Rumors – Audi R4 Axed, A2 Delayed
According to a recent report from Auto Motor and Sport, the German automaker Audi has decided to kill the highly-anticipated R4 model due to the reason that it might steal customers of the TT and Porsche’s Boxster and Cayman models. In addition, the Volkswagen Bluesport variant would likely have been way too expensive to be competitive.
From the same report, we find out that the revival of the A2 model has been postponed for 2016. Nothing is certain at the moment, but it seems that VW desires to build the car on a group platform, for reducing production costs, instead of a bespoke chassis.
We certainly hope that these rumors will turn out to be untrue, especially the ones regarding the Audi R4, but I’m sure that there are many among you that wish to see a new generation of the A2, and this time, hopefully, it won’t be that awful as far as the design is concerned.
We’ll keep you posted once more information occurs. Stay tuned.
