This is very much my shit. I know I can’t have one, yet I will watch and listen and dream.

I think we can all agree that if given the choice between the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo and an Audi RS4 Avant, we know which one we would choose. One is a very sleek and sporty hatchback-sedan thing. The other is an actual wagon.

Like the Panamera, the RS4 will also be powered by a 2.9-liter turbocharged V6 which should make around 440 horsepower in the Avant. There is a part of me that is very sad about the departure of the naturally aspirated 4.2-liter V8, because there was something wonderful about cramming an high-revving eight-cylinder engine into that body style.

As for seeing one of these Avant cars on our shores, we already know that this is America and our freedom is limited to only one fast wagon. Thus, we must get our satisfaction from pictures and videos from a land far away.
