    1. Another Kacher Report on Audi & Ducati Deal



      We covered the potential purchase of Ducati by Audi story when it first broke over on CAR Magazine's website. The author was Georg Kacher, a usually reliable source who also contributes to the American buff Automobile Magazine. Kacher has since published another piece over on Automobile with some further details of the situation so we're ...
    2. Supposed Audi R8 e-tron Interior Spy Photo Surfaces. Could Reveal R8 Facelift Interior.



      Two photos (one above, one via the link below) surfaced this week of what is purported to be the interior of the R8 e-tron. If that is the case (and we're guessing it is), then this begs the question of how much of these changes will also be seen in the new and facelifted audi R8 when it debuts likely at the Paris Motor Show in September.

      What Do We See?
      The most obvious change here is a much bigger ...
    3. Audi Mulling A4 SuperAvant as MPV Alternative



      Automobile Magazine has published a report today from European contributor Georg Kacher - a journalist with contacts on the board level at Audi who is often privy to Audi plans early in gestation. When we catch a far-out rumor from Kacher, we often read it with interest since it speaks to the thought patterns of the Audi board though doesn't always ...
    4. Sebring 2012: Gargantuan Race Gallery Uploaded



      How's that for menacing? Allan McNish at the wheel of @AudiR18_2. We believe the car looks meanest when viewed from the height of a Sebring gator, traveling at a rapid pace and with heat swirls flying off its jet wash. Had competitors seen that in their rearviews they likely got the heck out of the way, solidifying McNish's, Kristensen's and Capello's ...
    5. Sebring 2012: Three Audi R8 LMP1s and A Pinto. Yup, It's Vintage Racing Sebring Style



      Somewhere on the way to the track, past the guy with the pot leaf camo Ramcharger and the fried bubble gum vendor (no really) you might just catch a heat of some vintage racing. This is Sebring after all, where world class (Audi R8 LMP1 x 3) meets low class (Ford Pinto... no offense to the owner, it's kind of cool). We've got shots of the Audis ...
    6. 12 Hours of Sebring: Audi Owner Laps + Hospitality and Corral Photos Now Live



      Part of every Audi Motorsport Experience hospitality program is always the gratuitous parade lap of the course. In this case, a large number of Audi owners had a chance to do a lap of the fabled Sebring track. Fourtitude contributors Bill Cho and Tim Enders took our Sebring rides (Audi R8 and A7 respectively) for the lap while I parked myself ...
    7. 12 Hours of Sebring: ALMS Autograph Session Photo Gallery Live



      Here's another set of photos from last weekend's 12 Horus of Sebring. This particular collection comes from the usual ALMS series autograph session in the race paddock. Highlights include a herd of cows visiting Audi's 2011 Le Mans winners and Audi rally legend (as well as retired Floridian) Hannu Mikkola who stopped in for a visit with ...
    8. 12 Hours of Sebring: Practice & Qualifying Photo Gallery Now Live



      First an apology for the lack of coverage of Sebring thus far. Our main laptop for production died while in Sebring for the 12 Hours and we were left a bit out of the race ourselves as a result. Laptop now working and data luckily secure, we're getting caught up just as quickly as possible. First up chronologically are photos from practice ...
    9. TT Blog - Post 5 - Revelations

      Unfortunately, I'm starting to think there is something wrong with my 3rd gear shift fork.

I verified by removing the airbox and shfiting through the positions at the tranny then looking into the car to see that the shifter changed position.

      After 1 year of driving, I'm loving the car again. But at the same time, I'm getting that itch for a new car again. The last new car I bought was a Truck. I want a new toy, and while the TT is great - some of the newer cars are really enticing. The Boxster has improved and I love the newer interiors. I could almost see myself driving a Nissan/Infiniti (2 door), and yet the long commute has me hankering for a big 2 door coupe (CLS, 650, etc..) I have a trip to Vietnam coming
