking allroad design cues and adding them cleanly to the A1 Sportback, Chin has deftly created a realistic looking A1 allroad. And though we've not heard any confirmation of such a vehicle, we're guessing it will cause some controversy amongst ...

      Here's a new video short from Audi. Watch it here.

    10. Audi of America Communications Chief Jeff Kuhlman Takes Global Position at Nissan



      Audi of America Chief Communications Officer Jeff Kuhlman will be leaving his position in Herndon to take a global PR position with Nissan in Japan. For Kuhlman this is a move to a more senior position, and while we wish him luck in the future, we'll also miss working with him in our role covering the Audi beat. Kuhlman is a veteran communications executive who's offered us sound advice and much-appreciated respect and support over ...
