"Baby R8" Audi R4 could be on it's way


The latest rumor from Ingolstadt is that Audi is highly considering the R4. If the decision is made to produce the "baby R8" that slots between the TT and R8 it would take three years to reach production.

Power would likely follow from the TT RS using the 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo, producing 400bhp with of course quattro four-wheel drive. It could have a mid-mounted engine if it follows the chasis from the 2009 VW Bluesport concept. This makes the most sense since VW could use this for their new sportscar and Porsche's new entry level model. Shared platforms have worked well in the past for VW, Audi, and Porsche with the Q7, Cayenne, and Touareg.

Pricing is said to be around 58,000€
