      Over the weekend some images surfaced that appear to be design drawings of the rumored Audi R4 e-tron Concept Car expected to debut Paris.

    2. Audi R4 or Whatever It Is May Not Be e-tron According to More Photos from Ski Jump Photo Shoot



      We've just been passed these photos of that mystery Audi on location at that ski jump photo shoot. Originally rumored to be an R4 e-tron concept car we're not so sure that's true anymore... at least the e-tron part. These new detail shots posted in our forums reveal details inconsistent with an electric e-tron concept model including big open alloys, large disc brakes and alloy exhaust tips.

      Yesterday we relayed a report from WorldCarFans suggesting the rumor of an 'Audi R4 e-tron' roadster concept bound for Paris.

    5. R4 e-tron Roadster Concept for Paris Says WorldCarFans



      The website WorldCarFans is reporting that Audi plans an 'R4 e-tron Roadster' for this month's Paris Auto Show. According to the WCF story, the car may be a roadster version of the coupe (above) shown last January in Detroit.

      So What Do We Think?
      WCF is consistent at running a lot of news but isn't always right. In the past they've even run CGIs we've ...
    6. Georg Kacher Hints at Audi R5 e-tron on Automobile Magazine Website



      Automobile Magazine's German contributor Georg Kacher has filed a story with the US mag that focuses squarely on the idea of a newer, smaller mid-engine sportscar from Audi. It appears Kacher recently got access to the Detroit e-tron concept car for a quick test drive complete with pics and has published full intel on what he expects from Audi and he's decided to start calling the car 'R5'. ...
    7. Audi R4 Roadster Impression by Andrei Avarvarii



      As rumors continue to swirl surrounding mid-engine Audis, we've just run across this render by artis Andrei Avarvarii. This roadster is most obviously based upon the Volkswagen Bluesport concept car images and, if accurately date tagged, predates the 2010 Detroit e-tron concept Audi chose to show.

      We found the image over at the German Audi blog QARSI.de and have provided a link to that site ...
