Audi Quattro concept gets the axe, Audi will not build the sports coupe
This is one enthusiasts hoped would somehow get approved but unfortunately it was not meant to be. The Quattro Coupe was last reported on in August that it could possible see production in 2015 to honor 35 years of Quattro. This news was greeted warmly by Audi enthusiasts and performance enthusiasts alike as a lightweight (sub 3000 pound) all wheel drive 2-seater with 380 horsepower from an inline-5 turbo is incredibly appealing.
Sadly, CAR reports that Audi came to the conclusion that the market for conventional performance cars just isn't there. This does not make much sense as there is little that is conventional about a lightweight all wheel drive 5-cylinder turbo 2-seater. Instead of this sports car we will get more crossovers and SUV's, hurray. So expect more Q variants and less dedicated enthusiasts sports cars, at least from Audi.
