All-wheel drive is an increasingly common feature on cars today, from grocery-fetching Subaru wagons to small crossovers. But it was rally racing that really convinced automakers that sending power to all four wheels gives cars a massive edge on ice, snow, dirt and more.
Tesla’s recently shifted forecast of achieving 500,000 Model S, X and 3 deliveries by 2018 sounded laughably absurd, but joining the circus will be Audi’s Peter Hochholdinger, juggler of production at the German automaker’s flagship manufacturing facility.
No car in the top World Endurance Championship LMP1-H class went the entire 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps trouble-free. Fortunately, the No. 8 Audi’s biggest problem was relatively minor. Joining it in the top three was a limping Porsche and a car in the slower, non-manufacturer LMP1 class.

Looks like those crazy jokers at Audi have a nice surprise for us this evening: the all-new 2017 Audi TT RS, which comes in coupe and roadster form with a thundering five-cylinder engine packing 400 horsepower. Thanks, Audi!
A single out-of-compliance part has excluded the overall winner from the World Endurance Championship’s 6 Hours of Silverstone results, reports Sportscar365. The No. 7 Audi R18 had worn its front skid block down to less than the required 20mm minimum thickness.
No automaker is the king of vaporware sports cars like the Volkswagen Group. Rumored concepts like a sub-Boxster Porsche, a Volkswagen Bluesport Roadster or an exotic to slot below the Audi R8 never seem to come to fruition. But a German magazine seems confident an Audi R6, based on the Boxster and Cayman, is really…
After yesterday’s discussion of the saddest car configurators on the internet somebody sent us one on the opposite end of the awesomeness spectrum. This online 3D configurator for the Audi A4 Allroad blows every other one I’ve seen out of the water.
A new Audi RS3 sedan is in the works, and it’s coming to America in 2017 as a 2018-model car. A source within the company leaked more details to Car and Driver, confirming that the ‘18 RS3 will get a new, more powerful engine as well. It’s a tried and true formula we adore: more power + small Audi = yes, please.
I’ll tell you what customer service is: it’s when one of your buyers says “Hey, make me that car!” and then you say “Heck yeah, sure!” That’s what Audi did for one unnamed (and no doubt deep-pocketed) European buyer who requested an Audi A8 extended limousine. It’s surprisingly quick, too!
Yep, totally thought this was the new S4. Same headlight kink, same Audi same-ness. But this is the smaller Audi sedan, the S3. And it’s new-ish.
Remember that time Audi made a concept R8 with a huge diesel V12? It had 738 pound-feet of torque. That would have been a really fun car no one bought.
Back in 2009, Audi mystified the world by introducing a four-door version of the two-door version of their midsize four-door family car. This was the Audi A5 Sportback and we never got it in the United States, but it looks like we will.
Ever since the Audi TT got a dual-clutch transmission back in 2003, these are-they-manuals-or-nah gearboxes have become the hot new thing in the high-performance car world. But Audi first tried out a double-clutch more than 30 years ago, in the fearsome Sport Quattro S1 rally car.
Audi’s new SQ7 TDI comes with 429 horsepower and 663 lb-ft thanks to an electric compressor, two turbochargers and a trick 48‑volt electrical subsystem. They say this wonderdiesel is also “ideally suited for markets such as the United States.” The way things are going, we’ll see about that, but the SQ7 is still very…
The future of cars is looking more and more electric every day, and if this leaked product plan from Audi is any indication, the brand plans to unleash its own electric lineup to the world in two years with a crossover and SUV.
