Audi R4 remains a mystery

Audi R4 remains a mystery

Audi R4 fq

Speculation that Audi will debut a new mid-engine model called the R4 has been rampant for at least the past two years. Audi made it clear one year ago that the R4 was not in their product plans but the talk continues. In addition to the rumors, we now have some rendered speculation on what the R4 might look like thanks to freelancer and Audi enthusiast Jan Kamenistiak.

It’s not exactly known where the mid-engine R4 would fit in Audi’s model lineup, with some placing it above the TT and others below. Others think it would share a platform with a possible production version of the Volkswagen BlueSport Concept that debuted at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. Known for their skill at dressing a car eight different ways and convince the public that they’re buying something totally unique, Audi would likely help themselves to the VW/Audi parts bin for the R4’s power- and drivetrain bits, as there are plenty of worthy four-cylinder engines — both gas and diesel — and dual clutch transmissions to choose from.
